New Overclocker Here - Voltage Question! Help!
Thanks for reading this!
8700K OC to 4.8GHz @ 1.285v & LLC set to Turbo.
Gigabyte Aouros Z390 Gaming mobo
H100i-v2 AIO (stock Corsair paste)
32GB Gskill TridentZ
My question is regarding the difference between the "Core Voltage" in CPU-Z (showing 1.272v) & the PER-CORE "Core #X VID" displaying in HWiNFO (~1.336v). I don't understand why neither of them are at (under load) the 1.285v I set in BIOS & particularly why the values per core in HWiNFO are ABOVE what I set. I hope that makes sense?
I think the temps look pretty solid considering CPU-Z is hitting me with an AVX workload and I do not have it offset in BIOS.
I'm net at this, so any feedback is appreciated!
