I did it, nothing changed. I use latest version.
As previously mentioned, go into the boards bios, go to the monitor tab where you can view voltages and temperatures and show us a picture from that. It looks like from the screens shots you've posted apart from some slightly high temps (HD's for example) everything looks ok but this would confirm it :)

Seems pretty normal to me. What happens here is CPU-Z grabbing the wrong value, for some reason.

Curiously, the DIMM voltage looks way high (should be around 1.5 V), but the sensor may not be correct on that one (otherwise the RAM would be fried).

If what AIDA64 shows you more or less matches with whatever voltages you get in the BIOS pages, I think the system is fine.

cpu z used to show about 1.28 for my 4790K vcore reading and that was overclocked to 4.6 on all cores .. the reading must be wrong..

So you're on the right track, but we need to see the voltage settings in the BIOS.

How can i find?
The manual doesn't say anything about voltage settings, except for DRAM, so it's possible that such settings are not available, considering the H81 chipset was not meant for overclocking.

That board lacks everything starting from an non existing power phase so i would recommend getting an h97 or z97 board they go real cheap these days.

i think the basic board dosnt have anything for cpu z to read from so its just inventing something.. but if it dosnt have adjustments it will run default settings which will be okay.. stop worrying about a reading which is quite clearly a nonsense one..

I can’t believe that so many people still don’t know that CPUZ doesn’t always report the correct voltage. :roll:

Please don’t try to freak people out by saying it will blow up when there’s nothing to worry about. Maybe I should share one of my old LN2 results with my “CPU voltage” at 3.1 volts?? ;)

We're also trying to make sure which voltage it's reading. Better safe than sorry.

Aida64 shows what I consider a correct value if you ignore the CPU core reading and look at the CPU Vid readout which shows in other monitoring software he has posted.

TLDR... if he was actually running 1.76V through that CPU, he'd be cooking it at idle...and it would be dead sooner than later. hwmonitor shows otherwise on temps so its reading the FIVR or its erroneous.

Update you bios, chipset drivers, etc and see if that helps. Otherwise, it is what it is.

All covered! :) Correct assessments, and he’s figured out his Vcore is correct in AIDa64 at least.

That's great and a shame as I thought it might show something a little more. Is there an advanced option for your bios, something that might show more details? If not, the first picture shows were the 1.76v is being picked up from. I'm guessing them it's possibly giving things a little more than maybe needed but that's not a bad thing as I think every board I've had reports/gives a little bit more volts to things when set to auto... :)
