All our benchmarks are taken from a series of five results which helps to ensure that any erroneous figures are removed from the final results. All bioses and firmwares are updated, as is Windows 7 64 bit. Obviously when moving between slot 1156 and 1366 processors we need to use a different motherboard (Asus Rampage in this case) so it is hard to directly compare results but we felt it was worth undertaking – just for the sake of being thorough.
