MSI B360 Gaming Pro Carbon Motherboard Review

AIDA64 Engineer

AIDA64 Engineer is a multi-featured software suite for diagnostics, stress testing, benchmarking, software auditing and various other measurement parameters. We use AIDA64 Engineer to benchmark memory throughput and latency.

Sandra Memory Bandwidth

SiSoft Sandra 2017 is a multi-function utility program that supports remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, mobile devices and networks. We use the SiSoft Sandra memory bandwidth test to provide a set of memory bandwidth results.

Memory performance takes a hit compared to Z370 motherboards we previously tested, since the 3,200MHz memory is now limited to 2,666MHz. However, if Z370 using 2,666MHz were to be compared to B360 or H370 using 2,666MHz, we expect that performance would be near-identical.

However, it should be noted that overclocking the CPU can also enhance memory performance at the same memory frequency so Z370 definitely has the memory performance advantage. There is very little to separate all B360 and H370 motherboards on test.
