@SouthpawJoe definitely play around w/ a manual OC. The advertised 4.7 boost is almost misleading, yes, you can hit 4.7, and the CPU will from time to time under PBO, but virtually every application and game these days is multi-threaded enough to where you will never hit 4.7 w/ any sort of consistency. My manual OCs are 4.5/4.4 @ 1.32 when gaming and 4.3/4.2 @ 1.22 for everyday use w/ [email protected] running 24/7 when not gaming.
So I tried 4.4ghz @ 1.32v with LLC2 for gaming and while playing CoD the temps never got above 63 (occasional spike to 67). Ran Cinebench R20 and scored 7848 but the temp did hit 80 which isn't too bad I don't think for that test. Idles at 37 degrees (it idled at 33 degrees with it all on auto). No idea if any of this is good or bad, or if that R20 Cinebench score is good nor bad as well.
