Memory Test - AIDA64


Version and / or Patch Used: v4.30.2900




Memory performance under AIDA64 sees the ASUS offering performing a little lower than what we see on the Z87 ASRock board. With no real change to the memory speed when overclocking, you also see no difference across the board.



Gaming Test - 3DMark 8


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1





Gaming Test - Sleeping Dogs


Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update




When it comes to 3DMark 8 performance, you can see there's not too much change across the board.


As for Sleeping Dogs, while there's not much difference between the platforms, you can see overclocking gives a slight performance increase at all resolutions as we move up in speed. It's not a lot, but it is a consistently small bump across the board.
