System Builder Marathon, June 2011: $2000 Performance PC

Benchmark Results: SiSoftware Sandra 2011

Sandra’s CPU tests almost perfectly reflect the small difference in clock speeds between systems. The previous build achieves a slightly better overclock, but at higher voltage levels.

We were a little surprised to see the previous machine’s better memory timings provide such a small difference in Sandra's Memory Bandwidth benchmark.
