CPU Overclocking

The Z390 Aorus Xtreme overclocked our CPU to 5.2GHz and performed well in pretty much every day, including our average FPS, which is quite high if you look at some other board reviews. We set CPU multiplier to 52x, cache auto goes to 47x, but a lot of other boards set this to 43x by default so look out for that. Then we set LLC to turbo, enabled XMP, and set a VCore of 1.325v. That's all we had to do.
