Intel Z77 Chipset Motherboard Review

The gang at Overclockers Club took a couple Intel Z77 chipset motherboards out for a spin today. How well does the Z77 chipset stack up to Z68 boards? Hit the link to find out.

Overclocking the MSI Z77A-GD65 was more of the same type of Sandy Bridge overclocking we have seen in the past on the Z68 as well as the P67 platform with simple bclock and bclock multiplier adjustments to creep up on the highest possible clock speed. This of course continues to be a limiting factor in how far your chip will overclock. The MSI Z77A-GD65 proved to be fully capable of delivering an overclock similar to what I have reached on Z68 and P67 boards in the past with the test CPU.
