ASUS Z87-Plus Testing:
PCMark 7 is the latest iteration of Futuremark's popular PCMark system performance tool. This version is designed for use on Windows 7 PCs and features a combination of 25 different workloads to accurately measure the performance of all PCs from laptops to desktops.
SiSoft Sandra 2013 is a diagnostic utility and synthetic benchmarking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful. For this benchmark, I will be running a broad spectrum of tests to gauge the performance of key functions of the CPUs.
The ASUS Z87-Plus trails the pack a bit in these tests at stock speed but not by any significant margin. The slightly lower clock speed when overclocked shows up here pretty easily but keep in mind my chip might be the limiting factor here and not the board.
