Hey guys. I recently got my new mobo and the monitoring software that came with it as well as cpu-z are telling me that my cpu is at 1.71 V...... It is suppost to run at 1.65V ...
This seems high to me...Im not really OCed at all. from 2.17 - 2.20 but even when stock speed it still has the high voltage ...And no i have never changed it and the only options i have to change it are to increase not decrease...

is this too high? What should i do about this..?

Its only too high if its too hot. Voltage itself does not harm cpu's, its the heat from the extra voltage that does. Its really not abnormal for a motherboard to overvolt a little, especially on boards like Abit, and others that allow overvolt by percentage instead of solid Vcore settings.
