Will NOT undervolting/underclocking really be detrimental?
If your temperatures are normal, you don't need to undervolt. Also, you could try to see if you can get to 4Ghz at good temperatures. Ideally, you 'd want to have an IR thermometer to measure the mosfet temperatures too. Given that it officially supports 125W FX (although i 'd take that with a grain of salt), i think 4Ghz on 4core, would be tolerable...But i wouldn't attempt to overclock beyond that.
