My System Specs

Default i7 voltage question

ok well i am have no problems i am just not sure if this is high i don't normally go for high overclocks just the easy one with low voltage.

But i am now running a little higher none of the voltage scare me at all i just need to know if this is ok
loadline is on
all on water on bench
@4.0ghz max temps 65-63-63-61
cpu vcore 1.275
qpi/vtt 1.26
Ioh core auto
dram 1.5
cpu/pll 1.8

@4.2ghz max temps 75-74-72-72
cpu vcore 1.34
qpi/vtt 1.3
Ioh core auto
dram 1.5
cpu/pll 1.88

now the only thing is the cpu/pll at 1.88 is a little high? could some of the more experience over-clockers tell me what they think
thanks for all your thoughts

you dont need pll that high
i'm stable @ 4.77 with 1.81v pll some blk settings i might raise it to 1.84
you other volts are nice
just keep it below 80c
only thing i have degraded a cpu with is pll so keep it down
