Why would he want to run his CPU with stock speed at such a high voltage? If anything he should find out his stable lowest voltage and use the offset mode then so it doesnt run at higher voltage for no reason.

Because, why bother? If you don't want to spend the time and effort to overclock the CPU and are happy to run at stock speeds, why would you spend time and effort to trim a tiny amount of voltage off at stock speeds? There's nothing wrong with running 1.25V at stock speeds, even if it is higher than necessary, and his temps are fine, so why bother with it? Not everyone feels the need to run right at the ragged edge of performance.

If he decides he wants to overclock, then by all means set up a fixed or offset voltage to maximize the performance and minimize the voltage, since you'll be spending the time and effort anyway. But if all you want to do is use the computer as designed, then fix the issue with the excessively high voltage (as he has) and press on.

Edit: And I'm not saying that's what I'd do (I'd overclock it), but it is a perfectly acceptable course of action. Hundreds of thousands of Ivy Bridge owners are doing the same thing.
