Hello,

I recently overclocked my I5 to 4.2ghz (Using the auto OC on my mobo) and seems to be running fine but.. whenever i changed it seemed to automatically change my voltage to 1.24v (Under load)

I can't find anywhere in my mobo where to set the voltage manually :\... whenever i change the clock speed it sets everything else..

This is my mobo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...0446076&PID=3821802&SID=iqblly23hz000a1700053


My temps are about 58c - 62c when playing doom and 68c - 74c (hottest core) when using prime95

SPECS -

I5 3570k
Gtx 1070
8GB DDR3 1600mhz
Corsair 750m PSU

I wanted to know if this was a safe voltage for this clock speed.. or if there was some sort of program i can use to lower it manually.. thanks

1.24V is fine for that CPU... up to 1.4V is really (so long as temps are in order - yours are).

Crappy Intel mobo man... not really made to overclock. You can try to see if there is an updated BIOS at the INtel website for the board... perhaps that will unlock something?

Ik :\ i mean at least it gave me a decent voltage right xD? thanks for replying, i just wanted to make sure that 1.24v wasn't too high for the clock speed.

1.24v voltage is fine the board picked a good voltage. What Vcore voltage to you have with Prime95?
