Our test systems were set to give the fairest results we could even when overclocked.
We used a multiplier of 7x with all the boards with DRAM set at 1:1. We are trying to see which board is better for you deepening on what you want to do - stock or overclocked but who doesn't overclock these days?
In the overclocked state, the ASUS board was running at 443 x 7 = 3101MHz, the Foxconn board was running at 432 x 7 = 3024MHz and the MSI board was running at 402 x 7 = 2814MHz.
Let's take a look at the performance of the boards!

SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.
Stock clocks we see very little between the boards and it is not till we overclock we see a slight improvement and the crown here to ASUS for the higher memory bandwidth.
