    Core i7 4790k @ Noctua NH-D15 & GA-Z97X-G1 overvoltaging by motherboard, bad initial temperature




      I just wanted to know, I recently purchased this mobo and cpu. My initial run pumped up CPU temps somewhere to 91°C, could about 20 seconds of this temp cause some damage to CPU? Right after as I booted I noticed temperatures are quite high, 40-45°C at idle and noticed motherboard hit my cpu with 1,458 vcore. After update to latest bios [F6] it backed down to 1.248 vcore.


      Could the CPU take some damage after these events?


      Please advise,


      kind regards
