    "We're going to be using the same CPU to overclock upcoming Z87 boards. Our Core i7-4770K managed to run at 4.375GHz (35*125MHz) with 1.25V. The limitation seems to be more of a heat/yield issue with the chip than any obvious problems associated with the Gigabyte board."

    Another website tested this board amongst others and found it overclocked less well than other boards, others adding 200-300mhz to the overclock.
    So it certainly can limit the overclock although is still good value for the price.

    But how much of this is down to the Mobo, or the use of a brand spanking new processor (as suggested by the review)? Bit early to criticise the boards overclocking ability imho, without comparing the clocks achieved using the same cpu in a different mobo.

    I'm pretty certain it was the same CPU.

    It has to be for the results to mean anything, even CPU's of the same stepping have varied overclockability...

    It may be the same product, but it's not the same CPU.

    Who knows how consistent these devices yet are at overclocking? They're brand spanking new! The fact that you are saying that other sites are getting different results could mean that the variance is due to the MoBo, or with the CPU samples that have been shipped.

    My point is that it's far too early to criticise a MoBo based on it's ability to overclock.

    No, the same CPU in the three different motherboards that the other site tested.
