Sometimes the bios might not set your memory timings correctly. It could be a CPU-Z problem but it can also be a bios problem.

LinX was the last official version but stasio combines that with the newer Linpack libraries from Intel. The latest libraries use the AVX instruction with in the CPU which creates a lot more heat, similar to what Prime95 can do. Worth upgrading to for stress testing purposes.

When a core is actively working on something it is in the C0 state. When it has nothing to do, most people set their systems up so it will drop down to the C1 state where it uses less power and can run cooler. Intel defines inactive cores as being in one of the low power C States like C3 or a deeper C State like C6. This isn't too important on the K series CPUs because you can manually adjust them to use the maximum turbo multiplier whether these deeper C States are being used or not. On the non-K CPUs, you need at least C3 enabled to get the maximum Turbo Boost to work correctly.

1.116 volts is really low. I ran my 3570K for a while at 1.150 volts when I first bought it and only had the crappy Intel heatsink. At that voltage it was reliable at 4300 MHz without any overheating issues.
