The TZ77XE4 T-Overclocker with a black PCB and black expansion
slots. Southbridge cooler as well as the coolers on the current converters get
an orange cover which really looks nice and gives this board an individual
touch. Furthermore we like that there are only those three orange spots on the
board. Like this the board comes with a calm design, which is still unique.
Biostar equipped their latest
TZ77XE4 T-Overclocker motherboard with a 13 phase VRM design. This really is
enough even for overclocking. In a later stage we will check what this board is
capable of regarding extreme overclocking.
you'll find four DIMM-slots on the Biostar TZ77XE4 T-Overclocker and it supports DDR3 2600 (OC) / 2400 (OC) / 2133 (OC) / 1866 (OC) / 1600 / 1333 / 1066 MHz.
The current converters are being held at adequate temperatures via a passive heatpipe cooling solution. There are two separate cooling blocks covering the area which are connected via a heatpipe. The southbridge got a cooling block too, which has not been integrated into the heatpipe loop of the VRM. The fact that the cooling blocks around the CPU socket aren't too big makes it comfortable to install a big aircooler. We also noticed the very high manufacturing quality of the cooling blocks.
