Is Asus Auto Tweak Setting My Voltage Way To High?

So I was messing around with my Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero today and I normally do my own overclocks and try to keep my VCore at or lower then 1.4v as I have read many times that 1.45v is where you can start to shorten your CPUs life. Well while exploring and playing around with some features I figured I'll try the Auto tweak feature on my mobo, what the hell? I wanted to see what it could do. Supposedly they're a lot safe then what they use to be, so figured I would give it a shot. I honestly thought it would only give a few MHz bump and pretty much wouldn't even be noticeable. Well it bumped my 1800X to 4.02GHz and VCore to 1.504! I mean it is stable and although temps are warmer then when I have it set to 3.89 GHz with its voltage around 1.4-1.45 the temps are not "Horrible". I got EK pump and blocks tied to a 360mm rad but the fact that auto tweak set the VCore to 1.504v has me scared a little. Is this normal? Have any one messed around with voltages in this range? I know it's not uncommon to push voltages for a short duration for record pushing but this is what Asus set it to for a "Daily Operation" profile. I have included a screen shot of a CPUID read out after pushing both CPU and GPU to saturate the cooling system and here are the voltages / heat.

That is why it a Auto OC and should be avoided at all cost.

It's never recommended to use an Auto OC feature, whether it is via BIOS or GPU software, try to void that at all costs.

Re: Is Asus Auto Tweak Setting My Voltage Way To High?

thanks to the responses all. Yea that's what I was leaning towards and put in my own tweaks after making the post until I got some responses from some people. 1.5v just seemed to high for me.  Here are what voltages and temps look like with my tweaks
