IT Lab has posted up a 2-minute video guide how to overclock to 2800MHz DDR3 using Corsair Dominator Platinum 2666MHz CL10 memory, a Core i7 4770K and Maximus VI Impact mini-ITX motherboard.
The overclock is designed to push the memory beyond its spec, yet still be stable for everyday use. Since the kit is based on Samsung K4B2G0846D chip, using the built-in profile within the Impact’s UEFI BIOS, most of the work is done for you!
Here’s the ROG overclocking guide for those who want to try and hit 5GHz with a Maximus VI series motherboard and Intel ‘Hawell’ Core i5-4670K or Core i7-4770K CPU, using Realbench 2 for testing and stability.
The ASUS Z87 Deluxe/SATA Express is a modified Z87 Deluxe technical demonstration to exhibit the fact ASUS is not only developing motherboards with next generation SATA Express, it has them already working. See our gallery or click the link to TweakTown’s detailed preview below.
ASUS has just announced its new ThunderboltEX II PCI-Express card will be available in early 2014, with its Z87-Pro motherboard already certified. If you’re curious to add a Thunderbolt II to your motherboard, here’s the breakdown about the new ‘EX II.
Chino’s memory setup guide is perfect for new users to the Maximus VI motherboard series (in his example, it’s the new Hero). With all its features the ROG BIOS can be a little overwhelming, so Chino lays it straight on how to read the DIMM settings and input them into the BIOS correctly
JJ takes us through the ROG RAIDR Express: the PCI-Express SSD that will exceed SATA III speeds at 830/810MB/s (read/write). You can install your OS to it and it’s even got a UEFI BIOS on it so you can fast-boot Windows 8 (even faster!). See the video below for the live action example.
The following may help to achieve better overclocking results on the Maximus VI series overclocking and gaming motherboards.
