Bios voltage or actual voltage?

When a CPU says max voltage of 1.4 does that mean you can set the BOIS to 1.4? I ask this because if i set bios to 1.4 my core voltage ranges between 1.43 and 1.5 (depends on load.) Is this normal for mother boards to do this with voltage? Should I set voltage to 1.35 to keep max voltage under 1.4? My xfx 750 am2+ defaults to 1.4 which give actual core voltages of 1.43 to 1.5? Any thoughts, opinions, or explination would be great.

I think what you're setting in your BIOS is your CPU voltage. What are you using to detect the actualy CPU voltage as you use your computer?

Ok that is what I thought, I just wanted to hear from someone else to make sure. I read alot about undervolting and not much about motherboards overvolting. Thanks
