Aurora R4 i7 3820 core voltage way too high

I've got an Aurora R4 with an i7 3820 CPU running at stock speed (3.6GHz) but CPU-Z is showing a core voltage of 1.392 V which is ridiculously high.

I've checked the bios but I can't really find where to set the core voltage. There's an entry called "Internal PLL Overvoltage" which is set to disabled and then there's "Dynamic CPU Vcore Offset (20H Out1)" which is set to Auto. I could set that to a fixed voltage but what does Dynamic CPU Vcore offset mean?

Does anyone how to get the voltage down to a more reasonable level? My cores are at least 10 degrees Celsius hotter than regular.

I read in a different forum that there was a possibility that CPU-Z was reporting erroneous voltages for Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge. It was a while a go so I'm not sure if this was corrected or not. But I tell you In case you want to go that route and research the accuracy of this claim.
