Is my voltage too high?

Hello all,

I built my rig last year but am a bit new to overclocking.

My specs are as follows:

MOBO: P67 GD80 (MSI)
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k
Memory: 4 Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 memory sticks

I am currently running an overclock of 4.5 GHZ @ 1.344V.
Memory is running at default stock settings.
My stability is quite good, no errors on prime 95 torture test in two hours.
Should I run my stability test longer? or go with it.

Also is my voltage too high for the current CPU overclock?
My temperatures never surpass 72 C, and are usually mid to high 60's.

Thanks.

no that's fine. Intel's internal engineering allows for vCore up to 1.4v but many people pass that

I would say try a little lower voltage and see how your stability is, but 1.344V isn't too far off of average for 4.5 (1.30-1.33V).
