MSI's performance with the X299 Gaming Pro Carbon is solid in the CPU and memory range, but does a tad better in games than the other two boards on the list. We are not sure if it is due to tightening of sub-timings at stock, but the motherboard's gaming performance is slightly better at stock. It could be because of tightening of underlying timings or because of a different turbo mechanism, but the margin is very slim.

 

At this point, and as we go further, we will not see too much deviation in the performance of the CPU, memory, or GPU. I do not take much too much credence into benchmarking the CPU or GPU to see how well the motherboard does, as the difference is usually within the margin of error. These tests are to make sure performance is not below that margin, or to see what is going on if it's above.
