MSI's P35 Platinum started out the fastest at base speed, but actually lost performance from overclocking in Call of Duty 2. Later benchmarks will show a possible reason.
F.E.A.R puts the "least overclockable" Asus Blitz Extreme in the lead. Gigabyte's P35T-DQ6 swapped positions with it across several retests, but the Blitz Extreme still led by about one-half frame per second on average.
Quake 4 sees the board with the highest memory and CPU speed, Gigabyte's P35T-DQ6, in its rightful place.
