Default Problems manually adjusting CPU vCore

Hi everyone. I just recently installed an aftermarket CPU air cooler and decided to dive into overclocking. I've been searching the internet for any and all information I could find, but I can't seem to find the answer to a problem I encountered just as I got started. I have an evga x58 FTW3 and an i7 950. All settings are stock except I've turned off speedstep, CxE function, and turbo boost. When set to auto, the CPU vCore is 1.1875V. However, if I manually set CPU vCore to 1.1875, it instead sets it to ~1.4V. At one point I attempted to set it to 1.25V and that resulted in a voltage of ~1.5V. After experimenting a little, I noticed turning off vDroop Control gave me voltages closer to where I set them, but surely that's not the only way.

What's going on?
