I recently built a computer after saving up for about 6 months and I thought I would dive into overclocking.
My CPU is the Ryzen 7 1700
Mobo is Asus Rog Strix x370-f gaming
When I went to overclock, I set a D.O.C.P that set my APU at 102.2 and my RAM at 1.35v and the ram at 2933 mhz.
I then set my cpu multiplier at 36 and my voltage at 1.2250 which I ran on prime 95 for about 3 hrs, no errors so far.
However, when I look at HW Monitor and CPU-Z my vcore is a mere ~0.6v at max load, my VID is around me set 1.225v, and the VDD (Node 0) says that my max was 3.15 volts!
I have no clue what is happening and how my voltage is either really high, or really low. I have updated all my drivers and the BIOS but still, no avail.
Additionally, in the bios, it never seems to show the voltage that I actually set (1.225) it always shows a little more.
Any help would be greatly appreciated because I do not want to destroy my computer and I want to get the most longevity as possible. Thanks!
