We’ve already seen our processor do 5.1Ghz easily and the experience is the same here. Overclocking Comet Lake is pretty much standard Set Multiplier > Set Voltage > Stabilize kinda fare and while that doesn’t change in the ProArt Z490 Creator 10G, the idea of overclocking on a professional scenario just doesn’t do right with me. If you’re rendering client projects for hours and you are dealing with deadline-sensitive materials, you want stability and an overclock is simply a gamble in this sense. Still, I should be free to do what I please with my motherboard and ASUS does not hold back. Despite the relatively slimmer VRM cooling, we tested our ProArt Z490 Creator 10G in AIDA64 stress loads versus our Prime95 12K to stress the VRMs.
This is board is capable of overclocking if and should you want to and the power delivery on the board is decent enough to handle reasonable loads but again, as mentioned this board, if used on a professional case, I highly suggest sticking with a moderate overclock or keeping unrestrained Turbo on a more agreeable voltage.
