i7 4770k Vcore running at 1.275v. Is this too high?

Alright, so I recently bought an h60 liquid cooler and decided to OC my 4770K to 4.2 GHz. I did a stress test on Prime95. After about 1 hour 20 mins, my computer gave me the blue screen with a 'WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR' message (windows 8.1).

I logged the test. For the entire duration (1 hr 20 mins) my Vcore averaged 1.275v. Is this too high for a 4.2GHz OC? Also, my core temps averaged from 65 - 70 C for the entire duration of the test. At some points, temps did hit 92 C but briefly.

Any idea what caused the blue screen error?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Nope it is a very normal value. Did you manage to find out why you had a blue screen?

Thank you for your response.

Nope, I'm still scratching my head over what caused it. It couldn't have been my temps, they were in the 67 - 72 C range at the time. Also, I've checked my hardware, they all function well.

Try and reset your bios to factory settings (i.e. remove any overclocking settings) and see how it goes for 3-4 days. If no problems occur then something went wrong with your overclocking.

Yeah, this is very comparable to mine. My temps are a little lower though.
