So when I open cpu z it says im at around .958v or so, it constantly changes slightly. When I run a stress test while cpu z is open the voltage increases to slightly below 1.4 so I have to find a way to lower the v. I'm assuming I have to do it through the Motherboard but I'm not sure how. Is there a way to lower V using software?

So I started poking around in the motherboard. I found the Voltage with the offset +/- I tried several times setting it to different Voltages and X multiplyers... I set the overclock to x38 from the Motherboard and lowered the V by .05, it seemed a little cooler. for the heck of it I set it to x35 with a - .05 and it ended up crashing a Blue Screening. I'm assuming this is because at that x Ratio the voltage was already so low that by increasing it further there was not enough power? Next I set the Ratio to 42 which is kinda where I'd like my CPU to be... at x42 my i72600k is boosting to 4333mhz I tired setting the voltage to -.05 which was fine, but it still ran hot... so I tried -.08 -.09 and - .1 when I got to -1 it booted but when I ran a stress test it crashed so I assume once again that the is too low of voltage for the CPU? I have the Cpu set now to 42x with an offset of -.085 but it still runs way to hot... I'm idling at 39-44c on all the cores and my V is idling at .888 - .988 when I ran a stress test my V peaked at 1.344 and my cpu temps peaked at about 96C ... I'm not sure why I can't overclock my CPU without getting stupid temps.

Here's a screen shot of open hardware monitor, this is after I stopped the stress test. The stress test only ran for about 2 minutes because I didn't want the cpu cores to get any hotter... I'ts strange how the 1 cpu core stayed at 88C

Thoso temps seem scary but when it comes to real world practice like playing games they don't seem to get that high. It may be dependant on the game but playing Ark Survival, I'm only seeing temps of around 65C which I'm happy with

Anyone else have any Ideas as to why my processor runs so hot. Thank you.

Do you have a specific application that needs to run at that high of a frequency? I know I wouldn't be comfortable running into those temps.
