So today i tried overclocking my cpu by increasing the multiplier first from 28 to 31, and after seeing that system seemed stable after the increase, (neither HWmonitor, nor Cpu-Z didint seem to report anything being wrong, i know that its silly to depend on these programs) i increased the multiplier to 35, thus overclocking cpu to 3.5ghz. At first everything seemed normal (i mean temps under load, cpu didint go past 46c)
but then i noticed that core voltage (while playing crysis 3) increased to 1.448V which seems to be way to much.
So im wondering:
1. Is there a way in bios to manually set the core voltage to a better number which would keep a stable OC without shortening cpu's lifespan and letting me keep the current core speed or even improve it, and if so, how?
2. If not, what should i do? Reduce the OC or just solve the high Vcore problem in another way?
3. It seems that even in idle core voltage sometimes increases to 1.46V which is abviously bad, so i returned cpu to clock speed (2.8hz), but even without any major programs opened, it seems t sometimes reach 1.3V (All ive got opened is Cpu-Z, HWMonitor, HWINFO64, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Google chrome with about 12 threads open and minor programs like avast, thunder master, nvidia settings, realtek HD audio manager and Microsoft security essentials ) Is it normal? And if not, how could i fix it?
