1600x is there a temperature offset? Also what are the recommended voltage on OC?

People say there is a 20C offset. Though mine idles around 35C i can only assume either the software subtracts the offset automatically or the offset never existed or was removed with the latest drivers? Just wondering if i could get some direct facts about it so i know whats what. Also I'm running my 1600x at 4Ghz 1.35v stable, is there a recommended voltage to run 4.1 or 4.2Ghz? Thanks

Most programs, including AMD Ryzen Master, have compensated for that 20°C offset and report the correct temperature.

As far as overclocking, most all Ryzen processors top out at 4ghz, a limitation of the process node that has been somewhat refined in Threadripper, getting beyond 4ghz with any voltage is not guaranteed.

Run your CPU are 3.8 GHz max or you risk a very early demise. I have heard of a few overclockers who have suffered problems you would not like.
