Overclocking


biostar_z97we_OC

The Biostar motherboard overclocks just fine as we managed our chip’s maximum of 4.8GHz with 1.275 volts and the motherboard delivered a fairly constant 1.275 volts throughout our testing, there was no strange under or overvolting causing any problems like I have had on other motherboards. We are sure this motherboard has plenty more overclocking potential that the upcoming Devil’s Canyon CPUs will be able to take better advantage of.

    I have this motherboard. I run Windows 7 Professional x64.
    I do not see any option to team the 2 NICs. I tried the NIC driver on the manufacture’s website and the 7.92.115.2015 (latest once from RealTek). None of these driver help.
    I have a Gigabyte Z87X-UD5H (also have 2 NICs). The teaming option can be found right in the property menu of the NICs.
    No idea why this option is not showing for the BioStar.
    I emailed the biostart US support e-mail for 3 days and haven’t heard anything from them.
    Can any one help with the NIC teaming of this mom-board?
