These tests are done out of the box, so I have decided to include whether or not the vendor has implemented some type of default overclocking, such as multi-core enhancement. Multi-core enhancement is when the motherboard vendor pushes all cores to maximum turbo speeds instead of just one or two.

MCE as I will call it, can cause instability if your CPU isn't great, and we would hope vendors would have it off by default, but it does offer a free performance boost out of the box. Some motherboards also might increase the BCLK a bit over stock to score higher, and some might even mess with the turbo boost table. If we standardize settings, then most motherboards should perform the same, but in this case, we haven't.

Overall, the Z370 AORUS Gaming 7 is doing just fine, as it follows Intel's specifications, and we will see the benefit of this in the power consumption table, where it uses roughly 50W less than the other systems. Overall, I didn't find any performance issues with the Z370 AORUS Gaming 7; we actually used it for our Coffee Lake review.
