Memory performance on the GIGABYTE Z97X GAMING G1 WIFI-BK Black Edition is strong. Above, you can see that GIGABYTE tends to perform extremely well in write performance, with the strong lead also being seen on the UD5H. Overclocking gives us a little bit of a performance boost, but overall it's not much, which is pretty standard.

Looking at 3DMark 8 performance, you can see that performance is pretty standard across the board, with overclocking showing little difference. Sleeping Dogs performance is strong across the board at stock, and you can see overclocking gives us a bit of a boost at the lower resolutions.
