Solved

I used My ASUS Deluxe Motherboard to auto overclock my i7 6700k, and i need help. Is it running it at safe levels?

I have an EvO 212 cooler and im getting these temps at these voltages?

So about 25-30 cool and around 60 to 70 while in load. Is this ok.
I also saw it is running it at about 1.38v while in load? is that bad or is it just the temps that matter?
Im kinda new to this so thats for the help!

  1. If by " while in load" you mean 100% load , then 70 degrees is more than perfect :).

    The voltage is kinda high for that overclock. Not dangerously, but you could do better by just doing a manual OC. That would lower the temps, too. Your temps are fine, but at that voltage, 4.7 should be within the realm of possibility. Possibly not, as well, but most I've seen can do 4.7 at 1.4V or a little less.

    Basically, just read up on manual overclocking and try that. I personally use adaptive voltage for my OC on my 6600K, but you could also do offset to achieve roughly the same results. Meaning volts and speed will actually drop at idle, which is really what you want.

    Thanks, But my question is if it is hurting my cpu?
