1800x Dynamic overclocking

At stock my processor is not going above 3.7Ghz under full load.
I have overclocked CPU and Ram to 4Ghz & 2666Mhz (stable) (good performance) but do not want my system to run 24/7 at high speeds.
Even tried 4.1Ghz (stable). Temps under full load never exceeded 70°C
Is dynamic overclocking possible? If yes than how far can I go and what setting to do?
I do video editing and animation so require higher speeds only while doing render and previews.

PS: I am not worried about heating as along with Master Liquid 240 I have a big AC to cool my tiny editing bay and ambient temps can drop to 8°C (in summer, never checked in winters).

It's not supposed to go over 3.7ghz in full stress. When one or maybe two cores are used it can go to 4ghz.

Use p-state OC instead of fixed multiplier OC. You will have full power when needed and reduced freq / voltage at idle.
