Certainly the affordable nature of the Krait hasn't limited its overclocking capabilities. 4.9GHz from our Core i7-4770K is up there with the very best around. Hugely impressive and we hope that the benchmarks mirror this excellent overclocking result.

Proof you don't need to spend a fortune to achieve a good overclock but with the limited power phases we did have to set the bios up to deliver a few more volts that usual.

damn, that was very disappointing. I guess I was hoping for too much there, even so great review.Quote

Hmm, I wonder if anything there will be improved with future BIOS updates. Sure seems a shame, as that is one sexy and well priced board. Great review!Quote
