i5 4670k running very high voltage?

I have a i5 4670 that i have overclock to 4.2Ghz. In the bios I set the Vcore to 1.050v with adaptive mode but when I check CPUz it says my Vcore is 1.193v. Is that ok or should I change it to manual mode? Also how come my cpu is constantly running at 4.2Ghz? I thought Haswell was suppose to go into C-State if it's not doing anything. Thank you ahead of time for your help.

    Idk cuz..I'm running a Biostar but..
    mine has 2 voltages..+ the umm..VCCIN
    disable turbo voltage or make it like.. .010
    i have the 1st voltage set to .015 and the second @ 0
    It's a bit of a pain;but you can figure it out :)
    It's a combination of those 4.
    Set your VCCIN or Vrin or watever to as low as possible (1.76) i think
