The CPU could reach a 5GHz overclock with 1.3v with XMP enabled. I used the highest level of LLC and set the frequency mode to fixed. The motherboard was very easy to overclock, and it's meant to overclock. If you want to do extreme overclocking and need a place to start, MSI has an extreme overclocking guide just for this motherboard.
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 Z270 XPower Gaming Titanium overclocked all of my memory kits with ease, something not all motherboards can do.
