Under SiSoft Sandra we can see memory performance is strong and when overclocked we get a nice little boost. We'll get a better idea of what's going on under AIDA64.

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 can again see that with our system at stock our Gene-Z board runs in line with our other setups just as we'd expect. Like we've seen all along, though, when we crank up those clock speeds we get an extremely strong boost in performance, especially when it comes to write performance.
