I'm very new to overclocking and want a stable small overclock to 4.2ghz.
I'm reading everywhere that people have the voltage set to 1.14v and 1.15v for 4.2ghz, while I'm having it on 4.2ghz with 1.095v and it runs good. I will post pictures of my BIOS settings to show you guys what I did and maybe u could help me and give advise, because I'm not sure if I changed the right settings.

Here are the images of my BIOS

As you can see my multiplier is set to 42 and mode to fixed, should I keep this on fixed or change it to dynamic?
I changed the CPU Core voltage to 1.095v (Is this the good thing to change when changing voltage?) and it's set to override mode, should I keep it on this or set it to adaptive?
Any further suggestions/feedback?

The only thing you really need to do at this point is stress test it. Use something like Realbench or Aida64 to make sure that voltage will hold it stable while under load. Keep an eye on temps up to 90°c is fine

I saw some things about changing the override mode to adaptive after it's stable, good thing to do? And should I keep cpu ratio on fixed?

Adaptive adjust Vcore to CPU load so there less wear also power savings. I just save time and set Adaptive first with stress testing.
