CPU VCORE won't lower after playing the game, cpu is not overclocked

Hello professionals!

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,

i7-950 3.07ghz
zalman 9900max
asus rampage 3 formula
corsair xms3 6x2gb
cm silent pro 1200w
gtx 580 phantom

Please help.

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