Overclocking using Asrock Fatality z87 Killer presets?

I am new at overlocking. I just got a Corsair Carbide 500r case and H100i cooler.

My motherboard is the Asrock Fatality z87 Killer and I have an Intel Core i5 4670k. One of the features in the motherboard BIOS is preset overclocking settings. You can choose 4000 / 4200 / 4400 / 4600 / 4800 MHz and it uses manufacturer presets.

I set it 4200 and ran prime95 for 45 minutes while monitoring my temps on HWMonitor. The max any core got up to was 73 C. The VID got up to 1.242 V.

I am only looking for a modest overclock at this time. Will I be safe with these settings? (pending further stability and temp testing)

1.242 is pretty high vcore for 4.2ghz. i know it also depends on your cpu but still. you can try to increase more frequency to like 4.4ghz or if you like staying at 4.2ghz then lower the vcore to 1.12-1.15 until its bsod or freeze on testing then go back to the last stable condition

I think adaptive voltage is turned on. After test running some games, VID got up to 1.16 V (max tamp 48C).

Should I turn off adaptive voltage?

EDIT: I just read in the Haswel OC guide to turn off adpative for using synthetic stress tests. I am setting the voltage to override at 1.15V and running some more tests.

dont use adaptive mode for testing because it automatically increases vcore really high. everything should be manual so you can easily manage and adjust also i suggest aida64 extreme for stress testing. if your cpu is stable at 1.15 for about 20-30 mins test, try to get it lower like 1.120 or 1.100 if possible until crash occurs. play couple heavy modern games like bf4 or cod ghost

Once I find the stable voltage and conclude testing should I leave voltage set to manual or change it to adaptive?
