MSI Z97 XPOWER AC 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



The PCMark 7 tests show the Z97 XPOWER AC in the middle of the field at stock speeds, yet it falls off when overclocked. Not the result I expected. And this was repeatable after re-applying the overclock multiple times. In the Sandra testing, the Z97 XPOWER AC again falls into the middle of the pack, both stock and overclocked.
