MSI Z68A GD65 (G3) questions

hi all,
i am planning to upgrade my mobo to this:
http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z68A-GD65--G3-.html

but i am worried, since i am using i5 2500K,
and this review shows that the vcore is up to 1.408v, on 4.7ghz!
http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cpu_mainboard/msi_z68a_gd65_g3_review/5

the i5 2500k's vcore should not exceed 1.2v imho...

this is bad news, as i am afraid to let my vcore go past 1.2v...
although i only plan to OC to 4 to 4.2 ghz...
will this MSI mobo let me reach my targeted OC with just stock vcore? or even 1.2v?
should i get this board? it's good price though...and the mobo looks good...

    Could you post some screenshots of your bios? Been using OC Genie but I want to push it higher. Thanks in advance.
