Benchmark time and like normal we have our ASUS P6T and Rampage II Extreme boards for comparison. Stock settings are as normal with the 3.2GHz CPU clock using a 133MHz BCLK and a 1333MHz memory divider.
With regards to overclocking, we hit 3.7GHz with the ASRock using a 185MHz BLCK and 1500MHz memory clock, so this should be a good result for the ASRock board. Let's begin testing and see how it pulls through.

EVEREST Ultimate Edition is an industry leading system diagnostics and benchmarking solution for enthusiasts PC users, based on the award-winning EVEREST Technology. During system optimizations and tweaking it provides essential system and overclock information, advanced hardware monitoring and diagnostics capabilities to check the effects of the applied settings. CPU, FPU and memory benchmarks are available to measure the actual system performance and compare it to previous states or other systems.
First off, it's EVEREST and ASRock has done a fantastic job with its latest BIOS for tweaking at stock speeds. It managed only by a few points, but was able to beat out the two ASUS boards. When it came to overclocking the Uncore and memory were in perfect sync, which allowed it to keep up despite a slower BLCK.
