i7-3770K Ivy Bridge - Energy efficient power house

Looking at the graphical BIOS Intel uses for this board makes me wonder how just a while back we were still happily using the old school blue-and-white-approach to the same settings. Looking past the eye-candy the Visual BIOS offers all the settings you’d expect from a performance-oriented motherboard.

Ivy Bridge, in combination with the Z77-chipset is great for overclocking, because they allow changing the multiplier on-fly right from Windows. With K-series chips the overclocking happens exactly like it does on AMD Black Edition-CPUs, just crank up the multiplier and voltage until the temperatures go through the roof and then fall back a step or two.

For the overclocking tests we used a Thermalright MUX-120 cooler and with that our sample CPU ran out of overclocking headroom at 4,7 GHz. This is still a nice gain of 1,2 GHz over the stock clock speed and will definitely show a significant difference in the performance tests.
