    Hi,
    I have no idea what a safe voltage might be on your platform
    Just shared something I noticed on new bios for my x99 board which doesn't need anywhere near what auto voltage produces

    x299 is pretty much the same on it's input voltage and system agent voltage over zapping
    I haven't noticed it zapping vccio as high though seems docile compared to your platform and x99 for sure

    Some CPU need that much voltage for the frequencies users wish to run. 1.3v on this platform is fine, and there's no real-world evidence to suggest otherwise nor is it anywhere near enough to kill a CPU. If you wish to tune manually, then the facilities are there for you to do so.

    All I know is my x99 and 5930k was quite happy at 3200C14 4x8gb kit with vccio cpu 1.05v voltage at +- at that amount for years on 2101 bios

    Any bios past 2101 for broadwell-e jolts vccio cpu 1.05 voltage to 1.25v darn near the core voltage for 4.3 takes

    Why, well it wouldn't be first time auto voltage didn't zap more than needed into the system if you had vccin/ input voltage you'd know what I mean lol on auto might produce 1.2v into a system and system agent as well just for the sake of brute force.

    Lastly use hwinfo not hwmonitor.

    https://www.hwinfo.com/download.php

    Different platforms and CPU have different voltage requirements, that's what manual tuning is for. Moreover, best not to cross-reference platforms in that way, as it ends up confusing people.
