Four Z87 Express Motherboards For Three- And Four-Way SLI

Results: SiSoftware Sandra

Sandra’s CPU benchmarks also show all four motherboards essentially on-par, though its memory test shows the Z87X-UD7 TH slightly behind. With so few other optimizations to choose from, memory optimization has become the “secret sauce” of motherboard makers concerning LGA 1150 performance and memory overclocking.

That slight difference at least gives us something to look for in our real-world benchmark set, which begins on this comparison’s next page.
