So, with Ryzen 2600 on stock, max speed is 3.9GHz, yes? Because on stock I was reading 4.2GHz on HWMonitor.... but now I understand that maybe it's the same thing.
Just use the recommended app - HWINFO64. Uninstall others. Our non-X Ryzens do not have PBO. When OC'ed it boosts to the highest value set in BIOS. In your case, 4.1GHz. Better than stock. Set Windows Power plan to Balance and Minimum Processor State in Advance setting to around 25%, so that both Clocks and Vcore downclock. My 2700 downclocks to 1.5GHz/0.8V or about 13W at idle. I keep mine at stock cos it boosts to 4.1GHz.
You got a nice motherboard. It can easily take a 7nm cpu.

My 2.5 years old delidded 7980xe @ 4600mhz all core with 49ns memorylatency (4000c16 twekaed) is faster than 3950x max overclocked on water in every scenario. Pretty good for a ancient cpu
In gaming it has no chance vs my new 10900k @ 5400mhz and 4600c16 tweaked memory. ~35ns memorylatency.
