CrystalMark 2004R3 => 295310

CPU => 5.42 pts
CPU(Single Core) => 1.48 pts

CPU => 6.06 pts
CPU(Single Core) => 1.57 pts

CINEBENCH R11.5 can see single core performance increases 6% and quad cores performance increases 11.8%.

Running Time => 8m 12s
x264 FHD Benchmark => 16.2

Running Time => 7m 18s
x264 FHD Benchmark => 18.2

Both above software performance increase about 12%.

PCMark Vantage => 18719

PCMark Vantage => 20435

You can see i5-3450 can do some OC by Z77 chipset.
The single core performance is up 6% and quad cores are up to 12~13%. It does improve the overall performance.

DDR3 Test
Default is DDR3 1334.8 CL7 8-7-21 1T
ADIA64 Memory Read - 16082 MB/s
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 17526 MB/s
MaXXMEM Memory-Copy - 18004 MB/s

DDR3 Test
XMP mode is DDR3 1868.6 CL10 11-11-30 2T
ADIA64 Memory Read - 19208 MB/s
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 23583 MB/s
MaXXMEM Memory-Copy - 21263 MB/s

DDR3 clock pull from 1333 to 1866, the performance increases 18.1~34.6% upon different software.
Even though Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge DDR3 bandwidth in same clock are similar,
Ivy Bridge can pull DDR3 clock higher than Sandy Bridge if memory quality is good enough.

SSD is another key tool to enhance system performance. In the past two months, itís annual price dropping time for SSD.
128 or 256GB SSD price drops around 30~50%. Itís good news for all users.
I am using CORSAIR Performance Pro 256GB which is higher capacity for easily arrangement.
Letís look at packing first. This series is official 3 years warranty by CORSAIR.
