You should be aware that the minimum 64-byte packet size does not count the 8-byte ethernet frame preamble (well, 7 bytes of preamble and 1 byte called the "start frame delimiter"), which means that you'll only be able to get a theoretical maximum of about 87 Mbps of packet data through at the 64-byte packet size.
