Six Sub-£160 Z77 Motherboards, Benchmarked And Reviewed

Z77 Extreme6 Firmware

The Z77 Extreme6 pushes a solid 4.77 GHz from our Core i7-3770K at 1.30 V, using a 101.4 MHz base clock and 47x core multiplier.

ASRock’s current OC Tweaker menu also puts XMP configuration on its main page, along with power limit adjustments. Shown at DDR3-2704, the board pushed our memory to a still-respectable DDR3-2700 with complete stability.

All significant voltage controls are found further down the main menu, just above the Z77 Extreme6’s three user profile firmware configuration storage options.

A separate DRAM Configuration submenu provides primary, secondary, and tertiary timings. Light-colored menus offer direct control, while dark menus much be switched from Auto to Manual to reveal a hidden settings menu.

    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 :)
