Testing:

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 functions of the CPUs.

In the Sandra benchmark, all of the boards were giving very similar results and did not change much based on which board the chip was placed in. The Power Management Efficiency test is where you can see a difference between the boards, with the Gigabyte boards being towards the middle when overclocked and the Sapphire board being towards the end of the pack.
