Overclocking Results

 

CPU Overclocking

He Z370 AORUS Gaming 5 overclocked our CPU to 4.9GHz with ease. We set VCore to 1.300v, internal and external LLC to Turbo (that was maximum for external), CPU ratio to 49x, XMP to enable, and just restarted. Everything worked perfectly. However, if you are going to overclock the CPU this high, I would suggest positive airflow in your case or a fan blowing on the VRMs.

 

 

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

 

As you can see above, the Dominator kit worked perfectly.

 

G.Skill TridentZ RGB 3600MHz C16 8GBx2

The board easily overclocked the Dominator Platinum RAM to 3200MHz.
