Test Setup and Overclocking

MSI X299 XPOWER Gaming AC Review

Test Setup

Intel i9 7900X
Corsair LPX 3200 - Stock Tests
Corsair Dominator Platinum ROG Edition - OC Tests
G.Skill Trident-Z 3600 - OC Tests
Corsair RM1000i
Corsair MP500 512GB
Corsair H110i GT
Windows 10 


The XPOWER overclocks easily and well, with our Core i7-7900X hitting 4.5 GHz on its 10 cores. More than enough performance for almost any application. The memory was more difficult to get running at high speeds with the CPU overclocked, so we might see a slight drop in performance on those tests that rely more heavily upon memory bandwidth for their results. The volts were able to be kept amazingly low to keep the clock stable. When we saw the performance results start to appear we did come back and try increasing this but it sadly made no difference.
