Right now my 4670k corei5 on asrock extreme6 z87 motherboard is idling at 35 degrees with a cm v6gt cpu cooler.

When playing bf4 on ultra settings , it was at 68degrees.

Speed is currently @4.4ghz and all voltages in bios are set to auto.Maybe thats why im not getting better temps , although theyre very decent the way they are now.

So my question is , will setting the voltages manually gives me better temps ?

try reducing it by -0.005V and see what happens, it might become unstable, then reduce frequency.

You might see better temperatures. It comes down to whetever or not your motherboard pushes the CPU as low as it can go on the Voltage at clock ratio xx.

Also, don't buy ASUS motherboards. Take some time and see how they are fooling you here:

Yeah ASUS, ASRock and MSI motherboards are all fine, but when you get down to the details that really separates them, Gigabyte crushes them by using much higher quality components with better performance.

I myself first discovered this video last night. I was kinda shocked and glad that I bought a Gigabyte motherboard and not something else.

Which core should i reduce ? There are many cores and im getting confused.

Check out this guide to overclocking specifically for AsRock mobo's. It was originally for the P67, but it worked for my z77 extreme6 and most everything should be the same for your z87 extreme6: http://www.overclock.net/t/1198504/complete-overclockin...

Cheers ! I will have a look at it later on today , so i will tighten up my temps !
