Memory Test - AIDA64


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.00.1035BETA




Memory performance is pretty standard, as it sits in the middle of the pack. As always, when it comes to overclocking, there's really no impact to performance, as you don't see much movement. It will be interesting to see how DDR4 goes when released this month.



Gaming Test - 3DMark 8


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0





Gaming Test - Sleeping Dogs


Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update




Looking at gaming performance, you can see the results are very standard. Out of the box, the performance of the setup pretty much lines up with our others here.


When we throw overclocking into the mix, you can see a slight boost at the lower resolution. The higher resolutions don't really show any change, as we're more dependent on the video card than the CPU.
