Does anyone have any idea why I can't find my Core Voltage (VCore) anywhere?

ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3
Intel i5 2500k

Nowhere can I find my Core Voltage. BIOS just says N/A, some programs provide VID but no VCore. ASRock XTU just lists it at 0.000 no matter what. I've been searching and searching for weeks and still have no idea what to do. Maybe the sensor is just broken? I'd really like to overclock but it would be helpful to know what my core voltage is to do that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try HWiNFO64, but it does kind of seem like your sensor may be bad. The VID in cpuz will be close to true core voltage. I can't recall if it updates real time or not. May be a version thing.

Looked around online and found that this issue isn't unheard of. One of the recommendations is to disable Advanced Turbo 50. Apparently having that auto overclock feature enabled hides the vcore readouts and options to alter. It might prevent it from displaying at the OS level as well.

I don't use the Advanced Turbo 50 I overclock manually. Thank you anyways though.

HWiNFO gives me this.

the @1.3961 my actual voltage? It doesn't change at all. I'm using an offset voltage so it should change. Nowhere else in the sensors or otherwise in HWiNFO does it mention VCore or Core Voltage.

Is that really 5.9 GHz? What voltage did you set in the BIOS if you did set one?

I think that 5.9ghz is just the max I can set it at. Currently I have it set to a +. 005 offset with a +.035 additional turbo boost.

Use the sensors button in HWiNFO64. You can modify the sensors you see and rename them if you like.

Heres how I have mine set up...
