    What do the experts think about this OC guide?

    I used this youtube guide to get my 9600k to 5.1 on my xi formula. Its stable but I feel 1.455 volts is way to high. I have to say it worked just the way he said the first time. In my experience thats rare when overclocking.

    These were the settings I changed per the videos advice. Under load its right at the predicted voltage of 1.412v in cpuz with these settings.
    Extreme tweaker screen
    -XMP 1 then click no when prompted, because I want to overclock manually.
    -AVX offset 3 or 4
    -sinc all cores at 5.1ghz

    In the external digi power control screen
    -Load line calibration 7
    -CPU current capability 170%
    In the CPU power management screen
    Long duration package power limit 4095 maxed out
    Package power time window 127 maxed out
    Short duration package power limit 4095 maxed out

    Extreme tweaker screen again
    -CPU core cache current limit max 255.75 maxed out
    -min cpu cache ratio 43
    -max cpu cache ratio 43
    -CPU core voltage override 1.455v

    After 1 hour on prime 95 it got really hot a few times and one core ran up to 95c with an average across all cores of 85c. AIDA64 ran for 1 hour with a max temp of 70c and an average of 60c. It stays under 36c while playing overwatch for an hour.

    My question is are these voltages necessary or can I get them down with different settings? Or should I leave it and be happy? It would be nice to get them down and go to 5.2ghz.
