The CPU was able to reach a 5GHz overclock with 1.3v with XMP enabled. The motherboard handled most of the other settings, but I did use the second highest level of LLC, and I used XMP mode for the basic overclocking setting. CPU temperatures were also quite low.
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
G.Skill TridentZ 3866MHz C18 8GBx2
GEIL EVO X RGB 3200MHz C16 8GBx2
GEIL EVO FORZA 3200MHz C16 8GBx2
The STRIX Z270G GAMING overclocked all of our kits with ease by just enabling XMP.
