Overclocking Results

 

CPU Overclocking

The Z270X-Designare is actually quite good at overclocking, and that is surprising because of its tiny VRM. However, the VRM delivers, and so does the BIOS, as I didn't really have to mess with many settings to achieve a 5GHz overclock with DRAM on XMP.

 

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-Designare overclocked all of our kits, including the high-end 3866MHz G.Skill TridentZ kit.
