On hyperthreading disabled chips its always vcore.
Load, I was testing with the X264 encoding benchmark.

For example, c16 at 4400mhz command rate 1, makes me need 1.29v SA, 1.22v DMI. The VCCIO voltage is related almost directly (but not entirely) to whatever your cpu cache frequency is at.

Having my ram at c14 3800mhz, command rate 1, also requires me to have my SA at 1.28-1.29, and dmi at 1.21875-1.225v.

Having my ram at c15 3900mhz, command rate 1, which is slower than the two configurations above, only requires my SA to be 1.26-1.275, and dmi at 1.21-1.22v

Just some observations that may help whoever reads this.

These observations were done on a asus Maximus hero xi wifi motherboard. LLC set to level 6, with AC and DC internal loadline set to 0.07 for both.
Would the same assumption that you need more SA volts for like Dual Rank vs non Dual Rank ram chips? Trying to run on a 9700K 1.18/1.2 Vccio/VccSa for 3200 cas 14 2x16gb @ 3600 MHz resulted in my system being hosed after a Windows update. Perhaps needed more volts?

EarlZ With my processor I get a BSOD on idle at 4.9Ghz and I need to use +75 on AI AC for it to be idle stable, is there another way around this high voltage requirement while still being able to down clock even if its not for the most power efficient downclocks

Yup! That guide is quite awesome!

Edit currently running 13-17-17-32 stable. Guess this ram can do a bit more!

Try to follow it, despite it being uber LONG you can skip all the first pages and go straight to the "steps" it suggests. It shouldn't take such a long time.
Basically you go for the highest Mhz possible on the first step (like I have a 4000mhz chip but it's only stable at 3800mhz), then you go to tertiary timings (until you get unstable, lowering a bit then testing) then secondaries (or something like that...).

The way I did it as to not get annoyed with all the testing /restarting is: whenever I'm playing single player games (like bannerlord currently) I'd do "one step" of the guide and at the next restart I'd go lower and lower until crash / instability. Then I'd move to the next step. Since bannerlord uses 100% cpu/GPU frequency I think it's enough of a test.

Since I AFK due to kids/wife I also let mem test run whenever I change settings. I'm still not done with my RAM but each day it gets a little better and I don't burn myself only doing OC all day lol
