Overclocking Results


CPU Overclocking


I have decided to reduce the CPU VCore to 1.4v applied (I will measure real VCore at the output capacitors), and see how high I can validate. On most boards, it's 5GHz.




I wasn't surprised when the Z170X-Ultra Gaming hit 5GHz; it's an overclocking motherboard, so 5GHz is to be expected.





Stability testing worked well; I was able to overclock stable to 4.7GHz.



Compatible Memory Overclocking Kits


Test 1: 2x4GB (8GB) Corsair Dominator Platinum 3200MHz C16




The Dominator Platinum worked without a hitch.


Test 2: 2x4GB (8GB) G.Skill TridentZ 3733MHz C17




The TridentZ worked well, even at their high speed of 3.733GHz.
