USB 3.0 and SATA 3

SATA and USB 3.0 controllers are sometimes run on the chipset and other times manufactures add additional controllers to add more ports. This can lead to inconsistent performance on both. So how did the X99S MPower perform? Well on the SATA side of things it came in just a touch faster than the other two boards. For USB 3.0 the Asus board still pulled ahead when running Asus’s USB 3.0 Turbo but beyond that the MPower outperformed the EVGA board.

Today I take a look at another X99 motherboard, this time something with a little lower price point compared to the other boards I have tested.
