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.
Unfortunately the ASRock 890GM Pro3 does not do so well when it comes to HDD performance. It is at the bottom of the list for both stock and overclocked performance.

Overclocked HDD Performance
Stock USB 3.0 Performance
Overclocked USB 3.0 Performance
Everest confirms our Sandra findings. This showing could impact future tests like AutoGK, PCMark Vantage and LightWave.
