    Question Does higher Vcore decrease CPU's lifespan?

    Hi. So I am wondering if I should OC my 8700K from 3.7GHz with 1.136Vcore (maximum auto) to 4.8GHz with 1.312Vcore (override). Temps and power draw are not a problems for me, however I wonder that constant higher Vcore will reduce my CPU's lifespan dramatically and I don't want to buy any new...

    [SOLVED] "Stable" OC with way lower vcore than Silicon Lottery suggested?

    I am an OC newb with a delidded 8700k I got through Silicon Lottery, they binned it as stable at 5.1Ghz at 1.412 vcore with -2avx offset. That of course got insanely hot..

Or is it perfectly safe to run 1.45v Vcore? Will I lose performance leaving it stock? Getting mixed suggestions online, so thought I'd ask...
