Overall the Z97 Gaming 9 ACK performed excellent in all benchmarks.

 

CPU, DDR, system, and 3D performance are all up to par and there are no issues with performance. While MSI's scores aren't the best at stock, that is because other board makers often OC the system a bit above Intel specifications to gain points in stock tests in reviews. Here at TweakTown I test at stock and at a standardized overclock, that way I can even the playing field.
