We used the EVGA Z370 Micro motherboard … Setup in the BIOS was super easy. All I had to so was to select the XMP profile 1 and made sure the Memory Frequency was set to 3600 MHz. All other settings were left untouched on AUTO.

CPU-Z reports the DRAM frequency at 1801MHz which is correct for DDR4-3600. Memory timings is also correctly reported at 16-18-18-36.
