The Z370 GAMING PRO CARBON AC has a decent VRM, and since I had it actively cooled, I had no issues overclocking. I set VCore to 1.3v with mode 4 LLC, increase current capability for the PWM, and enabled XMP. The kit had zero issues overclocking up to where we expect it to be, although we don't know how it will do with a delidded CPU or under subzero cooling.
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.
The board easily overclocked the Dominator Platinums to 3200MHz and the TridentZ to 3600MHz using just XMP. G.Skill TridentZ RGB 3600MHz 32GB (2x8GB) and Corsair Dominator Platinum 3200MHz C16 (8GBx2) overclocked with ease.
