I doubt it's a limit of Z170 chipset since RAM and CPU communicate with each other not through Z170 chipset. So it's more of a Gigabyte issue, could be insufficient power or messed up UEFI, who knows.

I think you misunderstood the paragraph. They were referring to the specific board, and since its a Z170 model people may overclock on it and meet this issue

What LLC are you guys using on Asus Maximus motherboard and any other CPU settings you have changed in the BIOS such as power phase etc?

What does power phase do?

Digital power delivery/control? I think

I'm not very knowledgeable in bios but I am having difficulties getting past 4.6ghz. So I followed 2 guides on how to overclock to 4.6Ghz. https://rog.asus.com/19262015/overclocking/guide-overclocking-core-i7-6700k-on-the-maximus-viii-extreme/ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZe26lv7lJ4

I used realbench and HWMonitor to test stability and passed at 4.6Ghz with cpu voltage of 1.31 and the rest of the settings are from the video above. The max temp reached 74c
I tried pushing to 4.7 because my goal is 4.8 but anything I tried, changed cpu voltage up to 1.40 and I can't finish stability test. Most of up to 1.40 I was getting bsod or freezing.

Another thing is that my dram frequency in cpu-z says 1600Mhz but my ram is 3200Mhz. In asus bios it's set to xmp 3200

My board is the asus premium, ram is Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory

Cpu-z should say 1600mhz, that equals to 3200mhz, its all good there smile.gif
That last guide you linked is a little strange in my book, for most people its enough to just turn the cpu to 46 (4,6ghz) and give it more volt than stock. That guide more or less
over-complicated things (in my mind at least.)

1,31v for you at 4,6ghz is probably just not enough. i'm using the same cooler as you and you have no issues with more voltage. Try for instance 1,35v. And watch the voltage in windows
under load to see if you need more or less LLC (if the volt drops or increases alot.)

What's the advantage of overclocking the cache?

DDR = Double Data Rate. Hence cpu-z will read 3200 as 1600. thumb.gif
