I'm getting vdrops even with LLC 7. Dropping from 1.270 to 1.243 at most under load with benchmarking and gaming. I've read that this shouldn't be happening with LLC 6 and I would expect not at all with LLC 7. With LLC 6 it dropped all the way down to 1.209.
Any ideas why this is happening?

You say you are using XMP.....can I ask what your vccio and vccsa are?
Edit: I wasn't suggesting the io and sa were affecting the vdroop, just wondering what XMP was setting them at, since XMP seems to run rampant with them.
Hello folks. So I’ve managed to get 4.90 ghz (no offset), uncore 4.6 perfectly stable in all conditions and stress tests at 1.30v set in bios. Under heavy avx loads it draws 1.328v as shown in hwinfo. I managed to pass most stress tests at 5ghz (-1 avx) with 1.38v, but the temps are too high for my nhu14s to handle.
