Well, all I can really say is that I have yet to know of any one who has messed up their mb or cpu by enabling LLC or using the pencil mod. My old p35 board which now belongs to my friend has been going strong for 2yrs now with the mod.

Its your board, I had the same issue which is why I sold it and went with a p45.
