    Small update:

    Don't look at the voltage, very risky

    Intel Core i7 6700K @ 5202.55 MHz - CPU-Z VALIDATOR

    My board only allows to 1.52v, you got 1.6????!Official OC Leaderboard-shocked-scream-smiley-emoticon.gif

    Had the chip almost validating at 5.3 GHz at the voltage but got BSOD when CPU Z was opening browser to display results. I chickened out trying agsin at that voltage so I settled with the 5.2

    May try 1.65v or even 1.7v to validate 5.3GHz

    Go for it. Skylakes(and Kaby too) will just shut down before they fry.
    But it might be better doing this with software overclocking, as from a cold boot(if the system BSODs or CPU shuts down), from what I've read, you can get a voltage spike much higher than your set Vcore, and that can be dangerous.
    You might not be able to get back into BIOS unless you clear the CMOS then, and reset your current BIOS settings to it's default(OK if you saved your OC profiles). this happened to me.

    Just plain restarting keeps an electrical load on OC capable motherboards, so there is no voltage spikes(from the capacitors I believe).


    Crashing:

    The motherboard, CPU, and PSU all have protection mechanisms in place to protect the hardware in your system. These protection mechanisms can cause crashing and throttling. If you system crashes suddenly, especially during load and just shuts down or restarts, then you have hit a trigger. The motherboard has trigger points in place when a trigger is breached the system is immediately shut down. Over current protection (OCP), over voltage protection (OVP), and over temperature protection (OTP) can immediately shut down the system if a trigger is tripped.
    *
    You can increase these triggers on most motherboards in their advanced VRM/PWM settings menu, and I have highlighted these menus earlier in this guide under each board's page. If your system is crashing by BSOD or an error code then that is usually instability rather than a trigger, you need to either increase voltage, drop frequency, or improve cooling.
    *
    Throttling: If your CPU frequency is throttling there are multiple causes. The first cause of throttling is high CPU temperature (usually over 90C), and that is a built-in CPU protection mechanism. The second cause of throttling is VRM temperature and/or current limits set in the UEFI under Turbo options. Many lower-end motherboards might have VRMs that don't have heat sinks and which are low in phase count, these boards are prone to overheating, and there isn't much you can do other than cool the VRMs.

    No, they might Fry, be very careful. That kind of voltage require extreme cooling
