Gigabyte Z270X Gaming 7 Review

Overclocking

Gigabyte Z270X Gaming 7

Test Setup

Gigabyte Z270X Gaming 7 - F4b BIOS
Intel i7 7700K
Corsair LPX 3200MHz (stock XMP tests)
Corsair Dominator Platinum 3600MHz
G-Skill TridentZ 3866MHz
Corsair LPX 4266MHz
Corsair MP500 M.2
Samsung 960 Evo M.2
Corsair HX1000i
Corsair H110i GT
Corsair ML Fans

Clocking

The GG7 was really easy to clock once you get used to going to look for where everything is in the BIOS, its a bit like muscle meory and we have not had a Gigabyte board to play with for what seems like an age. It was well worth it though with 5.1GHz and 3866MHz memory coming without too much effort. Once they stop gimping the BIOS and allow people to push the memory further it will be awesome because we believe it is capable and think they have been over cautious and shot themselves in the foot a bit! If you do try and select 4000MHz memory atm it just sets it to 3600MHz... Not exactly helpful but really wont effect 99.99999% of you will it.... Push on to the performance to see why.

Thanks for all your hard work Tom, With all the boards you've shown in my opinion I think the Gigabyte ones win the looks with MSI 2nd and though it pains me to say Asus last. I hope Gigabyte do something the same for their Zen boards and maybe bring out a GPU to match in would be nice.
Seems weird that Intel wouldn't even let you give the prices of the Motherboards I would of thought that was down to the manufacturer, I may be cynical but it maybe they are a little worried of what AMD have and the price they go forQuote

Welll obviously you'd not like it as it's not Evga, Tom can only do what his given, if they don't send any to him he can't review themQuote

Faceplam

Yes i'm aware that TTL doesn't review EVGA product and i remember why he doesn't also there is another motherboard brand he doesn't review either.

It's been over 4 years since TTL has done a EVGA review on video.Quote
