Overclocking Results

 

CPU Overclocking

The Z370 Taichi was capable of overclocking my 8700K to 4.9GHz. With BIOS P1.17 BETA, LLC levels work well on this motherboard, if you have an earlier BIOS (I had P1.13) version you should update if you plan on overclocking. I was able to stabilize voltage around 1.29v. Memory overclocking was very simple and just requires enabling XMP, you won't have to manually set voltages or anything, and I believe the motherboard has a switch to physically enable XMP without enter the UEFI.

 

 

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

 

The board easily overclocked the Dominator Platinums to 3200MHz as you can see in the image at the top of the page.

 

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

The motherboard also overclocked the 4x8GB 3600MHz TridentZ RGB kit with ease.
