Everest Home Edition

Everest Home Edition is a good benchmark for testing memory performance.  Since the motherboard's overclocking potential and memory bandwidth is closely related, I find this benchmark to be trustworthy.

SiSoft Sandra

Like Everest Home Edition, SiSoft Sandra memory bandwidth tests the motherboard's memory bandwidth performance.

Super PI

Since the value of PI is an infinite value, Super PI is a speed test to find a specified digit.  In this case, we chose the millionth digit.  Super PI benefits greatly from higher FSB, as well as low latencies.


PiFast is similar to Super PI and the results can be greatly affected by a slight adjustment to the memory megahertz and latency.

Unreal Tournament 2004

Unreal Tournament 2004 is a very popular game that is highly affected by the system's performance.  Testing was conducted with a resolution of 640x480 to minimize the dependency of GPU and CPU power.
