2600x vcore 1.5 volts HELP!

I just recently switch from Intel and bought a Ryzen 2600x and Gigabyte x470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING for streaming and editing.


When I installed Ryzen Master I noticed that my vcore voltage is jumping from 0.7 to 1.45 and sometimes higher like 1.5 volts. (in CPU Z the voltage is always 0.2 or 0.3 volts higher though).

Tried to adjust this in bios but you can't really do much in this bios. So i left it at stock.


I did a bios update and now it seems to jump only up to 1.45. When I open the bios sometimes it still jumps up to 1.5 while in bios but when I'm in windows it doesn't do that.


The interesting thing is when I stress test with prime 95 the voltage stays at 1.35 all the time in ryzen master (in CPU Z 1.38).


I can adjust voltage on Ryzen master to 1.3 but then it just stays at that and doesn't decrease. (cpu z 1.32). After restarting the PC it's back to standard settings.


My questions are:

Is this voltage damaging the CPU?

How can I set the voltage so it would decrease when not needed and increase to 1.3 under load?

I read something about XFR increasing voltage for a brief moment is that it? A lot of people seem to have this voltage issue.

Is it bad to run the system at 1.3 volts all the time?


Thanks for all the help in advance!
