Lack of voltage drop

Good day to all.

Question about constant voltage. 4670k, closed loop water cooler, z97 asrock uefi updated.
Running a 4.3ghz overclock right now and I am trying to determine what controls the idle vcore voltage when the system is in override mode.
1.25v, did occt for 30mins temps peaked at 63c idle at 28-31c. When the stepping drops the idle clock to 800mhz the voltage has no change. In adaptive mode the voltage drops to match, but I am nervous to put in adaptive since when under load I see voltage can go to 1.26+. Tried the FIVR negative thing presuming that was it with no avail.

My TLDR is how can I have idle voltage drop to match current clock in override mode. Also if you feel like answering, should the voltage be my limiter or cpu temps. 1.25 is a scary bridge =)

Thanks in advance.
-Brandon.

Any gurus available on this fine morning?

A Vcore of 1.25 v. is perfectly acceptable on the i5 4670K. Temp of 63*C is also very good.

You have nothing to be worried about.

Thanks for the response Y0GI, do you by chance know about the voltage not dropping when the clockrate does?

You cannot be in Override Mode and expect voltage to drop. It just won't. That is the whole purpose of Override.

To see the voltage drop as CPU load decreases, you have to use Adaptive Mode.
