Im running at intel 2500k on a MSI z68a-GD65(g3). I just overclocked to 4ghz and im just curious if 1.17 volts is alright for a 2500k at 4ghz.

Ive tested it and its completely stable and it runs battlefield 3 at around 55 to 60 C.

just curious on what you guys think?

Aslong as it is stable its fine, just don't go above 1.5 as thats intels max specced voltage. Most people don't like going over 1.4~1.45

What cooler are you using? that seems excessively high for such low volts.
