It does not bring any instability to the system (other than I feel it messed up downclocking/downvolting a some time ago) but for a long time I feel like I'm not gaining anything.
I may not be any help, I am still running 1103 on my C7H/2700X that I've had since the Zen+ launch. I am still pleased with the performance I'm getting out of this setup and how well PBO works. I have a 3900X to pop in it but I have yet been able to convince myself to break up the marriage of this particular combo C7H / 2700X .
You should not feel "stuck" with your 2700X - I have 3950X thru 3800X systems, and this ole girl (C7H/2700X) can still play and contribute. It's pretty much only benchmark numbers that throw shade on her.
