Overclocking the Asus B360-g Mobo.

I've wanted a micro atx Mobo that is from Asus so it will support aurasync but also actually have a rgb header as the z370-g does not but supports full OC.

 

Im using the i5-8600k

Is there any possible way to overclock this cpu using the b360-g from Asus or are there any other mobos from Asus which supports aurasync+OC and has a rgb header that is still micro atx?

 

Sorry if I sound dumb, this is my first thread.

Unfortunately through normal means it is not possible, but poke around for a potential "all core turbo" feature to enable.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

BCLK overclocking is possible, but it won't give you a huge performance improvement.

Does it need to be aura? Or are you also satisfied with for example mystic?

Mystic should be fine, does mystic sync with coolermaster?

they are partnered with them, so it should. and my rgb fans and cooler are controllable in mystic, so...
