SuperMicro C7Z170-SQ (LGA 1151) Motherboard Review

CPU & GPU Performance


Thrown straight into the testing and the board struggles to perform at stock, but once overclocked we have a figure that is one of the best we’ve had so far.


A similar story with wPrime, this isn’t a promising start for the server dominator.

SiSoft Sandra

Well, that’s much better result, topping the chart at stock and pulling away when overclocked.


The graphics performance isn’t really a huge factor nowadays thanks to the extremely high bandwidth offered by the motherboard itself, rather the limitation is with the graphics card itself.

Tomb Raider

The GTX 980Ti really pulling out all of the stops here and provides one of the best FPS scores we’ve seen through the Z170 testing.

Bioshock Infinite

The SuperMicro providing the best possible experience for the GTX 980Ti to lay down all of its power here and provide another great result.
