What is the max my voltage should be?

I'm using an Asus P8Z77-V LK and a 3570k. I'm totally new to overclocking (I'm sure you read that 100 times a day) and I am worried about my voltage. I tried to OC to 4.4ghz but I couldn't get it stable even at 1.352v. I have it stable at 4.2ghz with 1.232v. It's set to manual so it's constantly at that voltage. I've seen posts on random forums of people getting like 4.5ghz with 1.250v and that sounds crazy to me. I'm wondering if all of this is normal...and I just got an unlucky chip? Or are my BIOS settings just screwed up somehow? Let me know if you need to know any of my settings.

I think 1.352 is too high for 4.4 Ghz :-/ I guess 1.300 is the limit, even for (very) unlucky chips...

1. Do you have Overvolting enabled?
2. What voltage do you get when you set it to auto (without overvolting) and run prime95?

1.55 volts is Intels recommended max vcore on that CPU, I believe.Don't stray anywhere near that recommendation.Stick with what is stable and safe for you, as all chips are different.

But 1.352 for a 3570K at 4.4Ghz? That sounds way to high for me :-/

1. I have it on auto.
2. With auto voltage and overvoltage set to disable, it hits 1.368.

But 1.352 for a 3570K at 4.4Ghz? < Voltage does seem high for 4.4......\I can do 4.7 at 1.284 volts\Temps mid 70's, but i cool with the huge Noctua.

Be careful!

I'm jelly...I just blue screened so I put the voltage up a notch and now I'm at 1.24v at 4.2ghz.
