Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H 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.
Cinebench has the Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H scoring near the top at stock. In overclocking it slips behind; the less aggressive overclock is likely the cause here as can be seen by the ASUS Z87-PLUS, which is clocked closer to the Gigabyte. At stock in X.264 the motherboard comes close to the top boards;overclocking it falls a little behind. With AIDA 64 testing the Gigabyte did well, staying average or better in all of the categories.
