Most of them are quite marketed to handle overclocking aswell. The Z87 / Z97 Motherboard VRM's don't really matter as they used to do since the voltage controller is on the CPU. You can basically overclock the same amount with almost every "decent" Z97 board. It's a shame they didn't remove it tbh.

On the contrary, I've got a z77x ud3h and it's probably not as good in terms of components as say a gaming 7 but it still overclocks just fine.

My gut feeling is you only need soc force for ln2 overclocking

Ok, so i guess GIGABYTE GAMING 7 it is. Is the BIOS better than what i would be on my F2-A75M HD2? On this one to adjust voltage i have to set an offset over the stock, which i doesnt tell me. also NB is locked tongue.gif i wasl eanign towards MSi as their BIOs implementation is nice, same with ASUS, but im not sure on GIGABYTE

I am just hoping that Microcenter have both the 4790k and Formula mobo at the same time..

You are 100% sure? i wont have any stupid issues like i currently do with this board?

To be perfectly honest 1.45v probably wouldn't kill it so long as it's delidded, but if it's delidded you won't get a replacement likely

I think I might do that then without delidding. If I have to up the voltage to 1.6 then so be it as long as they give me a new one.

It's intuitive to think that Soc Force is optimal for air cooling. In reality SOC Force is ideal for Liquid Nitrogen Overclocking and other extreme overclocking too. The Z97 chipset in whole is designed only for overclocking since it's the only extra feature it has over the downgraded chipset.

There are some mediocre boards on Z97 that will not be good even on air. But there are boards that are not SOC force that are exceptional on Air or Water. What they may lack is some extra features extreme overclockers want or excessive redundancies.

Among the most exceptional for air or water are the ones on 8 digital phases and rest components being adequate. They can even be decent for LN2 overclocking in some cases and one could call them almost unnecessary on air if they are too good.


PS. Mpower is worse than several of the gaming boards of GB.

For all those building a new system around DC with a new motherboard, I recommend checking the return policy timeframe from the retailer you are going to buy from. Otherwise, it will be sitting for weeks without being able to test it, and if it turns out to be defective, you'll be forced to RMA through the boards maker and that could take a very long time. Better off waiting until you have the CPU in your hands.

Well lets be clear, 1.4v and 1.6v are worlds apart my friend lol.  The point is Intel have been known to replace CPUs in the past that have died from voltage, I think munaim1 managed to get a replacement cpu from intel after his died.  Obviously they wont replace a delidded or lapped cpu.

 

Also I dont think you will stand a chance running a cpu at any load at 1.6v without delidding it at the very least, heck I think youd struggle on custom water & delidded to run 1.6v 24.7.  Plus that voltage will kill it.  Just a matter of time.
