Six Sub-£160 Z77 Motherboards, Benchmarked And Reviewed

TZ77XE4 Firmware

The TZ77XE4 pushed this article’s Core i7-3770K to 4.74 GHz at 1.30 V, using a 100.9 MHz base clock and 47x multiplier.

Power limit and memory controls are farther down Biostar’s O.N.E. menu. Setting XMP Profile 1 allowed us to reach DDR3-2692 on a pair of G.Skill’s DDR3-2666, though four-module tests were less impressive.

More remarkable are primary and secondary memory timing controls on the TZ77XE4’s main O.N.E. overclocking menu. Most competitors move these settings to a separate submenu to reduce menu length and complexity.

Voltage controls are all the way at the bottom of the O.N.E. 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.

    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 :)
