Extreme FSB: Taking the E6750 Beyond 4 GHz


PC Mark's System Test shows the P35T-DQ6 with a noticeable lead, while MSI's record-tying overclock doesn't prevent it from dropping below the slower-clocked Blitz Extreme.

A tight race exists between the top-clocked boards in PC Mark's CPU Test, with the lower-clocked Blitz Extreme losing by a very small amount.

Gigabyte's full clock speed and fast DDR3 give it a huge lead over the lesser-clocked Blitz Extreme in PC Mark's memory test, with the DDR2-equipped P5K Premium making excellent use of its slower memory. The P35 Platinum starts out with the best performance, but its memory throughput amazingly decreases when the system is overclocked.
