As far as overclocking goes I was happy with what the Z87 MPOWER MAX had to offer as far as tuning and how well the basic tuning of the board was setup. Once you get past setting up the peripherals, memory timings. and voltage. there are only a few settings needed to run the numbers. I was able to max out my 4770K in a matter of 10 to 15 minutes and was able to run it with a lower applied voltage than used on several of the previous boards I have tested. Overclocking my G.Skill DDR3 2400MHz modules to over 2600MHz was just as easy on this board as on the M6H and Z87-GD65. Adjust the timings and voltage, apply the clock speed, and go is all it took."
