MSI Z97I Gaming AC Motherboard Review

There are a couple of different way to overclock this motherboard. For beginners you can use the OC Genie that is built into the Command Center software. Just start it up and it will start to tune your system.


After the tuning was complete it brought our Core i7-4770K up to 4.0 GHz from 3.5 GHz.


Not bad, but I knew we could do better. Going into the BIOS and setting the values myself I was able to achieve a 4.6 GHz overclock or 1.1 GHz over stock!


This was the exact same overclock that I was able to achieve on the ASUS Z97-A Motherboard.
