MSI H55M-ED55 (H55 Express) Motherboard - Synthetic Tests - Part II

MSI shows us its OC Genie on a H55 Express board; the H55M-ED55. Can this help to push this board out of the entry level? Let's find out.

Disk Drive Controller

 

The system drive controller is an important part of system performance. In most modern boards your drive controller will run off of the PCI-e bus. The PCI-e bus performance can be affected by poor trace layout as well as many other design choices that show up on different boards.

 

For testing we use Sisoft's Sandra and Everest.

The H55M-ED55 shows us slower HDD performance by roughly 10MB/s. This could hurt it and also is more than likely the reason for the slower HyperPi performance.

Overclocked Memory Performance

 

The slower HDD performance is again present in our Everest testing. Hopefully MSI can fix this minor slowdown with a BIOS update and get the HDD read performance back to where it should be.
