I have an 8700k with an nh d15 @ 4.7 GHz at 1.25 vcore and im not really sure what these chips need for 4.7 ghz so if anyone could give me an idea i don't need anything higher than 4.7 anyway my board gave it 1.4 volts auto and i lowered it to 1.25 and its stable and in time spy extreme cpu test i get a max load temp of about 85c in normal gaming about only 70 to 75 c

i have not tried lower than 1.25 volts yet and its hot here ambient around 80 degrees in my room

so if anyone could give me any advice on volts and acceptable temps or if I am okay already it would be appreciated

90c max, 1.35v max. Go down till it's unstable in 0.01v increments then back up to the last stable setting. But 1.25 @ 4.7 sounds about right, I'd still go down until you find instability since you're still running a little hot. Though most of that is from the crap compound under the ihs.
