Gigabyte Z68AP-D3 Review
Published: 26th October 2011 | Source: Gigabyte | Price: £82.64 @ Aria |
Our test rig is our standard LGA1155 affair. The only change from our last review is the switch from the 285.27 ForceWare drivers to the latest 285.33.

Considering the reduced level of power-circuitry we weren't expecting much from the ZX68AP-D3 but it proved to be very capable indeed, giving us a rock-solid 4.6GHz overclock on our i5-2500K at good voltage as well. When coupled to our 2133MHz RAM we're expecting the D3 to be right up there as it's only 100 or 200MHz shy of some heavy hitters.
