Opinions? Are these voltages "ok" at these temps? (i5 4690k and Hyper 212 evo)

Hi everyone,

My question is related to voltage and temps.

CPU: i5-4690k
Multiplier: 45x
VID is set at 1.310V
LLC is Auto (tried turbo and same results with VCORE)
VCORE fluctuates (i am using adaptive) to a high of 1.332V
Stress test: RoG Realbench
Max Temps: 77*C at peak but it usually hangs around 70 under stress.

These are my lowest stable settings at 4.5GHz, so I'm trying to figure out if this is a solid setup or not.

Most Haswell guides say that 1.320V and higher are not safe, or that liquid cooling would be necessary. Yet under stress my Hyper 212 Evo (and a number of other good case fans) keep it under 80*C.

Is it safe to keep running an i5 4690k at 1.332V if the temps don't go too high? Or would it be better to run at a lower setting?

I have an easier setting at 4.4GHz with 1.265 VID that maxes VCORE at 1.284 under stress test load (RoG Realbench) that I can use, but I notice some nice improvements in gameplay at 4.5GHz, so I'd like some advice from this community.

Thanks in advance,

( Caveat: I *know* I bought a budget cooler. I would prefer not to discuss better coolers. I have an idea what I'll build next time, if and when I do. Either way, I anticipate the needed VCORE will be similar if not the same even with a better cooler. )

As long as you can keep it under 80c i'd say your good. it is a bit warm but you already acknowledge you got a budget option cooler. If you sit around 70c gaming and such i'd say your good. if you want adjust your cpu fan profile to go faster at the higher temps to keep it cooler but i'd say your good. my 6700k sits around 70c at max load at 1.34v and 4.5ghz granted this is skylake but i think its totally fine still. 80c and up is what i classify as the danger are personally.

Thanks for the advice.

I was looking at my bios settings, and though I was adjusting all the VID's and Multipliers, there was still one setting that said " Auto" and I switched it to Manual, and that seems to have cooled it off a bit. I'm running 1.3VID and it's swinging up to 1.32VCORE and a bit cooler.

About cpu fan profile, I tried to set something up with Sys Fan but it was extremely confusing and I couldn't get it to run quite right. So I just have my CPU fan and one CPU OPT fan (actually on the back of the box) at 1.50/*C so when it gets to 70*C they are a little under 100% at that point.

Are there any other programs that are more friendly to use? I like how Afterburner lets me set a fan graph, but I haven't found anything quite so helpful for the CPU.

Aside from doing the bios fan curves the only decent program i know about really is SpeedFan. its not the best in terms of format and design but it is decently simple once you know what everything means. JayzTwoCents did a video on how to set up fan curves with it recently so i'd check out his video. Hope this helps.
