A VCore that high is not healthy. Hell I think the last CPU to need 2V was a Pentium. Try setting the VCore to the spec that is for your CPU. Probably 1.2-1.3v. That high, even though the temps are not too bad, could still cause some major damage to a CPU. outlw6669 a b à CPUs December 10, 2009 8:53:32 AM Welcome to the forums! Yes, your vCore is dangerously high. Leaving it there will damage your CPU. Set the vCore to Auto as soon as possible.

I had a MSI board do what is happening to you. Turn out it was a false reading. EXT64 a b à CPUs December 11, 2009 12:27:50 PM Honestly, I don't think the CPU would last a second at that voltage. I think it is a false reading, but that doesn't give me much confidence in the quality of the board. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
