Question regarding i7 4790k manual voltage

I have an I7 4790k overclocked to 4.6Mhz@ 1.180v ran Aida 64 for 15 minutes no problems.
My question is. since my motherboard (Asus h97 pro gamer) doesn't have adaptive or offset voltage am i ok to leave it on manual voltage all the time or is this going to cause problems? idle temps are 29-32c. under full load aida 64= 67c.
thanks in advance

    manual is fine

    4.6ghz @ 1.18v is really REALLY good!

    Mine needs 1.26v for the same clock speed

    I'd recommend benching it longer than 15 mins though

    My initial tests for a stable overclock are 1 hour CPU benching, 10 runs of 3dmark, 4 hours gaming (4 games, 1 hour each)

  2. Ok, so i ran Aida 64 for 40 minutes this time and it didn't crash. Played Arma 3 for a few hours worked fine. Ran Cinebench like 20 times and 3dmark. So if i keep it at 1.180 or if i want to overclock further and end up at lets say 1.290v, will that be fine if it stays there constantly never ramping down?
    Also i increased the cache to 41 on lowest and highest while running these tests. Lowest temp was 27c and highest was 68c.
    Cheers

  3. yup, as long as temps are good and your staying below 1.35v, then it's fine
