ECS L337 GANK Machine Z87H3-A2X Extreme 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.
In this series of tests the ECS GANK Machine is performing at the lower end of the field at stock speeds due mainly in part to its 3.7GHz Boost speed. As far as memory performance goes the results shown are with the XMP profile applied and were repeatable in every test. However it suffered from lower read and write performance while the latency was fairly tight.
