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.

System Specs:
Case: Corsair Air 540
Motherboard: MSI Z87-G45
CPU: i5 4670K 4.2Ghz, 1.193v, ~60 degree during prime (water cooled)
Memory: 8gig G.Skill 1600Mhz 1.5v
GPU: GTX 760 1.345Ghz Core, 7400Mhz Memory, ~40Degree during furmark
PSU: Raidmax 850W
HDD: 120gig HyperX SSD, 2TB storage drive

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
