Drive I/O Performance

HD Tach

HDTach is a free hard disk benchmarking program from Simpli Software. This benchmark is not only capable of producing results on hard disk access times but also CPU usage required during disk access.

Just going on the HD Tach results, we see that the I/O performance on the P5E3 seems faster than on the other two high-end boards.

SiSoft Sandra IO

SiSoft Sandra is a synthetic benchmark utility capable of reporting and benchmarking a wide range of system components. For all of the motherboards we run the Disk Read & Access benchmarks three times to ensure accuracy of results.

The disc read index is higher on the P5E3, mimicking the results from HD Tach. Disc read access times were very slightly higher compared to the other two boards, but not by a huge margin.

Looks nice, shame the overclocking isnt as good as the rest of it Quote

Agreed, although cooling limited me tbh. Still 3.7GHz easily on a Q6600 isn't to be sniffed at. Sometimes I wish we could have a bit more time with the boards to tweak away Quote
