Starting off with our CPU benchmarks, you can see that across the board our stock settings are very similar between all three motherboards. Overclocking brings with it a nice boost in performance as you see almost 2 minutes shaved off of our HyperPi time.

 

 

System Test - PCMark 8

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.04

PCMark and MediaEspresso show what we saw in our CPU benchmarks with the stock numbers on all three boards being very similar and nothing more than a bit of fluctuation being seen. Overclocking again yields a nice performance boost, and you can see that we manage to shave almost 3 minutes off of our encode process.
