In the absence of a Core i7-7700K, we tested the C7Z270-CG against the C7Z170-OCE in order to gauge performance gains based on Supermicro’s motherboard revisions. Our results provided few surprises based on that comparison, and taking into account a theoretical performance increase offered by a Kaby Lake chip. We will update the results below with Z270 comparisons based on testing with an i7-7700K when possible.

Test System*:

  • Intel Core i7-6700K
  • Samsung 850 Pro SSD
  • 16GB Crucial Ballistix DDR4-3000 kit
  • Noctua NH-U12S
  • Corsair AX1500i
  • Windows 10 Home Edition

*No graphics card installed

Supermicro C7Z270-CG – Conclusion

As our results show, there’s not a huge performance difference when compared to Supermicro’s own C7Z170-OCE. However the C7Z270-CG’s lower power draw suggests the manufacturer has increased the efficiency of its latest products, which – given fairly similar performance results – is an achievement worth noting. Additional connectivity is also implemented as we’d expect. A better consideration though is how this motherboard stacks up against other Z270 products.

The answer really is that for a complete package of performance, design and features this motherboard may miss out. However, with a Core i7 6700K installed, this board provided an average of two frames per second more than every Z270 board we’ve seen so far – even though other boards were tested with a i7-7700K. That’s impressive, and Supermicro’s focus on the stability and performance of its consumer products seems well-placed.

If trust in that stability (and a need to eek out as much performance as possible while gaming) are key, then there’s an argument here for choosing Supermicro and the C7Z270-CG. On the other hand, if you like to show off your components, prefer additional features, and can’t be swayed by Supermicro’s ‘build it and forget it’ approached, you may be best looking elsewhere.
