I was looking for 3800x to replace good working 2700x but couldn't get it in timely fashion so had to settle for 3700x.BIOS 5007 was at this time. With full boost PBO set to all maximums (X10 and 200MHz OC), only couple of cores go over 4.3GHz (typically 4.317) and the rest is well above 4.2GHz. Voltages (depending on benchmark) are in the high 1.3v range (1.372 typically).
I was able to OC all cores to 4.4GHz but at a cost of 1.425v and temps just above 70c. (typically 72 -76c) which i think made CB r20 scores few points bellow benchmark at 4.35GHz. I see cooling as being most important to boost and OC (providing VRM and whole MB are up to scratch of course)
First picture is at 4,35GHZ and second with PBO enabled to max.
