Memory Test - AIDA64
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.00.1035BETA
Memory performance is strong, and you can see the MSI Z97 MPOWER MAX AC lines up with the ASRock Z97 Extreme4, which managed to perform better than the ASUS offering.
Overclocking, as usual, does little to performance. We see a slight bit of movement as the memory speed is slightly increased thanks to the 101.5 BCLK, but nothing major at all is seen.
Gaming Test - 3DMark 8
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0
Gaming Test – Sleeping Dogs
Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update
Looking above, you can see that 3DMark 8 sees a bit of a performance bump compared to the standard run when overclocked, but apart from that, the numbers are pretty solid between all of the setups.
Sleeping Dogs performance, on the other hand, seems to be slightly stronger across the board at all resolutions. Overclocking then helps push the 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200 numbers even further.
