So I just picked up a i5-3570k that I am using with a Gigabyte Z77-DS3H. I am not overclocked or anything like that, but I noticed that my vcore hits 1.361 under full load and 1.224v idle. From what I have read this seems pretty high to me. Should I be concerned about this or is this acceptable with an Ivy Bridge processor?
U guys never answered this. Cpu-z reports a 1.200v at 100% load and 1.265 at idle load when the cpu is at 1.6ghz. After reading few thing about the cpu it seems that 1.185 is optimal for 4.0 and right now this is not even overclocked.
