GIGABYTE Z270X-UD5 Motherboard Review (Page 7)

Overclocking Results

CPU Overclocking


CPU overclocking was very easy to accomplish. I set LLC to Turbo, VCore to 1.3v, enabled XMP, and set the CPU multiplier to 50x. The motherboard did a good job of handling the overclock.

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




The Z270X-UD5 overclocked all our kits with ease by just enabling XMP.
