Now let’s see what performance can be expected from our configurations with their CPU and memory overclocked. We reached the same overclocking results with all these mainboards: a CPU clock rate of 4.5 GHz (with the voltage fixed at 1.150 volts) and a memory clock rate of 2133 MHz (with timings of 9-11-11-31-2N according to the XMP profile).
As expected, the mainboards deliver similar performance with the CPU and memory overclocked. Alas, we didn’t see that at the default settings. The standings change from test to test, but the gaps are never large. The ASUS Gryphon Z87 is no different from the others because we manually increased the CPU power limit and its frequency multiplier doesn’t drop at high loads.
