Voltage for i5 4670k

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My first attempts at overclocking and its been trial and error but I seem to be able to run 4200 mhz stable @ 1.12V @ 73C stressed. Isn't this voltage extremely low for this overclock? I'm asking this because ive seen others throw numbers around 1.2 or even much higher ( although they overclocked a bit higher like 4500 or 4600mhz ).

I know low voltage is better as it reduces heat but does a lower voltage also mean your CPU will last longer? Hopefully someone who knows more about this subject can clarify this up for me. Thanks.

Lower voltage and low heat both equally extend a processors life. Haswell does have a heating issue even at lower volts, which can only be amended by delidding and replacing the TIM.

I always have believed that heat is what kills a processor more than volts. Haven't you tried going any higher?
