Constant high voltage with 3700x

Seemingly max voltage is being constantly pushed to my 3700x (fluctuates between 1.42 and 1.45V) at idle. I installed latest amd chipset drivers and regardless of power profile, nothing changes. Changing max processor state to 99% of course drops it down but that isn't a solution to the problem.

I checked ryzen master and hwinfo which both show this. CPU-Z also does as does my bios (Asrock x570 Taichi).

PBO doesn't change anything and so I ended up undervolting to 1.2V in ryzen master for now with 4.1ghz all cores (and of course it sits on 1.2V 24/7

I've seen many reports with this back in 2019 which was supposedly fixed by chipset updates but I'm on latest chipset and latest stable w10 build (2004) and the problems back. Any ideas?

Re: Constant high voltage with 3700x

Found that problem: Windows Search Indexing is going haywire. Using a constant 8-9% CPU usage. Pausing indexing had voltage/core speeds drop back to normal and so the temps also dropped from 60C down to 35-40C at idle, thanks microsoft
