Overclocking Results

CPU Overclocking

ASRock Z270 Extreme4 Motherboard Review 104 | TweakTown.com

The CPU was able to reach a 5GHz overclock with 1.3v with XMP enabled. I used Level 2 LLC with 1.3v set, which resulted in a voltage a little over 1.3v, but temperatures didn't result in CPU throttling.

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.
