i5-2500K vcore Voltage seems way to high on stock settings, it shows 2.220v

Hi, I need a little help here, so i decided to Overclock my 5 year old i5-2500K ,my problem is i noticed that in my Bios and on cpu monitoring software like CPUID HWMonitor and Cpu-Z that its saying my Core Voltage is 2.220v how is that possible, shouldn't it be lower? My Mobo is on stock settings, no overclocking. I run Prime95 for awhile stable, the cpu temps stayed around 60c. Anyone know why i would be getting these vcore readings? My Mobo is Gigabyte Z68AP-D3 ,Thank You, waiting on your replies

  1. Can't be - that would blow it right off the board, a good OC target would have it set at 1.35.

    In the BIOS from hardware monitoring section, it will provide that information.
