Help keeping VCore below 1.2 (6700k)

I'm having an issue with my BIOS settings. I have the max adaptive voltage set to 1.2 and the offset set to 0.001v. Despite this, my chip always goes up to 1.26-1.28 under load. If I stress test, I get Vdroop and the chip runs at 1.200v. Since I am stable doing a stress test at 1.2v, I would like to have that as my max voltage. What am I missing? How can I make that my max?

Why are you so adamant that it must stay below 1.2V?

If you've overclocked your CPU it's unlikely a flat 1.2 would be stable unless you have very very good chip but to give it a try there are a couple of things you can do. Under load your CPU is applying a lot more than 0.001 so you need to set the off set value accordingly i.e. - 0.060.
The other thing you could do is adjust the load line calibration to level 1 which will cause the vcore to jump far less if at all under load. You can find Load line calibration settings in the DIGI VRM menu.

Set all the settings related to adaptive voltage to auto for lowest voltage posible, this way i have with sync cores to 4.2 on to 1.2v and somewhere around 1.13 with core sync off, meaning with stock intel multipliers per core.

Update: I updated my BIOS to 1701 and applied the same settings as before. Now, everything works as expected.

Before: VCore 1.290 upon load and gradually drops to 1.2 over the course of 5-10 minutes
Now: VCore 1.248 upon load and drops to 1.2 within a few seconds.

I'm not an expert or the best at explaining things, but I believe what I am experiencing now is how the voltage should work and previously something was a little off
