i7 6700K Skylake and Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7

hello i am very confused about the cpu and mother board in question, i can provide screen shots on what is being asked. i have been in contact with gigabyte themselves, as you will see my cpu is being over voltage at 1.616v was 1.8+v i have done what gigabyte suggested and voltage is still over what it should be, so do i have a defected cpu or mother board, i am very worried about this as its a new set up and would to return products if faulty.

Hi,

According to the pictures posted the processor is over clocked to 4.2GHz. The 4 Cores are running at maximum speed; when processor runs faster the voltage will increase, this is a normal process.

The Base Frequency of Intel® Core™ i7-6700K is 4.0GHz.

Intel® Core™ i7-6700K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.20 GHz)
