Advise: Revisting a Stable OC of 3570k (4.4ghz) on ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - "Auto" Additional Turbo Voltage?

Hey Guys,

Long story short, about 1.5 years ago I overclocked my 3570k to 4.4ghz...and it was VERY STABLE and still is today (I followed the overclock.net guide for the most part). Here are my OC test logs: HERE. The row in yellow is where I settled on.

Ratio: x44
LLC Line: 4 (though I know 3 or 2 is recommended, maybe I should change this as well)
Offset: -0.005 (though normally recommended to be greater than 0)
Additional Turbo Voltage: Auto <--bad idea?
Load Voltage during Prime95 (CPU-Z): ~ 1.17v

However, for reason..I decided to leave Additional Turbo Voltage to "Auto" in BIOS (I don't think I fully understood it or perhaps I thought Auto = 0)...now I am thinking perhaps I could of reduced heat and optimized it some more if I had assigned it a value. I'm debating whether its worth my time to optimize this OC again..and/or perhaps even squeeze another 100-200hz out.

Though keep in mine, I personally don't want to go above 80C on Prime95 and 85C on IBT (exactly where I settled with current OC settings) and am not looking to add anymore max heat on load stress test. I'm thinking maybe the "Auto" is inflating the voltage/heat more than it needs to be.

Do you think tweaking the "Additional Turbo Voltage" settings (removing it off of Auto) would help optimize my current OC by reducing heat or increasing speed?

Also does anyone really know what "Auto" does for Additional Turbo Voltage? or is it just unpredictable.

I can provide pictures of my BIOS if that would help.

Thanks in advance.
