After giving us a tour of ASUS' 8-series Haswell motherboards and its updated UEFI interface, JJ took us through overclocking a Core i7-4770K using ASUS' new software and UEFI tools. We get a good look at how auto-overclocking works, as well as what settings to pay attention to when manually overclocking Haswell.

    Videos are nice, but only when they have a transcript.

    Don't know that I need a full transcript. But a one page summary might be nice. Sometimes I glance at AT at work and I can't take the time to watch a 36 min video but would be able to read a couple of paragraph summary.

    Agreed. This is worthless without a transcript or an accompanying article of some sort.

    Disagree. The video for this type of demonstration is priceless, with or without transcription or an accompanying article.

    Seriously. I think the same amount of information is transferred in reading for 1 minute or 15 minute video. I really dislike this trend of videos only. I think people should have the choice.

    So when will the video of the mini ITX build be up?

    Granularity... :S
    But good work again AnandTech :-)

    Forgot to say...
    One thing that annoys me with ASUS as well as all the other hardware manufacturers, is the fact they rarely update the clunky software they make. I don't understand why they don't keep the same code base across the devices, and then activate or deactivate functions according to hardware specs. So they e.g. could update UI without having to roll specific version out for each device. But maybe that's just because I'm ignorant about the architecture of the software vs. hardware...

    Nice job, good to have reference ideas from a pro source like Asus and JJ, as most of us have been exposed to overclocking on a pretty much self-taught level, getting our start with advice from other self-taught people, and teaching yourself can give good real-world experiences, but also leave gaps in your knowledge.

    It did feel a little rushed to me, but then those that are more deeply involved and more practiced at OCing probably thought it dragged, lol. I can always refer back to it anyway.

    36 minutes?! Well.. that seems thorough. But I have no idea if there's anything in there which is worth watching the video for. I can't quickly glance over the content like I can with written articles.. which I prefer for such topics.
