Right now, I am going to see how far the motherboard can push my 7960X. The best overclock (or typical one) able to pass my Handbrake 4K encoding benchmark for stability is 4.4GHz with 1.185v VCore.
I set input voltage to 2.1v to ensure high performance, then set VCore to 1.185v with LLC at Turbo. There aren't any other PWM options to unlock current limits, but I didn't need them in the end. I did enable XMP for the 3600MHz kit, but it looks like this motherboard needs some more tuning with the kit, so I had to set the memory at 3200MHz.
