CPU: i7 6700k
Motherboard: Msi z170s SLi plus
Ram: 16gb g-skill aegis 3000mhz
SSD/HDD: 128gb adata ssd, 1.5tb toshiba HDD
GPU: Gtx 1070
PSU: Corsair cx 500
Chassis: Bitfenix Comrade
OS: Windows 10 pro

I had this issue with my 6600k as well. Cpu-z is recording the correct voltage but the board believes it is at 2.04v. The issue with this is that because the board believes it is so high I cannot increase it for overclocking. I have tried several bios versions as well.

By several, which versions have you tried? On that note, you shouldn't be downgrading a BIOS version once you've updated it. To add, you should list your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Try and see if HWInfo and HWMonitor run individually, say the same thing about voltages.

I updated this BIOS in increment eventually making it to the final version.
HWinfo is showing 1.225V on the core and so is HWmonitor with a maximum of 1.23v
I think something reporting the voltage to the BIOS is not functioning properly
