Is TW Warhammer 2 compiled to use AVX /AVX2?

At the moment I am reconsidering my thermals for i7 7700k, as the summer heat has caused an overall increase in CPU temperatures. I decided to lower the AVX-offset via Asus Bios, therefore running it at 4.7Ghz.
Many overclockers argue that games are not using AVX instruction sets, so is Warhammer 2 not compiled to use them?
Testing the frequency myself I get other results with 3K also, here about 30% of the time, AVX registers seems to get used. So is TW using AVX instructions after all?
