Overclocking Results

CPU Overclocking

He Z370XP SLI overclocked our CPU to 4.9GHz quite easily, even with its small VRM. Now, the VRM here uses the same MOSFET count as an 8-phase VCore VRM, but fewer inductors. That means that the board should run a bit cooler than a four phase VRM with the standard MOSFET count amount, and it should be capable of supporting a decent overclock. We set VCore to 1.3v, LLCs to Turbo, XMP to enable, and nothing else.

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 two of the G.Skill sticks to XMP with ease.
