Ok so after a full day of messing with Power Limits and stress testing software I think I've found what needs what.
My power limits are such:
I wan't happy that x265 Benchmark was triggering the power limit when TAU was set to 30 as it was only drawing 203w, Increasing it to 60 fixed that but kept the same temps, I'm still maxing out at 85c (No air con on, about 25c ambient), which is fine for these chips for short periods.
Now with these power setting only Prime65 Smallest/Small FFT, OCCT Small Data set and Linux will trigger the power limit, everything else will run at the full 5Ghz clocks with acceptable temps.
This also has allowed me to drop my vcore due to setting a lower power limit for higher avx loads.
Spent 2 days testing everything, it is much better than AVX offsets for sure, a little tedious testing each program you use to see which triggers the power limit, but hopefully now I've done the testing you'll know where to start.
