Went into the option and set my previous settings
[39 multiplier]
[disabled all the spread+ enhancements]
[DOCP 14-14-14-34]
[CPU core 1.35V]
[CPU SOC 1.1125]
[went to digi+ and upped the current % from 100% ->140%]
[tweaker's paradise: turned off MI Skew]

booted back into windows and unzipped again...no lock up and everything is relatively normal.

Why would auto lead to such a bad case vs manual?

You'll have to test setting by setting to see what caused the lock-up, I don't know what was changed in the latest BIOS releases. If your loads are primarily single or few-threaded, stick with defaults + XFR. If they're heavily multi-threaded go for the 3.9 GHz all-core setting.
