SuperMicro C7Z170-OCE (LGA1151) Motherboard Review

Memory Performance

AIDA64 Engineer

On a more positive note, the C7Z170-OCE’s stock memory bandwidth is superb and features high write speeds. Unlike the previous SuperMicro consumer boards, I didn’t encounter any problem with the 2666MHz XMP profile and found memory benchmarking to be incredibly simple.

The overclocked statistics demonstrate extremely strong memory performance across read and writes, although there is some room for improvement when it comes to the write rates.

Stock memory bandwidth is pretty solid barring the slightly disappointing Integer result. It’s still a respectable number though and shouldn’t be a cause for concern.

The overclock allows the memory to fare much better in Sandra’s memory testing process especially when you look at the Integer score. This is a marked improvement and showcases the benefits of memory overclocking on this particular motherboard.

Combined Latency Test

In terms of memory latency, the C7Z170-OCE at stock settings achieves moderate figures and stays within 2-3 nanoseconds off a mid-table position.

Overclocked latency isn’t ideal when compared to the top results. However, it’s not going to exhibit a marked difference in real-world scenarios. Additionally, a few more benchmark runs could reduce the latency by an average 1-2% and score much better.
