I have the same. Or at least Core Temp says so. But I can run at 3.2 with only 1.34 vcore.

BIOS setting, BIOS readout, CPU-Z idle, or CPU-Z load?

Bios setting is 1.35, bios shows 1.34, cpuz shows 1.34 idle and load. I did the vdroop pencil mod. No vdroop at all.

What exactly does the pencil drop do?

My VID is 1.2625. It still takes me like 1.48 volts to be stable at 3.6 but its prob just cuz my board has such a massive vdroop. 1.44 in cpu-z idle, 1.36 load

elimitates the drop in voltage from idle to load...

If you run a program like OCCT you can watch your voltages drop when under heavy stress, then come back up to normal when idle...

see before and after attached - I have been able to lower my vcore to 1.43 now, cooler temps, less volts on cpu while idle

I'm sorry, but lower VID doesn't exactly mean you'll get a better overclock. That seems to be a huge misconception around here.

There are some that have lower VID's than mine (1.28v) and they still need at least 1.48v to hit 3.6 GHz.

but Generally, lower VID = better potential overclock, but not always, so don't think that a high VID is always a bad thing. You can always undervolt your cpu way below what intel says your VID is...
