    4790k safe core voltage for everyday use



      What is the max safe voltage for i7-4790k when overclocking with water cooling.

      Would it be safe to run this cpu with 1.3 - max 1.4 core voltage for everyday use (gaming etc.) if temps are okay under max load?

      I plan to use this cpu maybe for another 1-2 years, so if it can take over 1.3 volts (<1.4v) with no problems for that time it would be great to push the clocks even further.

      Stability would be tested with various stress tests.
