high temps wrong vcore

Have you tried to set the Vcore to Auto or to the spec for the CPU? 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.

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.
What Vcore is too high if your Temps are good?

The voltage should be between 0.65-1.400ºC.

vCore was already in auto, i have tried setting vcore manually
but BIOS vCore is still in 2.144v

CMOS cleared, BIOS updates.. no results
should i send CPU+Board to RMA?
Note. My system is working fine, Prime 95 for like 4 Hours and No BSODs, No errors, Max temp 85C

Change the bios version forward or backward.
I had a MSI board do what is happening to you.
Turn out it was a false reading.

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.
