Long shot but have you tried resetting the ec chip? It's possible it's corrupted. I unfortunately suffer from that problem.
To reset. Power down the machine, turn off psu. Wait for rgb lights to turn off. Pull cmos battery for 2 mins. I like to hold down power button to help clear capacitors. Press clear cmos button then reinstall battery.
I'd enter bios and load optimized default then run windows and see if it helps bring voltage readings back to normal.
Followed your advice, left the battery out 5 minutes and flushed it. (see findings bellow).

I use a Predator 360, with the what ever fan curve Asus has programmed for the CPU fan slot. Temps never go over 48/50C according to the CH6 temp sensor. According to the CPU sensor 62C.
Ok run 2 sets of benchmarks (x 3 runs each) since I removed the battery for 5 minutes, and system had proper "cold/boot".
The only difference after removing the battery, SOC voltage went down to 1.003v max. (stock) from the usual 1.199v-1.264v had earlier (with current 1501) and with the 1701 bios.
Stock settings, running 3 runs of the CPUZ benchmark. Thats the benchmark with 7 out of 8 cores are running at 4090Mhz and 1 at 3690Mhz. Vcore max 1.570 soc max 1.003, temps 42C max. (minimums and currents at around 0.6-0.8v).
LLC Level 4, vcore manual 1.425v, SOC manual 1.15v. All 8 cores stuck at 3193mhz like before no XFR boost.
Vcore Max, 1.504v, minimum, and current range between 1.482-1.504 all time. SOC 1.119v minimum & current. Max 1.221v.
Max temp 49C.
Went to Ryzen master, set the voltage to 1.443 (default), clock 4100Mhz, and ram 3200mhz. Nothing else changed. And worth to post this, because makes no sense. Yes there is the odd spike at 1.526v, however most of the time, the system sits at 0.776v, even if the cores show constant speed 4100Mhz.
lordzed83, installed 9920 beta bios.
a) Stock settings, core goes 1.570v, soc 0.981v. Cores running at 3720, and 2 boost at 4123 when running CPUz. When benchamr not running power goes between 0.776 and 1.439v all the time.
b) LLC 4, vcore manual 1.425v, soc manual 1.15v setting.
Power is constant 1.504 except when running the benchmark drops to 1.486v. SOC 1.199v constantly. Core speed 3218 constantly, no XFR boost. Temps high 50s when benching.Edited by Apoll - 10/19/17 at 4:38pm
