1800x voltages during XFR

I have a non-overclocked 1800x and I'm seeing some really high core voltages that I'm concerned about. Under high load, the core voltage regulates down to a reasonable ~1.28 or so. But under light load when XFR kicks in, I'm seeing voltages as high as 1.525 (see the highlighted row below).

Since AMD does not recommend voltages that high for the chip, I am concerned that this spiking is too high; my CPU spends more time idle than it does under heavy load, so the chip is spending more time under heavy voltages.

Is this normal or is something wrong here?
