Overclock stability - first build

Hello TH,

I've been using my new computer for a few weeks, and I've been trying to make sure that I haven't overlooked anything that may cause instability or faster than normal hardware degradation. My CPU voltage is a little high, and it fluctuates a fair bit, but I'm hesitant to change it as it took some fiddling to stay stable during IBT and P95. Also, my RAM which is rated at 1.5V appears to be reading at 1.87V (if VIN1 in CPUID is indeed memory voltage). I've linked to a screenshot of a few hardware monitoring programs, and can upload BIOS screen shots as well. Just wondering if anything sticks out as being irregular or unusual.

    Your CPU voltage is fine, although I wouldn't increase it any more just to be safe.
