Performance should be similar in most respects to the other 785 boards Iíve tested. The ASUS board is not overclocked by default and performance was interesting across the board. One thing to note is that I was finally able to set RAID 0 on two WD Raptor SATA drives on this motherboard after numerous tries on others without success.
