Or am i mistaken and i should lower my vCore?
Temperatures don't mean everything. Your putting a lot of stress on your CPU when you pump more electricity through it. 1.5V should be on water.
1.5V will shorten your CPU's lifespan. Lets look at the P4 Northwood as an example. They overclocked like monsters, when people with water pushed it to 1.7V, it died instantly. Just read around, and think of your CPU before pushing out that last mhz.
