    Why is there no vPro in the top chipset then?

    £115 for a non-overclocking motherboard is good value now? That's going up against A320, and those boards come in at half the price

    LMAO,£115 for a motherboard which is stuck running 2666MHZ DDR4 at best?? I expect reviews in general to quietly forget that.

    It seems to work with XMP profiles, maybe

    We have deliberately let the Z370 overclock the Core i3-8350K chip, raising the all-core speed from 4.0GHz to 5.0GHz.

    B360, which doesn't have this feature and is therefore represented at stock CPU speed, also doesn't allow you to overclock the memory, so 3,600MHz it is on our fastest memory set.
    I say maybe because the RAM used is a 3.2 GHz set ("G.Skill 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4-3,200"), so I dunno how hexus ran it at 3.6 GHz without overclocking it. The K chip used shouldn't affect this, since it's only rated for 2.4 GHz RAM at stock speeds

    ETA: unless hexus used different RAM, that would explain it

    Good question. Methodology states;

    Memory G.Skill 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4-3,200
    Memory Speed DDR4-2400
    Yet overclocking tests state;

    B360, which doesn't have this feature and is therefore represented at stock CPU speed, also doesn't allow you to overclock the memory, so 3,600MHz it is on our fastest memory set.
    I'm guessing that the memory was swapped out for a different set, even with XMP profiles if they were available wouldn't take the RAM up to 3,600MHz, only to 3,200MHz based on the set shown in the methodology.

    I'm interpreting "so 3,600MHz it is on our fastest memory set." as meaning they swapped RAM
