We will outline the performance increases that can be obtained from using the Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H-BK motherboard to overclock our system. Our overclocked processor frequency was 4.5GHz and memory speed was 2400MHz.
As a performance comparison, we have included the overclocked results from two other Z97 motherboards. The maximum overclocked configuration achieved with each board was a 4500MHz (45 x 100MHz) processor frequency and 2400MHz CL10 memory speed.
Overclocked performance is as expected; Gigabyte’s Z97X-UD5H-BK is happy to trade blows with competing motherboards. There are no score differentials which highlight any cause for concern.
