About AIDA64 Engineer

AIDA64 Engineer has a hardware detection engine unrivaled in its class. It provides detailed information about installed software and offers diagnostic functions and support for overclocking. As it is monitoring sensors in real time, it can gather accurate voltage, temperature and fan speed readings, while its diagnostic functions help detect and prevent hardware issues. It also offers a couple of benchmarks for measuring the performance of individual hardware components or the whole system. It is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows editions, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.

After seeing these results, you might wonder why we even did these tests in the first place. The findings were practically the same between the two configurations, and this should come as no surprise. As we were using identical memory modules configured the exact same way, it would be ludicrous to expect anything else. As the memory controller is integrated on the processor, the motherboard gets some time as a bench warmer, while the CPU is doing the hard work. On the flip side, the consistent nature of the Patriot Viper Elite PC4-24000 2x8GB, operating at DDR4-3000, is great to see. The detailed results are displayed in our benchmark result graphs above for both configurations of the Gigabyte GA-Z170N-Gaming 5.
