Hi guy I overclocked my CPU yesterday with a fixed voltage since i don't know how to set up offset mode. Is there any problem running 24/7 on fixed voltage? My cpu is 2500k @1.2volts 4.2ghz
 
If you can get away with no there is nothing wrong.
It may fall over when heavy load is put on it, you should test it at the voltage it is at with a cpu stress test.

Overclocking often requires a bit of voltage increase of the cpu to keep it stable.
But not all 2500K cpu`s will be the same when it comes to overclocking.
Some will do better than others, or worse.

keep an eye on your temps of the cpu as well

Make sure you have good cooling for the cpu, the stock intel HS and fan would of been made without overclocking the chip in mind.

High idle temps usually mean poor case airflow. What case do you have?

I have a cm 690 with some noiseblockers pl2. I think the problem is either the ambient temp (which I dont know if it's high) or the case's mesh that might be blocking some air.
