Overclocking Results


CPU Overclocking




The Z270-WS was able to push my CPU to 5GHz with 1.34v VCore under load; I am not sure what power metric I was missing in the UEFI, but something was keeping the current limited.


This is a workstation motherboard, so perhaps ASUS has balanced everything for longevity, as while I had to use more VCore to OC the CPU (very little more), the CPU temperatures at 5GHz were a bit lower than boards where I use less VCore. It was a bit weird.



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




GEIL EVO X RGB 3200MHz C16 8GBx2








TridentZ 16GB 3866MHz C18 8GBx2




The Z270-WS overclocked all of our kits with ease.
