Are you referring to cpu speed? If so, what exact utility are you using to see the speed of the processor?
Next all modern processors downclock to a slower speed when max speed is not needed. Right now my system shows cpu speed as 2200 even though it is overclocked to 3900. When stressing the system, does your speed go up to rated speed?

Its a notification that comes up saying cpu core is at 2.o4v so i guess its the power going through the cpu core.

2.04V is way above normal vcore.
Go into the bios and check your cpu voltage or vcore. Read your manual as to bios options/menus. Each bios [and often each bios update] has different menus so giving you detailed instructions is impossible.

I would tend to think the p0pup is in error since 2.04V is way above normal vcore for a 7700.

If that reading of vcore was in the bios, then do not worry about the popup.
Speedfan was a decent program in it's day however that day has long passed. Just as an example, speedfan shows your 12V rail @6.65V; that is not possible. The system would not POST. Any other reading is equally suspect.
Most motherboard mfg have purpose designed software for monitoring; use that. If you cannot find anything, use hwinfo64. A much better option than speedfan.

Press "Del" when the ASUS logo appears on the screen to enter the BIOS. There should be a setting for defaults. I have heard some times automatic advanced settings will raise the CPU voltage too high. From what I have read 1.4v is about max you want to run it. 2.04V if that is a correct reading is way too high. You can download CPUID and run it here to look at reading. https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

You are correct in that Auto overclocking raises vcore too high. This is why I always advocate setting ALL parameters manually [including vcore] in the bios.
Just as an example, this Asus ROG board set vcore @1.47V when I clicked the Auto OC. Currently running @1.32V and overclocked to 3.9gig.

Those readings are fine. This looks like a pre-built system using an asus board. I looked on the support site and I do not see any monitoring software.
I would not worry about the popup. You could run something like prime95 or OCCT [both free downloads] Monitor vcore while running either of those. That will show you how high vcore can go. If it stays at something like 1.3V or so, it is fine.
