Extreme FSB: Taking the E6750 Beyond 4 GHz

Synthetic, Continued

The P5K Premium takes a marginal lead in Sandra's math tests, and once again the least-overclocked Blitz Extreme falls into its expected position.

The three clock-matched boards again come to a virtual tie in Sandra's multimedia extensions tests.

Gigabyte's P35T-DQ6 achieves a momentous victory in Sandra's memory bandwidth test, with the DDR2-equiped Asus P5K Premium putting spark back into the old DIMMs. MSI's results point to an apparent drop to single-channel mode when overclocking beyond 500 MHz FSB clock, but the board still reported dual-channel mode as active.
