Hi.

I just bought an i7 -11700k and I set up core voltage on 1.28. No overclocking, just regular turbo 4.6GHz all cores and two cores 5GHz.

Anyway, I noticed in BIOS mobo set auto voltages for:
SA Voltage 1.398V
IO Voltage 1.044V
IO 2 Voltage (RKL Memory) 1.402V


Should I change anything? Temps are great, but I'm worried about this voltages. Hope nothing degradate.

EDIT: Also, cpu is running 1.28V all the time. How could I set some voltage drops when cpu is idling. I want around 0,7V on idle and 1.28 on load. Is it possible?

I have just set my 11700kf up in a similar way. I let Asus MCE handle to boost algorith, which unlocked power limits while keeping power saving features on. This made the it boost fine, but voltages were too high.
So I set 'SVID behaviour' to best case scenario, which basically presumes you have a better chip/mobo and offsets your voltage curve lower. Ended up with good temps and voltages, 1.4v boost, 0.68v idle....


dunno if your running an Asus board,but mine cranked SA up over 1.4v so I dialed it down to 1.35v which I read is more moderate

If temps are ok, nothing to worry about.
You can use Intel XTU I think.
