My z97-HD3 bios sets vCore voltage to 1.392v as optimized default.
Does anyone else have the same mobo and cpu?
What is your default vCore? and what is your BIOS revision?
A kind fellow suggested that I update the BIOS, but I would like to be sure that the latest BIOS update will definitely fix this before I risk a flash update. (Currently on F4)
Thanks for the advice.
I flashed the latest BIOS. Now my vCore is 1.188v when viewing in the BIOS. A massive drop.
So far all tests run without error with 21C at idle and < 45C with Prime95 v27.9.
