ASRock Z97X Fatal1ty Killer (Intel Z97) Motherboard Review

By: Shawn Baker | Socket LGA 1150/1151 in Motherboards | Posted: Jun 23, 2014 2:00 pm
TweakTown Rating: 95%Manufacturer: ASRock

Memory Test - AIDA64


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.00.1035BETA




Memory performance on the ASRock Z97X Killer is very standard, and you can see our new i7-4790K doesn't really change memory performance at all. When it comes to overclocking, you can see that there's no change in overall performance.



Gaming Test - 3DMark 8


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0





Gaming Test – Sleeping Dogs


Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update




3DMark 8 sees the ASRock Z97X Killer perform in line with our other boards, with the overclock really doing little here when it comes to extra performance. Looking at Sleeping Dogs performance, though, you can see that, out of the box, the ASRock Z97X Killer sits up with our new processor. Overclocking also adds a little bit more performance at the lower resolutions.
