ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark S Limited Edition Motherboard Review

There is an easy way to overclock on the Sabertooth Z97 Mark S. When in the BIOS you can go into the EZ Tuning Wizard (press F11).


After answering a few questions about our system it would give us a 15% boost in performance for our CPU and 22% for our memory.


After restarting what this did was change our BCLK from 100 MHz to 102 MHz and upped our CPU multiplier to 45. This gave us a 4.58 MHz clock speed for our CPU up from 4.0 GHz. Our memory was upped from 1600 MHz to 1630 MHz. So not that bad for an auto-overclocking feature.


I of course decided I was going to do some overclocking on my own. So I first set my CPU voltage to 1.4V and started going up from 4.0 GHz and checking each time if the system was stable. I was able to boot at both 4.8 GHz and 4.7 GHz, but my final stable overclock was 4.6 GHz, which has been the limit for me with the Core i7 4790K. Still not a bad overclock at all!
