CPU Overclocking

The Z390 Aorus Master overclocked our CPU to 5.2GHz and temperatures didn't exceed 90C, which is our new standard. We set VCore of 1.332v, LLC of Turbo, and enabled XMP. We also disabled C-States. We had no issue. GIGABYTE says this board is officially supporting memory up to 4133MHz, so if you want to go that high go off their QVL list, and know that for now, they don't support higher. The best thing you can do to get the most performance is to get a really lovely 3600-3866MHz kit and tighten the timings like they do in extreme overclocking. Overall, the VRM here allows the CPU to attain the 5.2GHz OC without an AVX offset and run through our quick and Handbrake AVX real-world OC test.
