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 and a memory clock rate of 2133 MHz with timings of 9-11-11-31-2N. The only exception was the Intel DZ87KLT-75K as it set the timings at 9-11-11-31-1N.
Like MSI mainboards, Intel ones were often a little bit slower in comparison with similar products from other brands. This difference has been shrinking over time, so the Intel DZ87KLT-75K is now first in some tests and last in others. The gap from the other mainboards is really small, both at the default and overclocked settings. The different timings do not affect its performance much.
