I'm kinda new when it comes to OC,
So I did an overclocking using a video example and I ended up with this result. It didn't crash yet, I ran Cinebench without a problem and AIDA64 stress test.
My main question is, why is the voltage around 1.2V under load and it's not reaching the 1.350V what I did set in the BIOS.
CPU Core/Cache Voltage on Manual mode
CPU Core Voltage Override on 1.350V
XMP II
I disabled Asus MultiCore Enhancement
SVID Behavior Typical Scenario
AVX Negative Offset on 0

Hey there,

That's called vdroop. It happens when you set voltage manually. When the CPU is at load, the voltage can drop, and is often less than the set applied manual voltage. It's pretty normal.

You can try balance that out a little by using LLC. But you should really play with LLC too much or put it up too high, as it can result in overvolting.

Try LLC on it's lowest two setting on your mobo and see if it impacts the vdroop a little.

If I don't try LLC and I experience stability with these settings, should I keep it? Can I damage my CPU with this? If its good I leave it like this.
