This may well be the limit of the MB... pending BIOS version and how it calculates the Vcore.

You can also check your PSU rails - under Posting, OS Idle, OS Load using a multimeter to see if there is any significant drop, esp on the 12V rail.

my 5 volt runs at around 3.8 does that affect the VCore?

You got a Powmax, no wonder. They make crap PSUs. Wattage isn't everything. Here you go.

If a +5v rail is running at 3.8V under idle or load then this is a problem. The Vcore is derived from the +12V rail.

Best use a multimeter to check the real readings as SW/BIOS can be incorrect.
