Welcome! How about listing more specs... board, memory, gpu, cooler, etc...

As far as what we see. Voltage is fine (stay under 1.4) assuming temps are fine (under 90c load) while stress testing.

Hi i have asus H97M-E with 24 gbs of ddr3 ram at 2133 mhz and a msi gtx 1070 haming x. Stress testing 46 degreee C at max with a Hyper D92. The vcore is alright at 1.222 or it should be lower for 4.3 ghz?
Thanks!

and my cpu is staying between 4.1-4.3 ghz at almost 0 cpu usage (ilde) is it normal?

vcore of 1.222 is quite safe and you have room for even more. Anything under about 1.4 is okay. "Automatic" overclocking wizards usually assign excessive voltage and lower memory frequency. They usually do not give an optimum overclock. Your wizard seems to be doing better than most but you really should commit to learning how to overclock by tweaking manual settings in bios. That's the best way.

4.5 should be a nice easy oc on that chip and it provides nice FPS should be similar to a 7600k
