There is no such thing as "correct values", and there are no numbers you can just "plug in" that will work on every system. Not even on identical hardware. Every CPU is different. Every motherboard is different. Every stick of RAM is different. And ALL those things will have an effect on what kind of overclock can be stable, how much voltage will be required and how hot things get. If you want to overclock, you need to do the work. It is a PROCESS, not a set of numbers.

99.999% of the BIOS and overclocking settings on Kaby lake are the same as they were for Skylake, so these two when taken together should give you all the tools you need to establish and validate your optimal overclock if you can take the time to utilize them. If you can't, then honestly you should just leave things at the stock configuration. Overclocking is an enthusiast endeavor. You can't get there on easy street.

I agree, you need to find the settings on your own to get the most optimal oc, no chip is the same, i have been trying to figure out how to get 4.5ghz stable out of a pentium e5300 and im still currently searching for optimal settings by trial and error, oc is litteraly just trial and error, we can give you baseline values but it isnt guaranteed that your chip will reach our "baseline" value
