AIDA64

If we are 100% honest we are still not entirely sure about the AIDA results, they just seem a little 'too' good at the minute. We are waiting for some feedback from the guys that make the benchmark but these are the results that we have got with the Z170-A and the Hero. The really positive thing here from a reviewers prospective is you can see a clear difference in the scores from one to the other leading us to believe that this program really likes the extra BCLK achieved in our overclock.

Memory

The memory benchmarks got a welcome boost here too, the extra DRAM MHz coupled with the 4600MHz on the cache versus 4400MHz cache on the Z170-A has made a noticeable difference.
