Ok so im running my i7 860 on my MSI p55-GD80 board and im trying to OC it at 3.8 ghz right now.

Im running into a weird problem. At no load, its running at 1.376 V according to CPU-Z. Temps in the mid to high 30s.

As soon as I put any load onto it the voltage drops to 1.280 according to CPU-Z. Temperatures around low 70s.

My BIOS looks exactly like this

But on CPU Volt its 1.4
CPU VTT 1.35
and PCH 1.05 is at Auto.

Other settings
