  1. If that's what you have the Vcore set to I would immediately set it back to default before you seriously damage your CPU. Over 1.3v is extremely high if you don't have the appropriate cooling mainly water and you're going for 4.8-5Ghz. also im from northern ireland pleased to meet you :D
  2. If you have a Intel CPu dont go over 1.35v and for AMd it is 1.55v MAX/ 1.4125 is stock for a 8350 i think so your golden :D
  3. 1.4125 is usually fine for AMD CPU's. How are your temperatures under load?

    highest temps under full load playing dota 2 63*c which is ok could be better but Ive never seen my cpu go over 65*c.

    That's warm but you're in the safe range before you have to worry about throttling. If you are using a stock cooler a aftermarket cooler should shave off a few degrees. I'm guessing that you have the 8350 in which case your voltage is within the normal range for your overclock. If you haven't already you could try lowering the voltage slightly and see if it remains stable.

    thanks for clearing all that up with me just wanted to be safe when overclocking and i cant go any lower than 1.4volts so ill keep it at that.
