That's the risk you take in overclocking.

In order to function at a higher speed, the CPU works at a higher voltage.

Why are you overclocking? At the high speeds of today, the footling improvements you get by such procedures are hardly worth while - especially with a new machine.

What do the readings in the BIOS say? (maybe it's the program that is in error).

What do the PC suppliers say?
