Hey guys, my name is Jerry and this will be my first thread here. I just bought an Ivy bridge 3570k and was looking to OC. I know that most people say that 1.4V is max before damaging the chip and that's why I'm here. I also bought a ga-z77x-ud3h and I went into bios under the instructions of a OC guide to do a respectful bump. I set my turbo's to 45 and left every thing else on auto. Well when I loaded windows 7 and ran prime95 the cpu-z displayed that the Voltage jumped WAY up to 1.45v. I freaked and went to close but before I could I got the blue screen. Anyways my question is should I be concerned about the longevity of the chip now. Is there a good chance it will die after a month or so. Sorry if this is a noob question but I am a noob when it comes to these things. The system is running fine now at 4.2 @1.26v. Thanks.
