Needs more CAD
GIGABYTE are now renowned for their overclocking series of boards that manage not only to appeal to the extreme overclocker, but also the serious gamer or power user. The Z87 and Z97 boards managed to achieve this, and now for the first time since X58 the OC line-up has come back to an X chipset, Intel’s “main” platform, X99. The board comes package in a nice and large premium box, as often seen in GIGABYTE’S top tier boards. The back of the board features a nice...

I actually found the PSC overclocking on the Z97 Mpower to be the best I've ever seen from MSI. Unfortunately due to some issues with memory dying I have been put off using the board, even if only for superstition. Efficiency not terrible but not amazing either, no worse than Z87 from my testing.*RTLs are a touch off in that screenshot but I did manage to fix it next boot and the time is not too bad for the OS and waza I was using.Of course with those same sticks I can do...
