Hi

I am a first time overclocker.
I have an i7 2600k, an Asus p8z68-v pro motherboard, and a corsair h100, case: in win dragon rider

(before anyone says "should have bought a noctua d14", it is too tall to fit in my case due to a 240mm fan)

i am planning to overclock to 4.5 / 4.6 ghz

could anyone tell me some safe voltages for the core?

Many thanks

A 2600K should be close to 1.270v for 45x and 1.300v for 46x with Hyper Threading Enabled, all hardware is different so this is a Plus or Minus regarding voltage but those voltage numbers should be in the ballpark, for you to work from there.

I'll go for 1.3V, i'll just up voltage if it becomes unstable (and temps are fine).

I run my 2700K at 4500mhz with Hyper Threading enabled and the performance is fantastic, remember the lower the voltage the lower the heat and the longer the CPU will last for you.
