Ryzen 5 2600x Stock voltage high?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Currently setting up a new pc for a friend and I've noticed that the stock voltage is going between 1.398 - 1.426v, nothing has been changed in bios.

This seems too high for me?

Specs are:

MSI B450M

Ryzen 5 2600x + stock cooler.

 

 

 


Core i5 6600K 4.7GHZ

16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4

CM Seidon 120V2

EVGA 650W G2 80+ Gold

MSI Krait Gaming Z170

1TB SSD (soon to be NVME m.2 SSD)

EVGA SC GTX1060

 

Qpad Pro Mech Gaming Keyboard

AOC 144hz Monitor

Logitech G900 

Hyper x Cloud II

Not a ryzen guy.

But the voltages seem too high for any cpu.

Can you try updating the bios if there is an update available


HI, if you liked what i said then please like

Just updated the bios and still the same, I've set a Voltage offset of -0.200v until I can find out if the stock voltage is too high

Those voltages are fine, but you can likely set a negative offset to reduce them in the name of efficiency.  And I'd imagine you can go greater than -0.200V.

is it under load? because for some reason ryzen has high voltage when idle but it wont damage the cpu if its not underload you can adjust it in the bios

The voltage is fine. It will boost up usually to 1.45v. Ryzen is safe up to 1.5v.

By the way, the 1.45 - 1.5 is for very short bursts (when it boosts for a split second), i would say anything sustained over 1.425 is approaching unsafe territory.

Thank you to everyone for your replies. 

 

I've left it on a - Voltage Offset, left Aida64 running for a few hours and all stable.
