CPU-Z isn't very keen on reporting the voltages for the Prime correctly. It's definitely set to 1.3v in the BIOS for our 5.2 GHz overclocking efforts, although as you'll see in a moment there is a possibility that CPU-Z is accurate and the BIOS is faffing us about. Given that the VRM temperatures don't appear in either the BIOS or HWMonitor we had to go a little bit cautiously in our overclocking efforts. Still, 5.2 GHz it says which matches what we've achieved so far.
