So I had CPU-Z and Core Temp open and I just realised both show different voltages. I have a 6600K @4.6Ghz and CPU-Z says it is running at 1.392V at full load (was advised to stay under 1.4V), however the VID in Core Temp is ~1.275V +-0.025V as it fluctuates.

I havent been able to find a thread or a page that has stated it in a reasonable way and just told me because I have the Thermal overhead (Max 73C and it needs a dust out) to overclock more but I don't want to kill my CPU with too higher voltages.

Which one of these readings should I go by and do I really have the voltage overhead to OC more?

Thanks for any help in advance.

VID is not your core voltage. I would consider you at the maximum overclock for your CPU. I agree with the previous advice you got, going above 1.4V is a bad idea.

VID is what your CPU is asking for and core voltage is what it is currently getting.
