Default Safe voltages for i5 750?

I'm trying to push my i5 750 to a stable 4.2GHz. I've managed to get it stable but the voltage is around 1.35. Is 1.35 to high for an i5 750?

Stepping: 5
Revision: B1

I don't think so...
Can you post your definitions from BIOS? Memory too? I've been trying to OC my i5 but without much success...
Thanks

Max safe voltage for the chip is 1.45v. Mine is sitting at 1.4125 (GB is weird like that) with a 4.2ghz clock under air. Anything over 1.45v is doable but not recommended unless your under at least water. If you have DDR3 2000 for RAM then set your turbo on, put the bclk at 200, and the turbo will bump the multi for a 4.2ghz clock.

Thanks for the help guys.


So I ran a stress test at 4.2GHz however I had to have the voltage at 1.39ish for it to run stable. This was causing me to get temps of 80C-90C under load in Intel Burn Test. So I ended up dropping it down to 3.8GHz and bringing the voltage down to 1.312 and in Intel Burn Test the highest temps I got were around 72C so I think 3.8GHz is the highest I'll be going with my Xigmatek rifle.

One last question, which values have you used for RAM timings?

Stress testing programs put to much stress on a CPU and isnt exactly realistic. Make sure your heatsink is seated properly with a fresh dose of TIM and then retest it with some gaming or a benchmark like 3DMark. My temps get in the 80s even with a TRUE120 and dual Noctua fans but im not exactly worried about it because i know a few things about my CPU. Like for instance i know core 4 shows temps higher than what they actually are. I also know that my CPU doesnt get that hot even when im intense gaming (besides Supreme Commander). Besides Supreme Commander my temps never go above 75c.
