They can and I am sure he can post a screen shot at 4.5ghz, however it will not be stable until temps come down C3 chips scale with temps more than they will scale with voltage. Even C1 pre-release chips can post and run 4200ish easily enough with enough voltage, but the temperatures is what releases them.
