DDR4 memory performance between our X99 motherboards is pretty standard, with little changes being seen between all the setups. As for overclocking, you can see in typical fashion there's really no extra performance being seen when just the processor speed has been increased.

Gaming performances between our out of the box X99 setups are pretty similar, with not much change being seen. However, when it comes to overclocking, you can see a slight boost under 3DMark FireStrike, but a more serious boost is seen under Sleeping Dogs at 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050.
