Hey everyone, I'm using a 9700k on a Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Ultra board and I'm confused on LLC and how it affects CPU vcore. I set my cpu vcore to 1.3v to achieve a 5ghz OC with LLC at Turbo (which I believe is the recommended for Gigabyte boards). However, on CPUID HWMonitor, it says that my voltages are averaging around 1.4v. My question is, does that mean that my CPU is actually running at a consistent 1.4v because of LLC or is it the 1.3v that I set for it in BIOS? Here is a picture of the HWMonitor.

You want to look at Vcore, not VID. If hwmonitor doesn't show that use hwinfo64 (select "sensors only" at launch).
Ahh, thank you so much! It's showing my Vcore around 1.29v-1.3v. Are the VID voltages safe? And should my next step be running Prime95 to see if it's a stable overclock?
