Test System Setup and Overclocking
We've got a bunch of boards in our graphs today, and a lot of them do revolve around the higher-end X99 chipset. The X99 boards in our graphs include the MSI X99S Gaming 9, ASUS ROG Rampage V Extreme, ASUS X99 Deluxe, and GIGABTYE X99-UD5 WIFI, all of which are using the Intel i7 5960X EE CPU.
As for Z97 based boards, we've got the ASRock Z97X Killer, and the ASUS ROG Maximus VII Formula. These will all be sitting alongside our ASUS ROG Maximus VII Impact running at stock and overclocked via our Intel i7 4790K processor.
Heading into the BIOS, we start to mess around with our voltages and multiplier. With little effort, we ended up with our CPU running at 4700MHz via a 47x multiplier, and a 100 BCLK. This isn't a bad overclock, and should provide a nice little performance boost over the stock speed of the i7 4790K.
