Some platforms have other settings that may sometimes impact certain things but in general the OC works the same for any silicon based transistor.

Higher voltage + lower temperature = higher clock possible.

Simple as that.
You say its simple, but here's what I don't understand in the BIOS what the starting voltage is supposed to be. When left in auto, the voltage is dynamic and seems to go between 1.3V and 1.45V in Ryzen Master. If I change Vcore to "Normal" the default is 1.2V and seems to be lower than what auto would do. So what's a good starting manual Vcore?

There is just some tiny bit of big difference between sustained <1.35 load and every 1-100ms shuffling 0.4-1.48v
Polkfan mentioned sustained allcore load, not variable PB current in the >10ms territory
Both mentions are correct, but don't mix them up together please~
