Are these voltages safe for an 8086k?

Hi everyone,

I've been reading about safe cpu voltages lately and it seems like no one has mentioned going above 1.39 for the cpu. I also noticed in hwmonitor my cpu's voltage is at 1.424 if I got that right. Is this safe for the cpu and it's life span? I have a h100i v2 as my cpu cooler.

Wowza that's high. For 5GHz it's excessive, you should go for 1.25 volts

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

you absolutely could, and use less voltage. 5GHz all core with something between 1.2 and 1.3 volts would be great.

Then its just Intel/mobo vendor using variable voltage and there is nothing to worry about
