No voltage settings on XTU for the 2700K?

So I was thinking of messing around with my CPU voltages (mainly thinking of undervolting a bit) but when I fired up Intel XTU, there were no options for adjusting core VID. (Screenshot attached)

 

I also tried throttlestop and couldn't find any voltage adjustment settings either.

 

Am I doing something wrong?

OS: Windows 10 Pro

CPU: i7-2700K

GPU: GTX 1080

MOBO: Gigabyte Z77N-WIFI

RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR3-1866

are you seriously using Intel software on AMD hardware?

 

and you overclock in the BIOS, never use software to overclock

Maybe Sandy Bridge + Z77N are too old for voltage changing?

I tried to do it in the bios as well but all I could find was the clock multiplier and no voltage adjustment options. For some reason, the voltage options are just not showing with any software and even the BIOS. It's really weird.

FIVR voltage control did not exist until the 4th Gen CPUs were released so you will not be able to use Intel XTU or ThrottleStop for voltage control.

 

Gigabyte used to hide the advanced bios settings.  Try pressing CTRL+F1 in the bios and see if any new menus become available.
