Ryzen 5 3600 high voltage?

Go to solution Solved by YoungBlade,

Those voltages are totally normal for Ryzen. If you aren't thermal or power limited, Ryzen will use up to 1.5V for short bursts. Voltages in the 1.4-1.45V range are typical when the CPU is boosting. And yes, for a heavy workload, when not thermally constrained, you can see voltages around 1.35V very easily, although it will depend on the instruction sets being used and what frequency all the cores are running at.

Running Prime95, I get high voltage, but temp never exceeds 67C.

Or that's a OK voltage since Prime95 is really stressing the CPU and normally that wouldn't happen?

Could it be that the cooler is good and then Prime95 is pushing it even more because no thermal throttling?
