Can't undervolt i7 13700K

Hello, my i7 13700k runs pretty hot(under full load 100 degrees) so i want to undervolt it. The problem is, the voltage offset in XTU grayed out preventing me from making any changes. Any idea why and how can i bring the voltage of my processor down? i cant understand why i cant do this in an unlcocked processor. it is not unlocked at all.

 

idk if its important but, my paste is Arctic mx4 and my AIO is corsair H100i. my gpu is Strix RTX 3090 OC, Ram is 32(16x2) Corsair Vengeance RGB my motherboard is ROG Strix B660-G wifi.

 

Every bit of help is appreciated, thank you.

Update your bios, and check your bios to see if it is disabled.

Ensure "Undervolt protection" is disabled in bios.

Since downloading the the latest version (was on an old version) if I disable undervolt protection intel XTU will not load.

If I enable undervolt protection XTU will load but its useless as obviously, I cannot undervolt.

I did have my undervolt protection setting on AUTO, this also prevents XTU from loading.

Only change for me was XTU.  No BIOS changes were made.

Will probably end up using an old version.  Wish I had a note of the version I was using!

Latest version will not work if you disable undervolt protection.
