Ryzen 5 2600 4.325Ghz are the voltages ok?

I just overclocked my cpu and ram and I came pretty far. But I’m not sure if the voltages are low enough?
This was my first time overclocking and can somebody make sure everything is ok?

Specs
Ryzen 5 2600 3.4ghz
2x4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws V 2800mhz
X370 MSi Gaming pro carbon
650w Corsair psu
EVGA Gtx 1070 8gb ftw

Overclocked to:
4.325ghz cpu
3200mhz 1-13-15-15-16-35 ram

Voltages:
CPU core voltage 1.425v
Soc voltage 1.15v
Dram voltage 1.41v

CPU temps stay below 65 Celsius on water when doing 4-6 cinebench runs.

1.425v was the recommended maximum for Zen, according to AMD. With Zen+ being on 12nm you can expect that max "safe" voltage to be a bit lower, so probably somewhere between 1.35v-1.4v depending on temps. I personally keep my CPU at 1.375v and see how high I can get while keeping temps under control, in my case that's 4.1GHz.

My RAM is a kit of G.Skill Flare X @3200MHz, 14-14-14-34 but it's currently OC'd up to 3466, 14-14-14-30 (1.42v)

As for SoC, 1.2v is the socially accepted limit but I don't typically like going above 1.1 (1.15 if I think I can get absolute stability thanks to it)

I don't think it's necessarily worth skirting the line of "max safe temps" just for the few extra percentiles you might get if it ends up costing years off the life span of your CPU.
 
You obviously won some "Silicone lottery" with that CPU.
Anything under 1.5v is safe for that CPU if cooled enough but that also may put strain on VRM so it's temperature should also be kept in check. High Soc voltage may have opposite effect and actually influence RAM stability to worse but it's OK unless it heats up CPU too. Memory controller is in the CPU.
1.41v for RAM is also OK for that memory.

1.5v on the cpu is the maximum and not recommended for long term use. 1.25v SOC is the maximum but again, not for long term use. 1.45v on the ram is the max safe volt but, one more time, not for long term use.

AMD's recommended voltage for long term use is:
CPU 1.35-1.4 depending on CPU temps.
SOC 1.1-1.2 again depending on temps.

Personal Experience with RAM: 1.35 is great for long term use and no instabilities. 1.45 if your ram comes with really good heat spreaders.

These settings are great as a general rule of thumb because not all motherboards give access to vdroop control. If you have a good mid to high end mobo with 12 phase power, great ram cooling, an expensive top of its class cpu cooler and dont care how long your parts last then feel free to use the absolute max or above voltage settings (if you know what you're doing). If not, then err on the side of caution, your parts will last longer.
