My first post!:attn:
specs are
6600k currently at 4.5ghz
Noctua NHD14 cpu cooler (can hook 3 fans up to it but so far not needed,just have the normal setup)
asus z170-p motheboard
Corsair Vengeance lpx ddr4 3000mhz
asus strix oc gtx 1070
corsair force le 480gb ssd
corsair tx650 watt psu
zalman z9+ case

so right now max temps are 60c max with XTU, 1.35v with llc level 5 to achieve 4.5 ghz, xmp profile is on so ram is at 3000mhz @1.35v, everything else is default/auto
if i try for 4.6ghz i crash, went as far as 1.375v but no go, thought id come ask some experts before I throw more volts at it.

one weird thing i notice even with llc at level 5 im still getting vdrop down to 1.27'sh, any ideas why?
