Biostar Hi-Fi Z97WE 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 2014 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.

Overall Score



To start with, it looks like the Biostar is the slowest out of the gate. After some quick digging, the Turbo Boost clock multiplier is maxing out at 37 instead of the 39 seen on the comparison boards. After clearing CMOS and resetting factory defaults, with the only change being the application of the XMP profile for the memory, the clock multiplier stays at 37 under a load leading to lower scores by comparison. Overclocking helps, but the way the secondary timings are applied may be limiting performance.
