Hi, I recently got core i7-8086K cpu. I tried overclocking and the best result I got at 5.0GHz on all cores at 1.31v
Temperatures during cpu intensive gaming is 60-70c. Cinebench R15 after 5 continuous runs reaches 74C (72-74) Cooler is NZXT Kraken X52
Are these numbers good for 8086K? Is the voltage and temperatures I have safe for daily use? Thanks!
 
Those are quite good numbers, says you have a little more room temperature wise. Anything up to 1.35 is safe for daily use.

If you are satisfied with 5Ghz, then running it that way should be a lot quieter.
 
Yep, see I only have the 4 cores and it takes delidding, 1.4 volts and a full custom loop to stay at 5Ghz. I'm tempted to see what WhiskeyLake / Cannonlake bring to the table, but I really don't need a faster CPU for now.
