MSI Big Bang Z77 MPower - Sanctioned Overclocking!

By Wong Chung Wee - 5 Nov 2012
Launch SRP: S$339

Results - Gaming

Results - Futuremark 3DMark Vantage

In the first of our gaming benchmarks, the MSI Z77 MPower didn't really differentiate itself from the rest of the boards and only managed middling results in this synthetic test.

 

Results - Futuremark 3DMark 11

For this updated synthetic gaming benchmark, the MSI Z77 MPower took pole position due to its strong showing in the component test results (as seen in the second graph). The board did well on the whole, thus confirming its top position in comparison with the rest of the boards for its overall Performance and Combined scores.

 

Results - Far Cry 2

For the last of our gaming benchmarks, we ran tests using an actual game where the MSI Z77 MPower managed to take the lead once again. Notice that we didn't really use very high settings in this benchmark and those above because the performance at more taxing settings is purely GPU limited and will not be as apparent as testing on mid-quality settings.
