ASRock P55 Deluxe Motherboard Review :: Test Setup and Software

We test the system with both Turbo Mode enabled and disabled, as the Core i5 is designed to clock up to 3.2GHz in Turbo mode. The Performance part of features is based on the base clocks of 2.66GHz as Turbo Mode can be spotty when dependent on voltage and temperatures of the system.
