Overclockers UK 8Pack Asteroid System Review

SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility. It should provide most of the information (including undocumented) you need to know about your hardware, software and other devices whether hardware or software.Sandra is a (girl’s) name of Greek origin that means “defender”, “helper of mankind”. We think that’s quite fitting.

It works along the lines of other Windows utilities, however it tries to go beyond them and show you more of what’s really going on. Giving the user the ability to draw comparisons at both a high and low-level. You can get information about the CPU, chipset, video adapter, ports, printers, sound card, memory, network, Windows internals, AGP, PCI, PCI-X, PCIe (PCI Express), database, USB, USB2, 1394/Firewire, etc.

OCUK’s Asteroid is fairly similar to the FiercePC Imperial Stormer we have also reviewed, which used the i7 6700K too but at a lower 4.7GHz clock speed.

Memory performance didn’t scale as much as we’d expect given the frequency difference between rival products. Nonetheless the dual channel 3,866MHz memory does perform blisteringly fast, even if it has marginal real-world impact compared to slower DDR4 memory.
