CPU voltage control may be available within your BIOS setup program, or by moving jumpers or switches on the motherboard. Voltage adjustments may be in increments of 0.025, 0.05, or 0.1 volts, depending on design.

With the CPU voltage being too high, the extra heat will soon kill it if you continue to run it as it is.
