Starting out with our CPU benchmarks, you can see out of the box the performance on our ASUS ROG Maximus VII Formula is pretty standard, and lines up with our other motherboards here. When it comes to overclocking, you can see that the increase in performance isn't too bad thanks to that overclock being a little stronger than usual.

System Test - PCMark 8

Looking at the performance of our ASUS ROG Maximus VII Formula under PCMark 8, and MediaEspresso, we can see that out of the box, the ROG board performs pretty normal.

After bumping up the clock speeds, you can see a nice little boost in performance. Under MediaEspresso, you can see we're almost able to sneak under that fourteen minute mark.
