The best AM3 overclocker motherboard?
Now let’s get to the main test. We’ll be using our recent AMD Phenom II X6 1075T processor with 2x 1GB Corsair XMS3-1333 ram, 64GB Kingston V-Series SSD running Windows 7 Ultimate and an MSI N480GTX Lightning all powered by a Corsairs HX1000W PSU. For comparison, we’re running it up against the ECS A890GXM-A2 motherboard on which we benched the AMD Phenom II processors last week.
Stock performance seems to be identical, except in the case of PC Mark which favors the ECS board while 3D Mark Vantage seems to like the ASUS motherboard more.
