Drive I/O Performance

HD Tach
HDTach is a free hard disk benchmarking program from SimpliSoftware. This benchmark is not only capable of producing results on hard disk access times but also CPU usage required during disk access. The "Long bench" was run a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.

Result Observations
HD Tach does not seem to like the Nvidia 7 series as far as speeds go and I was a little disappointed with the burst speed result. Having said that, the MSI P7N SLI Platinum managed an awesome 0% CPU utilization, even after repeated testing. Average IO results from the board.

Nice review mate and a decent board to boot!

Now all that MSI need to do is remove Zippy, Bungle and George from the "board colour scheme" team, and they'll have a perfect board

Seriously tho...surprisingly decent OC results from an Nvidia chipset.Quote

Yes, i mean thats better than the 780i boards which are a 'better' chipset..Quote

That is some serious overclocking results.. I mean it beat the others by quite a chunk! Also the 0% CPU utilization was quite impressive.Quote

Great review.

I`m still feeling these 780 boards are `good` without being great.

Some excel with something in 1 area and lose something in another, all very minimally. But appear solid.

Like to see an SLI vS CF of the `best` of the 780i`s vS the `best` 35/38. From a gaming pov, be pretty interesting. All the same stuff cept the gfxcards, that perhaps are close as single cards maybe.

With the prices tho, I don`t think u can turn ur nose up at them.Quote

if they combined that boards performance and features with the DFi black and green colour scheme, you'd be onto a winner

performs sweet though Quote
