Test Setup


Before taking a look at how the converters perform, here is the test system used.  All testing was done on a clean install of Windows 8 Pro 64-bit.  All benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other applications running.

The Intel Z77 system that was used to test the Icy Dock hard drive converters was running the Gigabyte Z77X-UP5 TH motherboard with the F11 BIOS from 09/03/2012, with the i5-3570K processor running slightly overclocked at 4.0GHz.  16GB of Kingston HyperX Blue memory was installed running using the XMP Profile 1, the default 1866MHz and 9-11-9-24 2T settings.
