[SOLVED] Core voltage in CPU-Z is much higher than in bios

Hello.
Recently I decided to overclock my ryzen 5 2600.
I tested 4.0 GHz on 1,3125v and it is stable, but when CPU is under load voltage raises even to 1,36v.
How do I fix it? It is really annoying, because when I set 1,40v in bios to reach 4.1 GHz it raises to 1,45v or 1,46v and that voltages aren't safe at all. I tried changing LLC option but it didn't work.
These are my specs:
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
Motherboard: ASUS B450-F gaming
PSU: Corsair VS650
I have the latest BIOS version (2301) and here are my bios settings:
BCLK: 100 MHz
CPU core ratio: 40.00
CPU core voltage: 1,3125v on manual
Other voltages are set on auto.
Thanks for help and sorry if I did/write something wrong because I am new here and english is not my primary language.

Don't rely on CPU-Z for Ryzen vcore. I've had the same experience, and CPU-Z is showing vcore from the motherboard sensor I believe and not the actual CPU sensor.

Install HWINFO64, and look for this sensor:



That is your actual vcore. Hope this helps!

Yes mate I heard about it and also figured out that cpu-z shows voltage similar to value called "VDDCR CPU" in hwinfo. Soo I should only watch the core voltage in hwinfo? I don't really want to burn my CPU 😅
