I haven't done any overclocking in the past, but have been fooling around with it today.

I have this i5-4690k at 4.3mhz, voltage is 1.26 Idle at 26c with an H110 cooler. Just wondering if this is OK, I'd like to leave it here.

No one can tell you it's OK, each system will react differently and have different limits.

What you need to do is some stress testing and monitor the temps. Idle temps are fine, but you need to see temps at load and test at load for stability.

Prime95 for at least 6 hours (overclocking gurus will stand firm on the 24 hour rule) or it ain't considered "stable".

61 isn't bad at all. Sounds like it's going to be fine at that speed, run Prime95 for a while longer if you want.
