    Actually you can leave Load Line Calibration on Auto as well and Adaptive would work just fine. However, LLC is one of the parameters I prefer to control even with basic overclocks where I allow BIOS defaults to do most of the work. LLC, in my experience, can sometimes be leaned on too much, or too little under default. Some aggressive overclocks can make LLC run high under Auto and potential risk higher levels of vcore overshoot on transient load situations. I found on the Hero XI LLC 6 provides a solid predictable vcore with still some minimal droop which is good for the safety of the chip.

    Even on simple overclocks I always manually adjust Vcore, SA/IO voltage and LLC. All tend to be higher than needed on defaults and (with a good CPU) can be lowered to save on heat and CPU degradation over time.

    Like I said above, however, when some users are pressing to get every last MHZ out of their chip and use adaptive voltage, manually tuning all the UEFI settings per the user guides out there can help. Transient voltage changes can wreak havoc on stability when your pressed up against the wall. Some find setting higher adaptive OC voltage and applying offsets, along with custom AC/DC line and other power parameters, helpful in keeping the voltages from dipping under AVX and non AVX workloads, as well as prevent higher than desired VID parameters. For me, I just prefer to keep it simple, and Asus defaults for most items seem to work well other than toning down some voltage settings I mentioned.

My maximum VID is very reasonable and sustained vcore under load (with a little droop) is solid enough to hold my chip stable. Switching between AVX and non-AVX work loads doesn't cause any instability. Like I said, I went the simple route.

    That said, I may not be squeezing out every last MHZ possible where custom settings would aid me. But if I was going that route I'd be using static voltage and have speed step, speed shift, and all C states disables as well.

    Am I missing something leaving ACDC LL on Auto? I've often trusted Asus default settings over the years when going for simple overclocks. Aside from trimming down a few default heavy voltage situations (like Vcore, SA/IO voltage) and custom tuning LLC I leave it all alone.

    No, not missing anything. As said, when SVID is set to best case the optimal values are set automatically

    I'll post you mine settings, since we both run 9700K

    Step 1:
    First of all either your chip is not the greatest specimen or it’s your bios, make sure your BIOS is set correctly removing all limits, the one by der8auer works like a charm:

    Step 2:
    Take anything you read about 9900K overclock with a grain of salt, they might be similar chips on paper but in overclocking they are completely different. Where you wouldn’t want to push 9900K to anything past 1.3v you can easily do on 9700K, it runs much cooler. I’d say anything up to 1.35 you could do easily without breaking a sweat about your CPU. And leave SVID on auto.

    I am running, 5.2 synced at all core @1.325 adaptive, LLC6, avx offset 3.
    Don't be scared of LLC6, actually in my testing, there's a HUGE gap from 5 to 6.
    5 is still mediocre, can't hold voltage and doesn't produce too much heat, but 6 is what you need, barely any voltage loss, almost flat power delivery but it does generate a lot more heat. Check with you cooler if it can handle it. But if I can hold it with 240 AIO, then you Dark Rock should hold it as well.
