    Why all these CPU tests but nothing on motherboard chipset things like network speed/USB etc?

    Agreed, this would be kinda interesting since IIRC, Asus boasts about their USB speed, and once I had a cheap Chinese motherboard (can't remember who the manufacturer was; not even sure it was printed on the box) which if you copied USB to SATA, everything was fine, but if you copied from one USB drive to another, things went to USB 1 speed. The clock was weird too, it was slower than normal and by the end of a day, there was an hour or two difference. On the plus side, it artificially inflated my internet download speeds.

    One other thing I noticed was it broke AMD's 'Cool and Quiet' despite whatever you did in the BIOS, so the CPU was pegged all the time and the system ran hot.

    TLDR; spend good money on your mobo.
