Starting off with our CPU tests, you can see performance is pretty solid across the board, lining up with our other Z97 offerings here. When we throw overclocking into the mix, you can see we get a bit of a performance boost thanks to that extra couple of hundred MHz offered.

System performance at stock is pretty standard, and the numbers are quite similar between all of our Z97 boards here. Looking at overclocking performance, you can see a bit of a boost, but overall, it's not too strong since the i7 4790K just isn't as good of an overclocker as the i7 4770K.
