Zotac Z68-ITX WiFi Review


Zotac Z68-ITX WiFi Review


CPU Benchmarks

At stock the Zotac is a little behind some of the other boards we've tested, although nothing shocking in any way at all. When overclocked it naturally is a good step behind the best because of the slower overclock we were able to obtain.

Memory Benchmarks

Memory performance at stock is understandably quite average, but then at 1333MHz we wouldn't expect banner waving highlights. However even though it's limited to 1866MHz here it still comfortably outperforms the Gigabyte Z68X UD5 so there clearly isn't much performance being taken away. In AIDA64 at least.

If you look at all the recent SB itx boards from Asus & Gigabyte, they also have the socket too close to the pci-e slot. But those are H61 & H67 boards that won't overclock. I'm eagerly awaiting the upcoming Z68 board from Gigabyte, hopefully they'll move the socket over so that you can get decent tower cooler on there. The Thermalright axp 140 seems to be the best choice for these boards at the moment - but the tolerances are very small....

The Prolimatech Samuel 17 is also a good choice.Quote

£12. Would have been good for testing purposes.

In fairness to the manufacturers, they'd not envisage the sense in buying an itx mobo and sticking a tower on it. You'd ideally be looking at the smallest case to fit the thing in with your low power cpu and possibly a 1u/2u type cooler.

For benching the thing, naturally you'll go with the best cooler you have at hand and clock the crap out of it the best you can.

These itx mobos are too expensive imo.Quote
