i5 6600k 4.7ghz OC ~1.45v

I am currently running my i5 6600k at 4.7ghz at around 1.45 volts.

Is this a safe voltage?
I am running a MSI z170 Gaming M7 mobo with updated and current BIOS.
I am using their easy OC options in the BIOS.
I have no stability issues but I am wondering if this voltage is safe for my PC.

  1. wouldnt go over 1.4 tbh
  2. What are your temps?
  3. 1.45v sounds a bit too high to me. I don't think I'd push much more than 1.35v myself. What kind of temps are you getting anyway?

    I am currently maxing anywhere between 60-70 C on all cores. I have a X61 that i have set to be running louder and faster than normal to keep it cool.

    CAM shows normal idle temps to be in the low to mid 20s and when I play anything afterburner doesnt normally show anything more than 65C.

    It's the voltage that is going to reduce your CPU life. Try to dial down voltage and see if you can get lower voltage and still maintain stability.

    Managed to get it down to 1.41. Ill try to get it lower as I get more used to OCing stuff. Thanks to everyone for the help.
