ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 Motherboard 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 4.0 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 two boards are totally locked in sync with each other. Both perform quite well and both get a pretty good boost from the overclock to just over 4.7 GHz. The ASUS board did seem to have a slight edge in the memory tests, but the results are so close that I doubt they're much past statistical noise.
