Gigabyte Z87X-OC Review


Our final calculation tests before we move on to the 3D benchmarks, and the Z87X-OC just shades the M5, although when you're down to the level of tenths of a point, the differences become an error tolerance thing. Still it's the highest scoring of our motherboards.


wPrime95 is extremely tight across all the big overclocks. In the 32M place test the Sniper M5 just edges the OC by 3 thousandths of a second. As we move to the 1 billion place test though the Z87X-OC stretches its legs and tops the graph by half a second. 165.2 seconds to calculate a billion places is shifting in anyone's book.
