2700x Crosshair VII Hero Overclocking

Hi everyone, just made the move from my FX8350 to a R2700x, finally, and wow...
PC specs:
ASUS Crosshair VII hero [1201BIOS]
Ryzen 2700x Custom WC
16GB Hyperx Predator @[email protected] 18 18 39 85
EVGA GTX 980ti Kraken g12 WC

I have been doing some tweeking, watching videos, and reading forums, and am finally @3.7ghz that boosts to 4.2ghz, i think...
when i am not gaming it seems to idle at 4.14ghz, i think.. so not the 3.7 it says in task manager
See i would like the same as with my FX that on idle it was low core and voltage, and on demand power. Still scratching my head.
Also i knew the HX440C19PB3AK2/16 Kit wouldnt work at the stated 4000mhz but can't go any higher then 3600.
Any tips are welcome as i am new to ryzen.

- In Windows power plan you'll need to make certain Minimum Processor State is set to a value below 50%. If you don't then the CPU can't go through all its p-states. You can use whichever Windows power plan you'd like.
- Set Performance Bias in BIOS to anything. It optimizes CPU cache and anything is better than nothing.
- Performance Enhancer Level 3 and Level 4 will lock the multiplier and it will not downclock. It's a PBO overclock. Performance Enhancer Level 1 or Level 2 is regular PBO. Any of these will allow the CPU to reach all it's speeds as long as you have Minimum Processor State in Windows power plan to below 50%.
- If you set a manual VCORE voltage then the CPU will behaved as overclocked and will not reach all its speeds. You have to use an offset positive or negative.
- Find the 1usmus DRAM Calculator for Ryzen. Some folks can do 3600MHz with 14-14-14-14 timings while many more have to use 3600MHz 14-15-14-14. Some can get 3666MHz stable with reasonable voltages and very few 3733MHz.
- Get into the Crosshair VII forum.
