All cores will boost... With my cooling and a -.1 voltage offset, rendering/ synthetic tasks boost all cores to 4.1 or 4.0 GHz (closer to 4.1 - but after heat soak in Intel Burn Test, they creep back down to 4 GHz).
"Lightly threaded" loads 4.2 GHz on the utilized cores. One or two threads, peaks up to 4.35 GHz.
I wouldn't mind running manual voltage, but offset really saves power, down to like .7 volts on low-use cores. PBO even with the offset shoots up the voltage to 1.4 to 1.45... Without offset, up to 1.55v.
I did an IBT run at 4.2 GHz locked at 1.4V, and my power consumption jumped by 70 Watts at the wall compared to just using PBO. Could I lower the Voltage, probably, but I just wanted to do a quick run since I'm spec'ing out a new PSU.
