I recently bought an intel i5-4670k with a msi z87-g45 mobo with a corsair h110.
I have tried to overclock and stress test but in need of help.
First off, I have tried to pull my cpu frequeny to 4.0Ghz with auto voltage.
When I stress test this I get to a voltage point of 1.39V maximum at full load.
The temperature doesn't seem to dangerous but from what I read, that is a very high voltage.
Also, I tried stress testing it at 3.4GHz with cpu voltage as auto but voltage still strikes up to around 1.26V.
So I have two questions:
1. Is it OK to use "auto" for cpu voltage?
2. is my CPU faulty at all? Because it requires a high voltage to keep it stable at 3.4GHz.
Also, when I monitor my Vcore, it sometimes suddenly spikes up to 2.04V for a very very short time. Nothing happens, but is this normal?
