Memory & Hard Disk Drive Performance
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC.
Circa 11GB/sec on such LGA1156 systems are very much what you would expect in SiSoft Sandra's Memory test. Both systems are predictably on par with each other here.
Interestingly the HDD Test outputted identical results for both motherboards. While this is to be expected when both use the same H55 chipset, it indicates a very low error margin within the test itself.
Everest Ultimate Edition's memory testing suite determines the performance of your memory and your system's memory controller. Both Read and Write operations are tested.
Do bear in mind that these results cannot be compared with SiSoft Sandra's test. Regardless, these results are very much the expected results for the aformentioned platform.
Hard Disk Performance

The H55 chipset has little trouble at making the most of our Samsung Spinpoint F1 Hard Disk Drive.
