Indeed.


I think I'm going to go without LLC though. After about 10 minutes of OCCT with LLC off at 1.325v I got a blue screen, so I rebooted and tried 1.275v with LLC on. It booted fine and it runs OCCT but when I do the linpack test something in my case makes this hissing sound whenever the CPU is at 100% load.

That's bad.

It doesn't do this with the OCCT test though.

I'll try linpack at 1.33v with LLC off. If it hisses there too I'll just stop doing the linpack test.

EDIT: Ran Linpack test for 5 minutes with LLC off with the vcore set to 1.331 (reads 1.3 in windows and bios)... no hissing at all. So whatever LLC is doing is causing something to hiss. I'd rather have higher idle temps than components making noise, so I'll stick with the higher voltage. According to intel its still well within the spec since it tops out at 1.3v at idle and drops to 1.23-1.25 under full load. Temps are fine too. In Linpack i was getting 62-65C on all cores, in OCCT small data test I get 58-62C.
