System Setup and Benchmarks Used

Testing Setup

Our testing setup for this Asus Striker Extreme motherboard is the same as we used in our EVGA 680i motherboard.  For comparisons, we pit the Striker Extreme agains the EVGA nForce 680i SLI platform and the Asus P5W DH motherboard, based on the Intel 975X chipset.
