Overclocking

ASUS CROSSHAIR VIII HERO (AMD X570) Motherboard Review 66 | TweakTown.com

We are looking for the optimum performance, and given that we are using the included cooling solution, you should be able to overclock quite a bit higher, as we hit thermal limits. We did notice VCore reporting was kind of accurate, and we noticed higher temperatures at the same VCore reported on other motherboards, so it does look like ASUS has optimized software reporting of VCore to be closer to the actual value. We got our best performance at 4.25GHz, at 4.3GHz we were thermal throttling, but we were also stable. Memory overclocking was also very easy; we just enabled D.O.C.P.
