Question Strange voltages on ryzen 5 3600

Hi,

I ve noticed strange behavior on my ryzen 5 3600.

Spec:
  • Gigabyte B450 Aorus elite (with dyncamic vcore offset -0.126, xmp profile)
  • Ryzen 5 3600
  • Cooler: Fortis 3 HE1425
  • MSI Radeon RX 5700 GAMING X
  • G.Skill RipjawsV 16GB DDR4-3200MHz 2x8gb
Look on my HWiNFO 64 under load (OCCT, small data, avx2):

And this is my HWiNFO 64 iddle (basically chrome):


Is this normal volategs (if not, how to reduce it, to make it more stable)? Why HWiNFO 64 sometimes shows that core VID (0 ,1,2 etc) have minimum 0.200 V?

You should use Ryzen Master to monitor voltages and temps...but nothing you're seeing in HWiNFO64 is strange.

Ryzen chips boost millisecond spikes to over 1.4v on light single core loads (like background Windows tasks) all the time to maximize performance...while boosting multi core work loads at lower volts to control heat.

It's how they are designed to work.
