Overclocking an I5-4670k

I've read Intel God's guide and I'm stable at 1.240 vcore. Temps are in the low-mid 70s at 4.4 ghz on prime95. I haven't altered my CPU Cache in anyway. It seems I hit the Silicon lottery thus far.


I'm just trying to find the point that I crash right now. I'm running 1.240. If I don't crash within 20 minutes I'll go down 0.01. When I finally crash I will go up 0.002 and test, and if I crash again up 0.002 until I don't crash within 2 hours of Prime. I haven't crashed yet so I'm still going down on Vcore.

Will this process damage anything? Will undervolting and crashing damage my cpu? Also, should I go further, to say 4.6 if temps and vcore allow?

EDIT: I dropped to 1.230 Vcore now. Still stable.

No and yes;If you are comfortable with the temps. :) 

Personally the temps on those things make me woozy when I see them.

Same. But apparently AI Suite III lied to me and only changed one core. So I'm testing 1.24 vcore at 4.3ghz. 4.4 isn't stable under 1.30 vcore and the temps are too high.
