Test Rig & Methods

Our testing has changed a bit with Windows 10, as we disable automatic updates so that the machine isn’t downloading updates while we test. We clear the cache and prefetch before test runs, and disable the firewall and virus scanner. Windows 10 is updated as much as possible and we manually go on and select updates applying all patches and updates prior to beginning the testing. We run a single SSD or multiple SSD’s so there’s no drive indexing going on. We shut down the Internet to insure no background task is checking for updated virus definitions. All non-mandatory system-tray icons are closed.

The Windows install is done fresh for every review, and we install all the latest drivers and utilities for the motherboard. We leave the system at the normal overclock (in this case 4500MHz) but the RAM is left at factory speed for benchmarks. We do run a picture of the stock speed benchmark on one benchmark, then run an overclocked benchmark to show the boost you get from the overclocking.
