We also performed the same tests during processor and memory overclocking. Almost on all tested mainboards the CPU was overclocked to 4.5 GHz and the memory worked at 1564-1570 MHz frequency with 6-6-6-18-1T timings. The only exception were the EVGA H55 and Zotac H55-ITX WiFi mainboards, where we could only push the CPU to 3.9 GHz, while the memory worked at 1360 MHz with 6-6-6-16-1T timings, and our today’s hero that stopped at 3.4 GHz CPU frequency. I would like to remind you that Intel DH55TC mainboard wasn’t included into this test run, because it doesn’t overclock processors at all.
Here, the mainboards fall into three categories depending on the CPU frequency achieved. The mainboards with low CPU frequency cannot match the others even in the gaming tests which focus on the graphics subsystem performance. Anyway, overclockability is not a decisive factor for a small mini-ITX mainboard. It is just a nice bonus. Therefore, we are not going to blame Intel DH57JG for its lagging behind in this test.
