Overclocking Results

CPU Overclocking

For the time being, I am testing how each motherboard can overclock the CPU and what settings to change to get a 4.6GHz overclock using AVX with XMP enabled. I set XMP to enable, all cores to 4.6GHz, LLC to level 2, reset input voltage to 1.75v from auto of 2.1v when x46 is set for the CPU multiplier, I also set VCore of 1.225v. Everything worked great.

Memory Overclocking

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

It worked like a charm at 3600MHz.

GEIL EVO SPEAR (4x8GB) 3200MHz Kit:

There was no problem running the GEIL kit at XMP either.
