Overclocking Results

CPU Overclocking

If you hadn't already heard, the 6950X 10-core $1700 beast isn't the best overclocker. I cannot validate CPU frequency anywhere near 5GHz, and I cannot even boot at 4.5GHz, but I can run 4.4GHz on all cores. I have decided to change how I do the overclocking section and determine exactly what it takes to push the CPU to this maximum stable frequency on the different motherboards I test.

ASUS's Rampage V Edition 10 does provide some help when it comes to overclocking, and it should since it is an ROG motherboard. It was easy to overclock the system to 4.4GHz, 3.5Ghz Cache, and 3200MHz memory using Corsair's Dominator Platinum kit. Setting XMP will help set up an overclock by changing core frequency settings to 4GHz, and from there you can increase the frequency. I did manually set VCore and other voltages.

My 32GB (4x8GB), Dominator Platinum 3200MHzC16 kit from Corsair, ran great with XMP on this motherboard.

My 32GB (4x8GB) G.Skill TridentZ 3200MHz CAS 14 32GB quad channel kit also ran great on the Rampage V Edition 10.
