Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 7 Motherboard Review

We will outline the performance increases that can be obtained from using the Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 7 motherboard to overclock our system. Our overclocked processor frequency was 4.8GHz and memory speed was maintained at 3200MHz.

As a performance comparison, we have included the overclocked results from three other Z170 motherboards. The maximum overclocked configuration achieved with each board was a 4800MHz (48 x 100MHz) processor frequency and 3200MHz CL16 memory speed.

  1. Bought it and am loving it. The one complaint I have is that the mouse lags like hell in UEFI. I haven’t tried a different mouse with it yet though (currently using Cougar 550M). The SB audio is superb.

  2. how the settings for memory on the mainboard? is it stable with xmp auto settings?
