Sisoft Sandra 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 areas of the motherboards.

The value of having a quad core CPU for raw computing power just can't be overlooked.

Overclocking helps but not enough to overcome the Quad core performance.
