Overclocking Results

 

CPU Overclocking

The CPU was able to reach a 5GHz overclock with 1.3v with XMP enabled. I was able to run Handbrake, and encode a 6GB 4K video without topping 80C or crashing.

 

 

 

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

Almost every single Z270 motherboard I have tested works fine with the kits above using only XMP, and the Z270 Gaming M7 is no exception.
