How can measuring with a DMM on the pad behing the socket where the voltage is going directly into the cpu at the closest point be inacurate!

Choose to believe what you want but when Raja from Asus who has an engineering background says to take DMM measurements form the socket for true voltage readings then I'll accept the readings coming from the DMM at that point over the readings from software, simple.
I am not saying taking the voltage at the chip is inaccurate, I am saying the reading from inside the chip is just as accurate. Unless you are claiming a company that can create an 8-core processor with built-in voltage regulation doesn't know how to design a circuit to read it's own voltage...
" SenseMI is simply five different features of Ryzen that focus on power, clock speeds, and shuffling data around as quickly as possible. The first, "Pure Power," is a set of temperature, clock speed, and voltage sensors (accurate to 1mA, 1mV, 1mW, and 1°C)..."
"With Ryzen AMD has embedded a number of sensors throughout the chip that accurately measure temperatures, clock speeds, and voltages within 1°C, 1mA, 1mW, 1mV and it has connected all the sensors together using its Infinity Fabric."Edited by TheOldTechGuru - 4/20/17 at 3:40pm
