if your bios is running it at that voltage in auto then thats what it will run it at but it really shouldnt be doing that high though. which makes me wonder if there is some goofy bios settings that you overlooked
if you want the voltage to go down because you are concerned its too high then you have to manually adjust all those settings lol.
i will say that voltage is crazy high for a 3770 non-k
i just upgraded from my non-k 3770. i clocked it to 4GHz and was only running at like 1.10V at the highest i remember. dont remember what i got it down to sorry
im currently running my 3770K at 4.6GHz at 1.288V for reference. but yea as you already know that higher voltage will give you higher temps. try resetting your bios settings. and seeing what happens. looking at your screen shot that is crazy weird if your BIOS is in auto and your are idling using 1.36V.
i would also be freaking out too. but try to play with bios some more hopefully you figure it out.
Thanks for the concern and info! I just went into the BIOS again and there really doesn't seem to be any options in terms of voltage or overclocking . There was an option to hit F9 to load default values so I did that just in case but it made no difference.
Also, upon coming out of sleep mode today, I watched the voltage go all the way up to 1.392!! It went back and forth between 1.38 and 1.39 for less than a minute, then alternated between 1.37-1.38, before returning to 1.36. Right now I'm looking at it going back and forth between 1.360 and 1.368.
In terms of temps, the room I'm in is definitely cold. I need to wear a hoodie and jeans to be comfortable. The minimum temps in this new picture are from right when I came out of sleep mode (also notice the CPU voltage). The temperatures seem to slowly climb until they are a bit under 60C. The cpu fan is working fine but I know that the temps could be significantly lower if another fan was sucking/blowing air out of the system.
Edit: The max temps you see are from last night when I ran Prime95 for a few minutes to make sure the fan was working well. Also, the core second from the left always seems to run at least a few degrees higher than the others so I hope that's ok too.
