Overclocking Results

 

CPU Overclocking

CPU overclocking was simple and straight forward. The first thing I did was set XMP, then I set the cores to 50x, and voltage to 1.3v with LLC level 7. The system booted very easily, and I was able to run my Handbrake test. Even with its tiny VRM, it's able to drive the 7700K to 5GHz.

 

 

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

The STRIX Z270I Gaming overclocked all our kits with ease by just enabling XMP.
