so that sorta resolves the light load being way higher then full load (as it should be from my impression of what LLC does). But it leaves me confused as to why full load prime95 is much closer to light load voltage, where as the ibt full load is often quite a bit more then the others.
Is it normal for these kind of differences? or is there some settings I need to play with and adjust to get them to be closer to each other? Idk but it just seems to be quite a big difference between 1.28 in prime95 and 1.31 in ibt
also, in some testing earliar I was stable after stress testing 4.5ghz @ 1.260-1.265 volts (fluctuating) so i would like to get the voltage down more towards that number (tho tbh I didnt do any testing at anything below those so maybe even lower then 1.26 will work too) for full load but Im afraid if i do an even greater minus offset that its going to bring my idle voltage down too low (since with the LLC setting, it makes me have to use a much larger minus offset to bring it back down)
should I be aiming to get the light load voltage around that 1.26 and let the full load be a tad higher? as more often then not im idle/light loaded so that extra voltage at full load isnt going to be actually happening that often and I rather make sure that Im stable at as low a posible voltage for my normal usage and on rare occasions that im fully loaded I can deal with the extra heat from the higher voltage.
and btw my fan is only running @ 30-40% during these stress tests and I havent seen and of the core temps go over 50C... so temps arent really an issue for me at the moment.. Tho i might need to adjust my fan later on as it seems to base its speed on the 'cpu' temp which seems to always be between 1/2 & 2/3 the temp of the cores themselves.. Like the cores reading around 45-50C while the 'CPU' reading is at 25-30C
is it better to pay attention to the temps of the actual cores themselves, or the 'cpu' temp.. or the 'cpu package' (which seems to be the same as the cores themselves)
