GIGABYTE Z77N-WiFi Mini-ITX Motherboard Review
Unfortunately, GIGABYTE chose not to include any BIOS-based auto-tuning features with this board. However, I was able to stabilize the boards at a 103MHz base clock with a 4.12GHz CPU speed and memory running at 2200MHz. while this may not sound impress initially, keep in mind that the board only has a total of two voltage-related settings - Internal CPU PLL Overvoltage (which is an enable/disable setting only) and DRAM voltage. Given those facts, the overclocking ability of this board becomes much more impressive because the overclock obtained was done using default voltage settings with the exception of the memory voltage. System stability was tested over a 10 hour period with LinX running for 500 loops with Memory set to All and FurMark running at 1280x1024 resolution and 2x MSAA in stress test mode.
