What motherboard? Do you have a load line calibration bios setting? sounds like v"droop" (voltage fluctation from bios, where a little is added automatically in higher stress scenarios to prevent crashes).

Double check your settings. There is some discrepancy in what you've mentioned (title says 0.1 diff, vid @ 1.6???, rises to 1.26-1.29?)

A screenshot from bios would help a lot.

Sorry , should have been 1.16 and yes LLC is at 7 to maintain a VCCIN 1.856 without VDROP.. this voltage increase only occurs when AVX instruc are used..

LLC SETTINGS:

My LLC option BIOS are..

LLC Level 1-9 .. Set to 7 now

VRM FREQUENCY .. AUTO (Default)

VRM SPECTRUM .. Disabled (Default)

POWER PHASE - Standard Optimized Extreme - set to AUTO (default)

POWER DUTY set to T.Probe (Default)

Current Capability - 100% to 140% should i leave it be ? - Auto (default)

Input Boot Voltage Auto (default)


.

Is v"drop" bad when its increasing voltage ? (only bad when it drops belov fixed voltage right ?)
