Too much vcore for my i7-4820k at 3.9GHz?

    If changing memory settings to XMP, my motherboard sets the turbo to sync to all cores which is 3.9GHz on all cores and then my vcore is 1.171v during idle and a bit lower during load due to Vdroop, with vcore on Auto. CPU core temps reached 65C during Intel Burn Test at the Very High setting. Is 1.171v too much for my CPU running at an all core turbo of 3.9GHz? If I get an error in a program or a BSOD should I first blame it on my CPU if it's running at 3.9GHz on all cores?

    Generally if it passes IntelBurn Test, it's good to go.. Temp isn't bad, and as long as it's stable don't worry about it.

    The voltage looks a little high for that frequency, but it's nothing to be concerned about. You could probably lower it with manual tweaking, but it's up to you if you want to spend time thoroughly testing voltages out.

    That's still a reasonable, safe voltage. I wouldn't be concerned.

    Well 4Ghz is free. No need to touch the voltage, If you want to go higher then 4Ghz then you have to touch the voltage a bit
