True that it isn't a lot, but this is OCN where people will spend big $ on custom water & unlocked cpus for performance increases, then get 1333mhz memory & wonder why someone else is getting better numbers with a lower clocked cpu.

Let me rephrase it since it is obvious that every board can do it. How easy to overclock memory on ASRock and MSI boards compared to Asus and Gigabyte?

Yeah, that's true, but there seems to be a massive jump in prices for everything higher than 2133MHz memory, and it seems like a lot of money to spend on such a little improvement over 2133MHz.

Get 1337 biggrin.gif Mhz memory, problem solved thumb.gif

On a more serious note

From an older Tom's review


Quote:
A 2612 MT/s data rate is extremely remarkable compared to processors of old, and the fact that ASRock holds four modules stable at that setting with a $165 motherboard is similarly striking. So striking, in fact, that Asus called us out for not checking ASRock's XMP voltage more thoroughly. A retest at 1.650 V resulted in a maximum four-DIMM stable data rate of DDR3-2559 in Prime95. Two-DIMM results remained at DDR3-2700. We should also note that Asus isn't completely blameless here, as its P8Z77-V Pro showed 1.659 V in its own UEFI at the memory's XMP value of 1.650 V.

ECS sets a new standard for itself by winning the two-DIMM overclock tests, while any overclocking deficits for Biostar’s offset DIMMs appears significant only when four modules are installed.

So ASUS and ASRock being great "Load XMP and Go" board might have to do with their default voltage settings in XMP.

if you bench, I would have to recommend the Asus or Asrock, but for daily setups any of the boards will be fine.

UP5.
Its a workstation class board.

And gigabytes warranty and support are fantastic.

This is true as well, unless someone is big on benchmarks or really wants the best, I don't want to recommend expensive stuff either. When most of OCN are gamers & really won't see that much difference the samsung green makes an easy recommendation.
Same for motherboards, most are happy with 4.5 - 4.8Ghz out of their sandy & ivy cpus, pretty much every z77 board can do that, it's more about the features, price & RMA (I like asus but they can get hard to recommend with some of the horror story RMA threads, although there's at least one for every manufacturer).

Look man I don't have the proof that doesn't mean I'm trying to lying or misguiding.
I said what I saw,in most scenarios memory clocking in up5 isn't that impressive,its actually tough to get high memory oc even in up7 and that has been proved and like I said before if after sales support of asus is bad in your are then I'm sorry.

I like the MSI Power Z77 board. It looks cool.

They are all good board, but I can only justify the prices of MPower (when on sale) and UP5.

MPower board is good for the money but most recently MSI has dropped the ball on their BIOS operation. I hope MSI fixes it fast. The MSI also is very picky with the ram you over clock. MSI Mpower Z77 doesn't work very well with Samsung Green 30nm HYKO IC based sticks.

Mpower does work well though but MSI needs to work on BIOS.

I really like that Gigabyte UP5 MB and at times when over clocking with my MB and having problems with BCLK over clocking and memory over clocking I feel like selling the Mpower cheap and buying the UP5.
