    i7-4790K pulling 1,3+V with Auto settings

      Hello,

      my i7-4790K processor shows excessive voltage utilization with consequent overheating (1,32V, 100°C within seconds running AIDA64 stress test, with aftermarket air cooler, Hyper 212EVO by Cooler Master).

       

      This must qualify for a substitution. I read in other threads that these are to be considered faulty CPU's, although they may pass the tests with Intel utilities.

      Normal voltage request from the processor should be 1,2-1,22 V.
