Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H Review


Those of you who rightfully read our Intel review first will remember how the combination of Z77 and HD7970 gave us our record OpenGL result in CineBench R11.5. As you can see it didn't exactly last long, as the overclocked UD5H manages a whopping 106.57 FPS. Eye-popping indeed. The CPU score is less impressive as we know a similarly clocked i7-2600K gets around 9.6 Pts, which the 4.8 GHz i7-3770K certainly doesn't get close to.


Yet another result that doesn't seem to be taking advantage of our overclock. It's as if something is reverting it back to stock, except we know from monitoring the clock speed that the overclock is 'sticking', and multiple runs have shown that this is just the result we get.  Odd.

Another good review though I'm not sure IB was worth your (plural) time! I was so hoping that the early reports of heat and similar overclock outputs would be wrong but alas there is very little to pick between these 1155 chips.Quote

^^ Bet you can't wait. Am I right in saying that this board is in direct competition with the P8Z77 deluxe from Asus?Quote
