How do I stabilize my core voltage?

Hey guys, just got done with my new rig and messing around with OC'ing. If I leave my voltage in auto it automatically scales and brings my core voltage into the 1.4v area which Im not comfortable with on an Ivy Bridge. So I went in and set it manually and I can get a decent 4.5 out of my CPU and I have the voltage set at 1.32v but the bad side (I think) is that it will always be at 1.32v even at idle. Is there a way where I can leave it in auto but with a cap so it doesn't jump into the higher voltages as it tries to scale?

Offset voltage! ;)

Yes, use the + offset. I KNOW it seems counter intuitive to ADD voltage, but just trust me. I won't lead you wrong. It's not ADDING to the Auto voltage that you already see. It WILL be lower (even +0.005 will probably be too low). Just try it.

Edit: Actually you MAY be able to use a - offset... Got this thread confused with another offset thread that I helped with, lol. It still applies though.

I set my offset voltage to + .15 and Im currently at 4.7 and stable @ 1.352v at 100% stress...didn't like 4.8 = BSOD

Try lowering it to +.10, I run my 2600K with +0.5!
