Intel Core i5-12400 Overclocked to 5 GHz On MSI MAG B760M Mortar Max, Close To i5-13600K In Gaming

The Intel Core i5-12400 does wonders when overclocking a motherboard that allows running Non-K BCLK like the MSI MAG B760M Mortar Max.

MSI MAG B760M Mortar Max Overclocks With Intel Core i5-12400 Up To 5GHz, Close To Core i5-13600K Performance In Gaming

A few days ago, it was reported that MSI’s MAG B760M Mortar MAX WIFI motherboard would be among the few designs with Non-K BCLK overclocking capabilities. We’ve seen a 5.0GHz overclock on an Intel Core i5-12400 CPU with the motherboard, and now we can see a bunch of gaming benchmarks as the overclocking chip is tested.

The leak that comes again from the reputable chi11eddog, shows us an Intel Core i5-12400 CPU, overclocked to 5GHz and tested with a GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card at 1440p. Titles including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Final Fantasy XIV, Red Dead Redemption 2, and F1 2022 were used. Core i5-12400 (5GHz) was compared to Core i5-13400 and Core i5-13600K CPUs.

As expected, the 5GHz Intel Core i5-12400 processor delivered up to 8% better performance in games, and it also managed to get close to the Core i5-13600K in games. Now, that’s in line with clocks that were 8.5% higher than the Core i5-13400’s maximum boost of 4.6GHz. These tests show that users with a good Non-K BCLK motherboard can still squeeze some extra juice out of their chips. MSI also introduces the B660M Mortar MAX WIFI series which enables the same overclocking capabilities. Anyone upgrading to the newer B760 Max series should expect similar features and enjoy better performance without spending more on a higher chip.

Intel B760 motherboards and 13th Gen Non-K CPUs will be available in the first week of January, just a week before the launch of the AMD Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPU.

In your opinion, what is the best price range for budget motherboards?
