Overclocking


ASRock Z97X Fatality Killer OC

The ASRock Fatal1ty Z97X Killer motherboard overclocked our chip to its maximum requiring just 1.27 volts to achieve 4.8GHz. Interestingly our chip ran significantly cooler with the ASRock motherboard than it has done on any other motherboard. I suspect ASRock’s voltage delivery system works in a different way to those offered by ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte because I was seeing temperatures in the 70s-80s as opposed to low 90s when at maximum load. Either way it offers overclocked performance that matches rival vendors and it appears to offer better fixed voltages than rival vendor solutions allowing you to more effectively tame Haswell’s high temperatures.
