Overclocking Results

CPU Overclocking


For the time being, I am testing how each motherboard can overclock the CPU and what settings to change to get a 4.6GHz overclock using AVX with XMP enabled. I set XMP to enable, all cores to 4.6GHz, LLC to level 2 (this was done automatically), reset input voltage to 1.75v from auto of 2.1v (this was also done automatically) when x46 is set for the CPU multiplier, I also set VCore of 1.185v. Everything worked great.

Memory Overclocking

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


Worked like a charm at 3600MHz.

GEIL EVO SPEAR (4x8GB) 3200MHz Kit:


No problem running the GEIL kit at XMP either.
