During processor and memory overclocking different mainboard models demonstrated different results. They are summed up in the following table:
ASRock Z77 OC Formula overclocked the processor to the highest possible level, increased its frequency and configured all necessary memory timings. Taking into account that in equal testing conditions this board turned out the fastest of all we tested, the combination of achievements makes it an undefeated champion in nominal as well as overclocked mode.
High performance is a very important parameter for a mainboard, but it is really interesting to see what price we have to pay for this success. Let’s take a look at the power consumption tests.
