Overclocking Results

 

CPU Overclocking

 

I have decided to reduce the CPU VCore to 1.25v applied with XMP and set 4.8GHz for the 7700K, since I ended up degrading my 6700K when using a borderline voltage across dozens of motherboards, and I want to use the same CPU for all reviews.

The CPU was stable at 4.8Ghz with 1.25v; an overclock I believe most 7700K CPUs are capable of achieving.

 

 

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.

 

Corsair Dominator Platinum 3200MHz C16 8GBx2

The Z270X-Gaming 9 overclocks memory very easily, and I am told that it is one of AORUS's better memory overclocking motherboards, a claim I will investigate in another article.
