When it comes to vcore it is generally accepted that lower is better in the long run for the life of the CPU. However what I am reading - admittedly from the same sources - is that a lower loadline calibration and a higher set vcore in bios is better than a higher loadline calibration and a lower vcore in bios. Ultimately the info I'm being given is that a lower LLC means that although the vcore at idle will be higher in the OS, when it comes to load the vcore needed for a stable OC is lower. So is it safe to run at a higher idle voltage to get lower load voltages and if so, how much idle voltage is too much? EG: LLC5 Bios 1.4 Idle 1.38 Load 1.32 LLC7 Bios 1.37 Idle 1.369 Load 1.35 Is there anyone here that can weigh in on this? Sources are Falkentyne (sp) and Elmor via forums and reddit.
