Hello all, I'm new here, and I got my second gaming rig set up, I'll list some basic parts below. Anywho, at the moment, I'm running at 4.5GHz with 1.248 volts(an offset, which I don't remember), and a 65C load temp, 18 hours prime95 stable. What bothers me slightly, is the voltage, it seems just a bit high for a 24/7 voltage, I'd like the computer to last, I know that overclocking does shorten the lifespan, but I'd like to keep it somewhat long. Have a nice day, and leave any suggestions or comments below. =)

P.S. I had it at 4.2GHz, and it was at 1.125ish which is why the much higher voltage bothers me.

1.248V is absolutely fine, and as long as you have Speed Step enabled, it won't be at that all the time.
