Overclocking: Asus Rampage IV Extreme Versus EVGA X79 FTW
By

Many companies claim to offer the best overclocking for your money, yet only two compete for the best overclocking at the very highest price point. Today we put those claims to the test, including a full set of benchmarks to analyze performance gains.

Remembering what we observed from Asus’ automatic power settings, its baseline measurements are unsurprisingly higher than EVGA’s. But this is primarily an overclocking comparison, and EVGA performs exceptionally well when we compare its performance to its lower overclock.

Unable to use XMP or the 21.33x memory multiplier to reach DDR3-2133 on the X79 FTW, manually copying Asus’ secondary timings to EVGA’s firmware finally provided the solution for DDR3-2133 testing. Performance is similar at that setting, with Asus holding only a slight lead.
