    [SOLVED] Ryzen 5 2600 Voltage differences between load and idle

    I have overclocked my ryzen 2600 to 4.0Ghz using 1.2375v in the BIOS. However, recently I saw that in CPU-z, HWInfo, HWMonitor that the Core voltage is shown as 1.232. The strange thing is that on idle in those programs say the core voltage is 1.232 when the cpu is idle or its usage is less than...
