I've seen several people asking about OC'ing the GA-Z170X-UD5 TH, so here is my settings.
Stable Overclocking The GA-Z170X-UD5 TH to 4.8 Ghz.
1st, Many Thanks To Jerivalu and his Installation Guide.
USE Jerivalu’s GUIDE 1ST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BIOS Version F5.
DO NOT USE THE GIGABYTE OC TOOLS IN WINDOWS!!!!! USE ONLY MANUAL BIOS SETTINGS!!!!!
I STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU HAVE YOU HAVE A VERY GOOD CPU COOLER OR A HYDRO SYSTEM!!!!!
1. All settings are changed in the M.I.T. section of the Bios.
2. Go to Advanced Frequency Settings.
Change the CPU Clock Ratio to "47".
Change the Extreme Memory Profile to "Profile 1"
3. Go back to Advanced Frequency Settings, then Advance CPU Core Settings.
Change the Uncore Frequency to “46”.
Change the Turbo Ratio for each Core to “48”.
Go back to M.I.T.
4. Go to Advance Voltage Settings, then Advance Power Settings.
Change CPU Vcore Loadline Calibration to “High”.
Go back to Advance Voltage Settings.
5. Go to CPU Core Voltage Control.
Change CPU Vcore to “1.39v”.
Change CPU VCCIO to “1.150v”
Change CPU System Agent Voltage to “1.250v”.
6. Save and Exit Bios saving new settings, reboot and go back into Bios.
Go to M.I.T and you should see the changes on the main M.I.T. screen.

Anything above these settings caused reboots or lockups in OS X and BOSD in Win 10.
So far, no issues in OS x or Win 10 while gaming for several hours last night.
Good luck and may the OC Gods smile upon you!
Everyone needs to use extreme caution on these overclock settings and also realize that no two chips are the same (what vcore works for you may not work for me for stable etc). For my chip the cutoff point was the 4.5 and 4.6ghz range for low vcore and low temps. On 4.5ghz I was able to have use 1.31 vcore while 4.6ghz needed 1.36. The v-core difference in temperature under load was over 15C different and personally I'd rather have my chip run cooler/near stock voltage than have the extra 100mhz.
I'm still using 3423 from multibeast and as I use this machine for work I'm erroring on the side caution- if it ain't broken....Hey, Jerivalu. What version of Clover are you using? I'm running 3526.
