The new CPUs don't overclock like crazy on air, in fact PBOC might be just as effective for mixed use cases. However, memory and FCLK clocks can be changed, and so we are using a 3600MHz kit and seeing how high we can take all cores. We are aiming for 4.3Ghz with a 3600MHz memory clock, and in this case it worked fine at 1.425v since that's where we hit a thermal limit.
However, CPU-Z and HWinfo were reporting the VCore dropping to 1.36-1.38v under load even with the highest level of LLC, but CPUz is probably a bit off considering the system was stable and temperatures were where they were on other motherboards.
