For the time being, I was testing how each motherboard can overclock the CPU and examining what settings to change to get a 4.6GHz overclock using AVX with XMP enabled. I enabled XMP, set OC mode to expert, increased frequency to x46, set input voltage at 1.75v, LLC to level 2, increased OCP, set VCore to 1.225v, and then rebooted without problem. The system was very stable.
G.Skill TridentZ RGB 32GB (4x8GB) 3600MHz Kit:
The board ran 3600Mhz on 32GB like a charm.
GEIL EVO SPEAR (4x8GB) 3200MHz Kit:
GEIL's kit ran at 3200Mhz at 32GB with ease.
