To high? I7-2600K reaching 1,59 Volts at 4,7 GHz on auto mode

Hello Community,

inspired by some News and Videos of comparisons between the 2600K and new Models i decided to overclock my CPU too since the FPS Boosts can be really high. 
I looked into the Spredsheet on this Forum with multiple Users having the 2600K overclocking to 4,7 GHz and about 1.38 Volts.

At first i only changed Clockspeed to 4,7 GHz and i let the Mainboard adapt the Voltage what resulteted into 1,59 Volts in a Prime95 Benchmark at a max of 76°C on one Core

After that i reduced the Clock speed to 4,6 GHz and 1,4 Volts since anything lower then 1,385 Volts dont even let the PC boot.

The Max temperature now is in Prime95 at 70°

 

I am using a Thermalright Truespirit 140 Cooler and Asus P8Z68-VPro Gen 3 Mainboard. For Monitoring i use Hardware Monitor and Prime95 as a benchmarksoftware

 

My Question now is if high Voltages about 1.5V are damaging the CPU and if there is a way to push the CPU a bit more without risking its Health

1.5 is super high, not recommended for daily use.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Right so i am still testing and my PC crashed again so i am down at 4,5 GHz at 1,4 Volts. Looks like i wont get more then that.

Is 1,4 Volts ok or is this still to high?

I would try to stick to 1.4v max for daily use. Personally I wouldn’t go much above 1.35v but that’s just for my own peace of mind.

Like i said i had at 1.59 Volts 78°C and at 1,4V i have about 70° and the Voltage still regulates itself in Prime95 between 1.37 and 1.38Volts. I only have to take 1.4 Volts because the PC will crash otherwise (probably because of Voltage peeks)
