Benchmark Results: Productivity

Six Sub-£160 Z77 Motherboards, Benchmarked And Reviewed
By

A tiny default overclock allows Gigabyte to shave a fraction of a second from our Photoshop benchmark, a difference that rounds up to a full second.

We see the same overclocking advantage in 3ds Max, though Biostar’s slight performance loss defies such an easy explanation.

Asus takes a barely-noticeable loss in WinZip, which is a somewhat inconsistent benchmark anyway. We retested many times, but could not identify the cause of its slight deficiency.

ASRock wins ABBYY FineReader, and any signs of Gigabyte’s former lead or Asus’ odd loss are gone.

    I'm a bit new to this, but how can we start the pc if the motherboard doesn't have the power button?

    on the bottom of the motherboard there's a set of headers (small pins) that connect to the various buttons on your pc case, one of which is the power-on button.

    just short the 2 power button pins with a screwdriver.

    Yes , but there a set of headers were u can connect the cables that connet to the front / top of your case so that u can just click and that it . The ones that have a power button it's if u want to change parts like gpu and u don't want to put it in a case. Hope it helped :)
