Overclocking Results

 

CPU Overclocking

CPU overclocking was simple and straight forward. However, I wasn't able to run my Dominator Platinum kit at XMP settings with the CPU at 5GHz. Setting the CPU multiplier to x50 and the voltage to 1.35v with LLC resulted in 1.3v under load, but this little voltage bump is to be expected with the smaller VRM.

 

 

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 Z270GTN overclocked all of our kits with ease by just enabling XMP and bumping VCCSA to 1.1875v (maximum in the UEFI). It was not able to overclock the TridentZ 3866MHz with XMP.
