Go into bios and drop fsb bus say 186 and turn speed spectrum on , set voltage to 1.35v with v droop and leave memory as is in 2:8
As just a safe starting point and work the fsb up till more voltage is needed as I am boosting from 2.8Ghz down clocked to 4.3 turbo like that and it runs good for me in dual channel mode https://valid.x86.fr/mr8z5x
with out the high heat of full clocks all the time , mine has 2 turbo mode (performance turbo leave off) and I am thinking of adding a little voltage to the fsb just for the 3400Mhz clock speed as single thread is like gaming I guess so it should match a 1600X in IPC for gaming .
