Supermicro's C7Z170-SQ is using Intel's specified parameters for CPU speeds instead of multi-core enhancement which some others in the lineup are using resulting in others scoring a little higher at stock but even with standardized settings. Overall CPU performance is strong, and all around the motherboard keeps up with other more expensive models.

 

Some motherboard reviewers put a lot of weight into motherboard CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks, but for me CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks on motherboards should be more about finding anomalies and I do that at standard settings (4.5G in graphs).
