Hi, I have a new ryzen 2600X and I saw with CPUID and Ryzen Master that the voltage it keeps between 1.38-1.45V. In games it keeps at 1.4 or more.
I have MSI B450m Mortar, should I offset or override the voltage?
I haven't updated BIOS firmware

Do you use the High Performance Power Plan ??
If so that will keep your CPU running at Max clocks even at idle.
I would switch to the Ryzen Balanced plan and set the Minimum CPU usage at 10% like this:

That will allow your CPU to downclock when Idle and only boost clocks as needed on as many cores as are needed.

Running multiple monitoring software at the same time can cause the clocks to stay Maxed out as well.

It works but the voltage is still high...
