VIII Maximus - too high voltage

Hello, when Im using default BIOS (1902) my Extreme bumping VCore to 1.32-1.35 and ends at 1.39V sometimes.

I tried to set something in bios to prevent from doing it, but nothing helped. I have set Vcore to manual and 1.23V...

Did you save your changes? And what are you doing on your system?

Hello, sorry for late response.

CPU is i7 6700k. Everything is on default - BIOS reset - except VCore settings (first post).

Im just on desktop, watching HWMonitor and opening browser or programs to see CPU activity.

One more question, CPU-Z is showing CPU VID, Hwmonitor too. But when I opened Hwmonitor now, there is also CPU VCORE which looks better - 1.215V. What should I check then?

Nobody?

CPU VID is the voltage that the CPU requests but doesn't necessarily get.
You want to monitor the CPU Vcore, which is actual.

Try a low LLC manual setting (versus default/auto) to help reduce Vcore spikes.
Intel i9 10850K@ 5.3GHz
ASUS ROG Strix Z490-E
Corsair H115i Pro XT
G.Skill TridentZ@ 3600MHz CL14 2x16GB
EVGA RTX 3090 Ti FWT3 Ultra
OS: WD Black SN850 1TB NVMe M.2
Storage: WD Blue SN550 2TB NVMe M.2
EVGA SuperNova 1200 P2
ASUS ROG Strix Helios GX601

Its clear then... Everything is showing only VID. Sometimes when I open HWMonitor there is also VCore but its 1/10. CPU-Z is showing only VID too...
Atleast AIDA64 is showing real voltage.

Thank you.

Check your BIOS -> Extreme Tweaker -> Vcore -> Auto or Adaptive -> Auto
