You need to absorb the fact that the 1700 is rated at 65W because of the 3200MHz all core boost, once you overclock to the 3.9-4GHz range, it's an oven.

When you say more realistic? Is it in the +20 range? Does auto decrease the reported temps? If so that could be dangerous if you are pushing 1.4+ vcore
