That's your CPU Input Voltage, not your vCore, what does HWMonitor show?

Can you post the whole window, not just the snippet, please?

On the motherboard voltages, CPU VCORE is what you want to watch for your CPU core voltage. What heatsink are you using?
Does your BIOS on the MSI B85M-G43 have overclocking options for the G3258?

Heatsink you mean a cpu cooler? :/ (SilentumPC Fera 2).
I don't know i must check BIOS if it's important.

@Edit
Ok now i'm in bios, in OC section CPU ratio is on auto and i can't change it.
BIOS Version E7823IMS V3.9

Does pressing + or - allow you to change from Auto on the CPU Ratio?

Also, this is a forum, not a chat support for a manufacturer.
Please give us time to reply (typically we say ~24hrs) before bumping again.

+ and - gives nothing, i try everything but still nothing, maybe it's problem with bios version?

Now you test. Use something like Intel XTU (a stress test) to test the overclock stability.
Start by upping the multiplier and then testing.
If it passes, up the multiplier again.
If it fails, up the vCore and test again.
Go until your temps are approaching 85°C or vCore is approaching 1.4V.

I personally would not push more than 1.3 volts vcore for a daily overclock on the devil's canyon platform chips.

I ran my [email protected] with no problem (Water cooled and de-lidded, so no temp issue with a 75c on max load on the hotter core).

I think would not push to 1.4 for daily use, but I would not worry up to 1.35v with Haswell.

Okey guys, i think i made it, 4,4 GHz, 1,225 V on stress with 76C, temp is good or i should change it to 4,2 GHz?

Looks good to me, now you need to test it for a few hours to make sure you're actually stable.

I don't mean to hijack but my vcore shows 1.760 in HWMonitor but CPU-Z says core voltage is at 1.198. Maybe my board isn't supported? Running prime95 for 2 hours with no issues. Any ideas?

Its under VCORE. I'm running an Asus Z87-A. Under the G3258 section of HWMonitor it shows a VID of 1.198
