GIGABYTE AORUS Z270 Overclocking Guide

I have seen a lot of overclocking guides in my time, but I really like this one that GIGABYTE has put together for its new AORUS Z270 motherboards. If you are unfamiliar with navigating the AORUS UEFI, it clearly shows you settings you need and where those are located in the UEFI. While overclocking these new Kaby Lake processors is not incredibly intricate, there are a few things to know along the way particular to the AORUS motherboards. I would highly suggest using manual vCore voltages instead of adaptive while setting CPU Load Line Calibration to "Turbo." That helped us assuredly in GIGABYTE Z270X Gaming 7 LGA 1151 Motherboard Review. Also worth mentioning is that GIGABYTE even discusses processor de-lidding in its guide.
