Hey All, i've been overlocking as some of u may know and ive been reading heaps so i had ago myself.
i've played around with the voltages abit and just wanting to know if mine is okay and can it go lower ? im currently sitting on 4.7 ghz on these voltage settings.

so all i need to know is if i can go lower in

VCCSA . V
VCCIO. V
PCH. V
VTTDDR. V
2nd VCCIO. V

i'm also trying to lower my actual cpu voltage, currently sitting on 1.330, im trying to get it lower but yeah if u all can check the above and let me know that would be good.

stress tested ( YES ) with intel burn test on maximum passed okayed. max temp with real temps is 88 degrees

The best method is to actually do it - lower one voltage, and then run a short stability test if your system falls over when the CPU is maxed out or the ram is maxed out then, no your voltage is too low. Remember that the ultimate test of stability is being able to do the things you normally do 24/7 on your PC.

If if passes then lower another or lower that first one some more.

Awesome. I just wanted to make sure that its safe to lower the voltages above even if their really low :)

I would not lower VCCSA. It is supposed to be more or less 0.3V from Vcore so as you have it is already low.

What would happen if its to low? would somthing bad happen?

Lets put it this way. You have a motor car, and you are trying to save weight. So you reduce the amount of oil in your system to the bare minimum. You car runs just fine, but you have to make sure that you never go below the minimum level. Still you want to have more weight saving, so you take more oil out. The car still runs, but you are not seeing the problems to the parts that are slowly happening. I think you get the picture.

Will something bad happen, I do not know on your CPU. But I would guess that Intel know a thing or two about making a processor by now and just maybe they had a reason for suggesting that relationship with VCCSA and VCore. :)
