While USB 2.0 performance seems to sit a little down, you can see that USB 3.0 performance is between our other two setups here that use the recently added Corsair Voyager GS 128GB pen drive.

Taking a look at SSD performance under AIDA64 and PCMark 8, you can see it's pretty typical and lines up as you'd expect. Moving into HD Tune Pro, you can see that we sit in line with our MSI and GIGABYTE motherboards, which is a little behind our other ASRock offerings.
