X58UD5 not down throttling vcore when using custom voltage

the UD5 with D0 stepping i7 920 shows votage of 0.987-1.165 when on default. When i increase the vcore to 1.200 in bios, the vcore throttling no longer seems to work, it is at a constant 1.200.

is this normal, or is there a setting i can tick to get vcore throttling back..

the reason is that the unthrottle vcore consumes 10W more at idle, accoding to the gigabyte DES utility.

I believe it's the first one on my list, Enhanced C1(C1E) which enables and disables throttling. If I'm wrong, check the other one on the list.
