Overclocking

As always with our overclocking we have two types. At the top is the overclock which we'll be using for our tests. Given the robust nature of our benchmark suite it is always more demanding than the kind of overclock you might be able to obtain if simply glory hunting. However, if you are in the mood to just look for impressive screenshots then the Strix ITX is more than capable as you can see from the bottom CPUz. If you ever doubt how much ITX motherboards have improved in recent years, and how great this 2nd Generation Zen architecture is, hopefully this dispels those qualms.

That won't be for a while yet. The VI Extreme got announced at the end of July last year so a VII Extreme would probably be around the same time-frame. Although I maintain that having it ready for the CPU launch would have sold very well.


TTL, What kind of error did Gears give when you tried running it? Bit weird that it just flat out refused to run at allQuote

Got this board and tried two m.2 drives on the main front slot, and they didn't work. The slot doesn't even appear in the BIOS. Returned it and got an different board instead.Quote

IT would depend on your drive/s and whether you have it set to the right mode. There are two different types of M.2. One is SATA and will need to be set accordingly and the other is NVME which uses PCIE lanes. Usually when you use SATA it knocks out a couple of your SATA ports on the board. However, I would imagine PCIE/NVME needs the controller to be enabled.

Silly question but did you read the manual?Quote
