Corsair Vengance LPX 16g (2x8) DDR4 3200 c16 1.35v

So the last time i overclocked a processor i used a pencil....its been a while. I am building a PC for my brother with the above MB and CPU, last night i tried Asus Easy tune in the BIOS. Right away it set it at like 5.1+ ghz. so i boot into windows and its turboing up around 5.2ghz...temps are good, no issues, then i pulled up CPU-z and saw the vcore was fluctuating between 1.40 and 1.43. From my reading this appears to be too high for a permanent overclock. i really didn't want to go up that high as my brother wont want to mess with it, this needs to be a set it and forget it overclock. So my question is does anyone have the manual settings for a 5ghz OC for this board so i can easysauce set it up and burn it in?

not sure if this should be under MB or overclocking, mods please move if im in the wrong place.
