Looking above, you can see our ASUS Z97I PLUS lines up with the SABERTOOTH offering from ASUS, which sits a little behind our other boards here. When it comes to overclocking, you can see there's no real change, which is to be expected.

Looking above, you can see that 3DMark pretty much falls in line with our other setups. Overclocking sees a slight performance increase in the standard preset but very little overall.

 

Looking at Sleeping Dogs, you can see performance is strong out of the box, and overclocking brings a nice little boost to the lower resolutions. At the highest resolution, you see performance sits back just a little. Overall, the numbers are very strong with all of our setups here.
