3570k OC Question...

Mobo: ASUS P8z77-v-pro
Cooling: Corsair H100
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1600 CL 9

I just want to OC to 4.1 Ghz right now (will do a higher OC later when it would actually benefit the games more), however, leaving the voltage to Auto or Offset scales the voltage WAY too high IMO (1.32v for 4.1 on Auto and 1.25v for 4.1 on Offset).

I can easily get 4.1 to run stable at 1.13-1.14v--wouldn't it be better to just leave it there? The yoyo-ing is driving me crazy and I'm trying to pin down the Offset voltage but it just seems to be the exact same thing as Auto with a slight decrease if I use "-" offset (keyword--slight).

Any ideas?

BTW--Prime95 (Blend) temps never pass 60-61C (hottest core--the other 3 cores stay around 52-55C) with cooler on Medium. Also, before anyone says it--I do NOT want a more aggressive OC for now.

Thanks in advance.

apologies....apparently there are many variables for each individual cpu. your claim is 1.13-1.14 volts for stable 4.1 OC. These are very modest voltages and your temps are low so i would lock the voltage in at 1.14 and call it a day. Manual no offset in bios.
