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 drive speed from the Foxconn H55MX-S is a little behind the others in the group.

Drive speed testing under Everest shows us pretty much the same thing that Sandra does with a little more detail.
