I've been using the 2700x processor for about a year now. All of a sudden it wouldn't boot into windows with an error message saying Over Voltage Error! So checking in BIOS the voltage was reading 1.624v. Never been this high before and surely too high for idle?
The CPU had some moderate overclocking so i reverted it back to factory defaults... No change to Core volt.
Tried to manually lower the voltage but it wouldn't change the voltage. Changing it from AUTO to MANUAL and trying a negative Offset both didn't work.
Re-seated all hardware on motherboard and even cleared the CMOS, updated BIOS to the latest version still to no avail. The only way to boot into Windows is to turn off monitoring of the Core Voltage in BIOS. PSU Issue possibly??
PC works fine, just cant see it lasting long sitting at 1.6v constantly!
