Overclocking Results

CPU Overclocking


For the time being, I was testing how each motherboard can overclock the CPU and what settings to change to get a 4.6GHz overclock using AVX with XMP enabled. While finding where to change voltages might be a bit tricky as the CPU voltages are located inside different menus (Input Voltage in CPU menu while VCore is in the FIVR menu), overclocking the CPU was straight forward.

The new VRM components and the digital nature of Intersil's new PWM don't require too much enhancement of power settings to avoid throttling. Temperatures also stayed pretty low on the CPU, at least compared to some other motherboards.

Memory Overclocking

G.Skill TridentZ RGB 32GB (4x8GB) 3600MHz Kit:

As you can see above, this kit runs fine with XMP on the X299 Taichi.
