Calculation

Our last bunch of synthetic tests is an encapsulation of what we've seen so far. Very little between all of the motherboards although now and again the stock Impact claws its way up from the foot of our graph. Oddly whenever it does it's usually at the same time as the overclocked result falls to the foot of the OC mobos.

These series of boards since the P8Z77i Deluxe have been fantastic.
I gave the Z87 impact a swing.

I'm not audiophile by any means, but if there is choice between the two, I prefer better audio (output, in-game, etc) than video quality, especially on games with very immersive story lines.
My quibble:
The separate sound card board quality is fantastic, but is somewhat lessened by not having analog outputs for anything beyond 5.1 surround. I know it's a much lower market for users looking for things over 5.1, but personally I hated having to have analog cable extensions for the reach-around to the side panel outputs to hit 7.1 channels. When such a premium piece of tech is let loose into the wild, the details become a lot more important. It seems like there is some room for a 'bump-out' to the left of the sound card outputs that could fit the extra sockets easily.
