SiSoft Sandra doesn't hold any real surprises with performance across the board lining up just as you'd expect.

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.

AIDA64 does a better job of separating memory performance; you can see at stock it lines up with the other boards, while overclocked brings a strong performance boost. The best gain can be seen in that write performance which sky rockets.
