Sisoft Sandra has multiple benchmarks designed to test nearly every component within your system to provide you a detailed view of the capabilities. We will be taking a look at a few of their benchmarks, revolving around Memory and the CPU.
Legit Bottom Line: Overclocking the CPU doesn’t have an impact on the memory bandwidth, however compared to other Z170 motherboards the memory performs as we would expect. For the CPU testing, overclocking does have an effect, for the Arithmetic test we see a 4.5% and 1.5% performance boost compared to the base clock speeds. In Multi-Media testing, that jumps to an 18% and 17% boost from 4.0GHz.
