Is setting the Voltage to Auto when overclocking Safe?
Quite new to overclocking here I have the Q6600 B3 and right now I'm running it at 2.8GHZ with auto voltage CPU-Z shows 1.424V for the CPU which is quite high but my temps are quite low 28C IDLE and 51C LOAD with Prime95 using Corsair H50 LC
My question is, Is putting voltage to auto recommended and if I leave it at auto, if I push my processor to 3.2 GHZ does that mean the voltage will increase automatically
Last time I did this, I booted up with a 3.2GHZ Dual core so I had to clear the CMOS

At the very least I think you should set your CPU voltage manually. It takes about 10 seconds and you can rest with the peace of mind that it's not changing unless you tell it to.
Motherboards are notoious for supplying to much voltage, change it to manual.
