Overclocking Results

 

CPU Overclocking

 

I have decided to reduce the CPU VCore to 1.3v applied with XMP and set 5GHz for the 7700K.

The new 7700K is a master of overclocking, bringing back stability levels at high frequencies unseen since the Sandy Bridge era. The 7700K was very easy to overclock on the Maximus IX Formula even without using the profiles, but if you are unsure of what to set, I highly recommend ASUS's overclocking profiles. ASUS even has a new CPU temperature OC mode, where the multiplier is changed on-the-fly depending on CPU temperature levels.

 

 

Compatible Memory Overclocking Kits

 

In this section, I overclock four memory kits only using XMP, if the kit works then the results are below. I welcome memory vendors to send in their kits to be tested on each motherboard.

ASUS's ROG series is known for memory compatibility, and the results show no incompatibility with a wide range of memory kits.
