CPU Voltage

Dear community,

Since changing my power supply (from 850W to 750W), I have noticed that my CPU volts in the BIOS have risen to 1,465V, before it was about 1,288V. On desktop, the volts average around 0.9-1.0V, but when I'm gaming, the average is 1,450V and the maximum is 1.5V.

As you can see from the screenshot, I haven't adjusted or overclocked anything. Is that problematic, like it is with me or ok?

My processor is an: Intel Core i7-13700KFimage0.jpeg

Hello maestro 


Thank you for posting on the Intel Communities.


The Operating Voltage for the 13th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors will be up to a maximum of 1.72V, in this case, it is ok if the voltages are going around 1.2V to 1.5V.


I would advise you to reset your motherboard settings to defaults and visit your manufacturer's website to update your Bios to the latest version if not yet updated to get the most optimal management ad performance from your motherboard.


Best Regards,
