Overclocking Results

CPU Overclocking

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, and temperatures were quite good. I should mention I am using a new CPU for overclocking results; I found that one of my ES CPUs does 5GHz on low volts stable.

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.

The Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming-ITX/ac only has two DIMMs, and memory overclocking is excellent and easy to accomplish.
