Oh ok, I'm not used to seeing those sort of temps, been running a delidded 8700k for a while now.
When the brain logic kicks in you'd expect 12 cores at those boost rates to run that warm.
Undervotling is seriously a waste of time, it doesn't help performance at all, and in my case introduced issues with idle voltages.
I have set a small offset of -0.00625v, with LLC 1, multicore performance is where it should be, same single core boost speeds.
Of course temps play a part, due to PB2, but either way both temps and undervolting causes performance loss, just theat undervolting can introduce other problems.
