Having a look at USB 2.0 performance, you can see that the ASUS Z79I PLUS sits a little ahead of the others here. Just 1 or 2 MB/s, though, isn't anything to get excited about. USB 3.0 performance sits a little down and lines up more so with the GIGABYTE offering than the MSI one.

AIDA64 and PCMark 8 show strong performance out of the ASUS Z79I PLUS. Moving to HD Tune Pro, you can see performance falls off a little, coming in towards the middle of the pack. You can see we're ahead of some offerings and a little behind others.
