Set it to 1.35 to be safe.

Or check the temps with a program and if it's around 50 or over it could cause damage. then you could lower the cpu volts also if you lower to much it could damage the processor not having enough volts to it but puting to 1.35 wont hurt it though

It's unlikely to cause any damage but there is no reason to use a higher vcore if you aren't overclocking. If it isn't stable at the proper vcore, RMA it since it's defective.

hi everyone, i set her to 1.35 and she seems stable, but something still seems wrong for ex.the performance test in fear i used to score over 335 fps amazing ,i try it now and i see only 225fps max see why i think i hurt this cpu,the only other thing i did was set the memory to 1t command rate i havent overclocked any,its to bad...

hi everyone , i been messing around with the voltage and it seems that my mb does a slight overvolt of the cpu heres everything that i figured: set mb voltage to auto bios reports 1.392, set to 1.35 bios reports as 1.372/1.392, set to 1.30 bios reports 1.325/1.344 i guess im gonna set it to 1.30 and thats that, so you think i did anything setting it to auto? at 1.392
if anyone buys the a8n32slidlux mb make sure you set the voltage accordingly...
