I have a I5-8600k that is clocked at 4.6 (For some reason cpuz says 4.5 but in my bios i put it to 4.6) Ghz with a voltage of 1.136

OK? I don't see a question.
i have something similar going on, my bios say 4,7 with 1,32v and on the cpuz say 3,49ghz, help please
This my pc
-Phanteks p400 steel atx mid
-Gigabyte z370 (intel LGA 1151)
-Gtx 1080 founder edition custom evga watercooling kit
-Intel 8th gen core i5 8600k oc 4,7
-HyperX fury 2666MHz DDr4 2x4gb oc 3000
-HyperX fury 2666MHz DDr4 2x4gb oc 3000
-Evga 1000 bq 80+ semi modular
-Kingston A400 ssd 120gb
-Wd blue 1tb sata 6 Gb/s 7200 rpm cache 3.5
-PCI express tp link n150

Use hwinfo64, select the "sensors only" option when launching it. Your CPU will probably idle to a lower speed, so if you want to see it at full speed either run a benchmark/stress test or put select the High Performance Windows power plan. For voltage, look at Vcore, not VID.

Also, it looks like you're using some sort of program to overclock? That's best done in the BIOS itself.

MAn thanks so much, all i did was i went to the power settings on the control panel and i checked the cpu energy administratiton and it was on 99%

You're typically fine with the Balanced power profile, which by default has a minimum processor state of 5% and a max of 100%, allowing it to speed up and down as load requires. I just recommended High Performance so you could temporarily force it to full speed to verify what that speed was.

Oh jeez, didn't even realize I was responding to someone hijacking the thread, rather than the OP.

Yes, that voltage is fine. Nowhere close to the max safe voltage. Can't really be too low as long as it's stable.

As long as it stays under 80C under Max load you're fine.

Ty, helping 2 instead of 1 is always better
 
You want to monitor the vcore while under load.
CPU-Z is perhaps the easiest.
Run the CPU-Z stress test to load all cores and see how you do.
The CPU-Z stress test may not be the toughest, but it is reasonable.
Others are designed to generate maximum heat.

FWIW:
as of 3/22/2018
What % of I5-8600k chips can oc
at a aggressive vcore of 1.4 or so and delidded
4.9 96%
5.0 85%
5.1 66%
5.2 38%
5.3 13%

Note the delidded caveat.
Delidding makes heat transfer more efficient.
If a stress test runs at 85c. you are ok on the heat side.
The chip will throttle or shut down to protect itself if it detects a dangerous temperature.
That point is around 100c.

Of more importance is the vcore which can damage your chip if it is too high.
1.4v is about as high as you might want to go.
The 8600K is a great processor, how much do you really need that last multiplier??
