I have my 2500k @ 4.8ghz on an e3g3 with ccl set to level 1 @ 1.415v.
In cpuz i see it range from 1.408v to 1.440v.
Is this ok?

Temps averaging 34C on normal usage and 64-71-73-69 under burn. Noctua D14 cooler.

how much vdroop? its better to have vdroop than vrise which obviously can be dangerous due to the voltage spikes.

Set the voltage to 1.415v and LLC level 2 and report back with a screenshot of cpu-z under load.

Hmm i have an asrock board, and just use level 1 llc and then just stress for an hour or 2 to see what the max vcore was,
Like that i try to make sure ti wont spike above th maximum safe level of volt's for my cpu the 2600k

This.

The lower you go with LLC the more you will have to use the vcore to compensate for it. LLC is there to do that, however at some levels it does a poor job.

Yeah, I know what LLC does.
Im sayign that at LLC level 2 I would have to go like 1.450Vcore which is stupid.

Id rather have it at 1.415Vcore and every once in awhile swing up to 1.440v than set it to 1.450v 24/7
The only reason I would go level 2 is if these small voltage swings would hurt my cpu.

Will they, or am I fine as I am?
My temps dont break 75c max under burn.
Normal use averages 36C or so
