I have decided to test the new platform in two ways. The Core i5 750 is one of the new LGA-1156 CPUs with four cores and a clock speed of 2.66GHz. Turbo mode lets the CPU operate at up to 3.2GHz and I ran tests with Turbo mode enabled and it disabled to show the performance differences with it enabled.
