CPU VCORE won't lower after playing the game, cpu is not overclocked
After playing medieval 2 total war my i7-950 VCORE reading in CPUID hardware monitor is 1.26v, and it won't lower until i restart PC. Consequently the CPU temperatures hover between 43-48c idle. Before i start this particular game CPU VCORE is 0.94 always, but this does not happen after I play BF3 or MW3,

Check all running processes and services before and after playing that game. perhaps one isn't shutting off properly; that would be my guess.
