Overclocking Results

CPU Overclocking

gigabyte-z270x-gaming-soc-motherboard-review

CPU overclocking was simple and straightforward. I set XMP, set CPU ratio to x50, VCore to 1.3v, LLC to Turbo, FCLK and Uncore didn't need to be changed as they were already where I wanted them (1GHz and 42x). The motherboard's VRM and auto-rules are top notch, and I have no issues producing a stable 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.

The Z270X-GAMING SOC overclocked all of our kits with ease by just enabling XMP, including the TridentZ 3866MHz kit.
