GIGABYTE Z97X-SOC Review

GIGABYTE Z97X-SOC

Overclocking:

Overclocking experience on the GIGABYTE Z97X-SOC is pretty similar to the Z87X-OC from last year. That was expected given that both the motherboards are only marginally different in terms of core features and design. This year’s model has slightly smaller CPU VRM as compared to last year’s model but that does not seem to have affected its overclocking ability much; not at least with air cooling. We’ve been able to hit 4.7 GHz at max on our Core i7-4770K with 1.3v set in the BIOS. This is pretty in-line with what we’ve been able to hit on several Z87-based motherboards.

The overclocking process was fairly straightforward and since we know behaviour of our chip, so we were able to hit a stable 4.7 GHz overclock in only two boots.
