    Accidental overvoltage, 4790k

    venge

      Hello to the people.

      I recently bought a 4790k. I checked the voltage with my ASUS z97 pro gamer and it was 1.302 by default giving me some high temps at FPU stress. So I wanted to lower it to 1.18. But (stupid clumsy head) accidentally I set it to 1.8. I saved bios, rebooted, and a message at post said: Overvoltage warning!!. Immediately I entered BIOS, changed my voltage to 1.18 hit F10 and enter, in like 10 seconds. Do you think I damaged my chip? It costed me a fortune, and I'm so happy with it... Please no trolling
