During processor and memory overclocking, different mainboards accomplished different results, which we summed up in the following table for your convenience:
Since MSI Z77 MPOWER didn’t allow us to overclock our test CPU to its maximum frequency, it appears in the lower part of the diagrams for the most part. However, I would like to stress that in some cases it performed best of all other mainboards within the same overclocking interval, for example, in Adobe Photoshop CS5 and SuperPi tests. Moreover, it performed better than we had expected in the gaming tests. Of course, the difference between MSI Z77 MPOWER and other mainboard models is minimal, but at least it gives us every right to state with all certainty that MSI Z77 MPOWER has no performance issues, if you are using the proper BIOS version, of course.
