Massive overvoltage on new cpu

So, today I got a new cpu (ryzen 5 2600) and installed it pretty easily. As soon as I turned my pc on I saw an American Megatrends screen saying I've changed my cpu and that the voltage is too high. (Runs at 2.4-2.8V)

 

Any ideas how to fix this, lmk.

 

Image: (the 15V, 3.3V and the other one are all red and above regular voltage aswell)

Remove the CMOS battery and reset the BIOS, see if that fixes it. 

Thanks for the reply, I've already these things multiple times. Unless I did it wrong. CMOS is the battery in between of the IO and CPU right?

It'll be a silver (button cell style) battery about 2cm in diameter. I'm sure you've done it right but just to check, did you remove the battery, turn off your power supply hold the power on button on your case and then leave the battery remove for 10-20 minutes before re installing? 

 

Assuming you have done it correctly, its possible your power supply is causing the issues. Do you have another one that you could install and test with?

I've tried a different power supply and I've left the battery out for like 20-30 minutes, and yes I unplugged the power plug from the pc itself

Forgot to say, I have gotten multiple bluescreens with codes being:

 

MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

POOL_CORRUPTION_IN_FILE_AREA

Interesting, will your motherboard allow you to manually underclock your cpu?

I'm not sure if thats even possible, I have an ASUS PRIME A320M-K. I can't find any videos on how to and I think you mean undervolting since the clock is regular

Sorry yes that's what I meant, and that kind of makes sense as you cant overclock on it so no reason to be able to control voltages. I assume you're on the latest BIOS?

Yes I have updated my BIOS twice, tried with 1 ram stick and a lot more

I let my computer sit without power cable for the night, still no luck.

i think i just need to get a whole new motherboard since i probably broke some stuff since i didnt have any anti static stuff or discharged myself, and was using magnetic screwdrivers if that matters. the cpu itself is not the problem, not the psu, not the ram. all that is left is the motherboard itself.

 

i was thinking of getting a Gigabyte GA-A320M-H since im rlly broke rn

what psu? Usuallu 5V and 3.3V and 12V voltagaes are handled by the psu and cpu voltage by the motherboard.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

I tried a different PSU, but I found out the voltage regulators are broken. I'm just gonna get a new motherboard since thats easiest
