Hello,
I have a Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 motherboard, BIOS version FB.
My i5-2500K is OC'd to 4.0ghz, and I set the voltage(VCore) to 1.3v.
Problem is, in HWMonitor, the VCore is reported as max of 1.344v - I'm pretty sure this will decrease the lifespan of the chip further.

How do I get the BIOS/motherboard to stop increasing voltages that high?
I have c1e and the like set to auto, PLL is 1.800v and MultiSteps Load Line/ Load Line Calibration is set to Level 1, which goes up to Level 10. I do not know what this does as I have not found anything on what this could be.
I know the i5 is old and there are many posts, but I'd like something specific with my i5.
E: Also, idle it reaches around 50C
On load it's in the highs of 75C
Another also, here's the BIOS pics:
LLC should be at Level 1

If you'd like any more pictures, please ask but they'll be bad phone picture quality :(

System specs just in case:
Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3, BIOS revision FB
Intel i5-2500K
6GB DDR3-1600
Asus GT 1030
Deepcool GAMMAXX 200T
1TB HDD, 320GB HDD, 40GB SDD

Thanks, hopefully I could find out what's wrong with her!
