Today we'll be looking at the GIGABYTE Z68X-UD3H-B3 against a number of other boards including its big, big, big brother; the Z68X-UD7-B3 which we've already found ourselves extremely pleased with. We've also got a couple of other Z68 boards included and an X58 one; they can all be seen in the above image or in each of our graphs.
When it comes to overclocking, the Z68X-UD3H-B3 carries with it the same EasyTune 6 Quick Boost functionality that is present on the Z68X-UD7-B3 and many other GIGABYTE boards.
What that means is we can fire up EasyTune 6, hit level 3 and get 4.2GHz or when Intel SpeedStep kicks in, it can be as high as 4.39GHz. We tested it on the UD3H today to make sure it worked with no issues. Of course, as you would expect, it ran fine and when the CPU was in use SpeedStep did kick the speed up to 4.39GHz.
Because we have only just tested the Z68X-UD7-B3 and we included the performance results at level 3 Quick Boost, we haven't retested it today on the UD3H. Instead we've just opted to go into the BIOS and do some manual overclocking to see what we could get out of the board.
Overclocking wasn't as strong as the Z68X-UD7-B3 which is what we expected. What we did end up with, though, was a solid 5.09GHz. This should yield some strong performance over the stock 3.4GHz clock and we'll see how it compares to some of the other boards we've tested.
