In the reviews I've seen where they test 5 boards all with the same chipset you see little to no difference in CPU performance but different controllers could have different speeds although probably not something you could tell outside of benchmarks.
Our new motherboard reviews will focus on features, board layout connectivity and very little cpu performance. We will link to the processor review that was tested on the board but there will be limited system benchmarks.
We will be testing lan connectivity, USB 3.0 , SATA - onboard and eSATA layout and function of the board (mostly subjective) as per system we will use AIDA and PC Mark 7, Multithreaded apps will be Winrar and cinebench, video we will use Media show. Then of course the videos etc.
We will also look at fan headers and controls.
