To test this board, we are able to run all of our tests at stock speeds using a pre-defined setup of hardware. We will also be overclocking the processor to 4.6GHz to see how the board compares against the stock speed. Also in terms of overclocking, we will be looking to see how far we can push the processor.

Test system:

  • Asus Rampage IV Extreme
  • Intel Core i7 3960X
  • Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz 16GB
  • Gigabyte GTX 580 SOC
  • Corsair H80
  • Corsair HX1050
  • Kingston V+100 128GB SSD
  • Lian Li T60

We would like to thank Asus, Corsair, Kingston and Lian Li for supplying us with our test system components.

Comparison used:

  • Overclocked to 4.6GHz

Many different software applications are also used to gain the broadest spectrum of results, which allows for the fairest testing possible.

Software used:

  • 3DMark 11
  • AIDA64
  • Aliens Vs Predator
  • Cinebench R11.5
  • CPU-Z
  • F1 2011
  • Heaven
  • Metro 2033
  • PCMark 7
  • SuperPI
