Metro 2033 sees a very typical line up of results with little difference between all the setups and the overclock boosts the lower resolution only slightly.

 

3DMark 11 sees the GIGABYTE Z78N-WIFI fall slightly behind the other boards at stock. Overclocking helps bring that number up, but you can see, the Z87X-OC comes out slightly ahead at the Performance preset.
