    [SOLVED] i7 9700K 5.1 GHZ 1.39V AVG. - Is it safe?

    Hello! I managed to get my 9700K to 5.1 GHZ Stable on 1.39 Volts average. Maximum peaks are up to 1.44V - those are only peaks, it doesn't stay there. Temperatures are good -> 68-74C when playing CPU intensive games. Is it safe in the long term? Should I keep it like that? Thanks!
