The X99P-SLI can take my 5960X to 5GHz just like other motherboards.

Stability is tested by Handbrake. I was able to run 4.5GHz and run the test. The overclock requires a 1.9v Input voltage and 1.3v VCore and 1.2v cache voltage.

Overclocking the cache is done after I enable the extra pins in the socket. I was able to get the cache to 4.3GHz while the core was at 4.5GHz.

Memory overclocking consists of checking if XMP is working. I was able to get the Dominator Platinum kit to its rated XMP speed, 3200MHz.
