At stock with the memory at the same speed there's little difference between the two boards. Overclocked, we had to drop our memory speed down and in turn you see the memory speed drop off.

Replacing Everest in our labs is AIDA64. This new testing suite is from the core development team from Lavalys and continues that tradition. The guys have thrown in better support for multithreaded CPUs as well as full 64 bit support. We use this to test memory and HDDs for now, but may find ourselves opening this up to other areas of the motherboard.

We see the exact same kind of results as we did in Sandra, but they look slightly more extreme here when it comes to the board overclocked which has had the memory speed dropped back.
