Looking above, you can see USB 2.0 performance is pretty much where it should be. USB 3.0 performance sees itself sit in line with our ASRock and MSI offerings but behind our GIGABYTE Z97X-UD5H, which offered some really good numbers.

Across all of our SSD benchmarks, you can see our Corsair Force GT 240GB SATA III drive sits where it's supposed to for the most part. HD Tune Pro, which is the one benchmark that tends to separate the results a bit more sees our GIGABYTE Z97X GAMING G1 WIFI-BK Black Edition perform in line with a majority of the other boards.
