ASRock Z87E-ITX (Intel Z87) Mini-ITX Motherboard Review

We check out our first Mini-ITX motherboard for the new Z87 Haswell platform from ASRock and find out what kind of performance this tiny board offers.

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.

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

SSD performance on the Z87E-ITX is fairly similar to the OC FORMULA. You can see in AIDA64 it lines up with our other motherboards for the most part, but when we move to HD Tune Pro, you can see performance dips right back, like the other ASRock Z87 motherboard.
