The Z370 Gaming-ITX/ac overclocks like a beast. I was surprised to find just a strong VRM onboard, but it does a great job of unleashing the beast that is the 8700K. With 1.325v set, LLC level 2, and XMP enabled we had no problems hitting out 4.9Ghz overclock with 3200Mhz memory.
With only two DIMMs, the motherboard will overclock memory with ease since it's one DIMM per channel, the data lines can be directly routed to the CPU and memory slots.
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.
G.Skill 8GBx2 3600MHz Trident-Z RGB Kit
The board easily overclocked the Dominator Platinum RAM to 3200MHz and Trident-Z to 3600MHz.
