While small, we continue to see these ITX boards offer great gaming performance compared to their big brothers, as we don't deal with a CPU limitation.


Overclocking brings a slight boost to the 3DMark 11 Performance preset and the low resolution Metro 2033 testing, but apart from that, you can see all setups run quite close to each other.
