I've experimented myself with my OC and different settings and personally I do not use "AUTO" settings for voltage offset. For some reason the voltage seems to increase more than it really needs to when OCing. After playing around with that setting I could run my OCs cooler. Personally I use a 0.03 value offset, you might want to start low and go upwards until you find the sweet spot. Also, I personally use AIDA64's stress test, it is more appropriate one to use for my Ivy Bridge processor. You probably have a bad mount, but your temps are definitely too hot.

Case: Haf x with fan setup as follows:
2x200mm at top as exhaust
1x200mm side fan intake
1x200mm front fan intake
1x140 or 120mm rear fan as exhaust.
noctua with 2 fans attached.
Im using the P95 test in the picture. The guide i was following said to select blend, then custom, and set p95 to use 85 or 90 percent of available ram. I chose 85 percent.
first day using:
EDIT: Bios Screenshot, keep in mind this is my first ever overclock. Maybe i've done something COMPLETELY wrong? :( I appreciate the help guys.
