ASUS Z87-Plus Testing:
Cinebench 11.5 is useful for testing your system, CPU, and OpenGL capabilities using the software program, CINEMA 4D. We will be using the default tests for this benchmark.
X.264 Benchmark: This benchmark is used to measure the time it takes to encode a 1080p video file into the x264 format. The default benchmark is used with an average of all four tests on each pass taken as the result.
AIDA64 Extreme Edition 3.0 is a software utility designed to be used for hardware diagnosis and benchmarking. I will be using the Cache and Memory benchmark tool to measure memory performance.
Again the Z87-Plus trails the pack slightly but not by any real significant margin. The losses in the overclocked tests are again a result of the slightly lower clock speed combined with the lower memory clock I had to run versus the other results.
