Lightbulb [Info] CPU-Z Voltage

Listen up! I've been saying for quite a while now and JJ from Asus himself just confirmed that CPU-Z does NOT report your CPU voltage usage the way you think it does.

If we ask what voltage is running through your CPU in a heat or stability related incident we need to know what your bios is set to. Absolutely do not rely on software to report voltages to your components except the GPU (MSI Afterburner, GPU-Z, eVGA Precision).

Skip to 45:45 or use their content list for the "overclocking" section.

Seen way too many instances even in the last idk 2 months or so with people relying on software for voltages.
