Test System Setup
Processor(s): AMD Athlon 64 3800+
Motherboard(s): ASUS A8N-SLI DELUXE (Supplied by ASUS)
Memory: 2 X 512MB OCZ DDR400 2-2-2-5 (Supplied by OCZ Technology)
Hard Disk(s): Western Digital Raptor 74GB 10,000 RPM SATA (Supplied by Western Digital)
Operating System: Windows XP Professional SP1
Drivers: nVidia 77.40 GPU driver, nVidia 6.11 BETA chipset drivers and DX9c
As we have mentioned already we will be comparing the system against itself at its stock speeds and our maximum overclocked speeds. As we mentioned the processor has moved from 2.4GHz to 2.556GHz and our SLI setup is now running at a cool 420MHz/1234MHz compared to the stock 400MHz/1100MHz.
We are using the nVidia 77.40 BETA drivers as we found we received the best stability and performance with these drivers.
Let's not delay it any longer and have a look at what we have been waiting for the whole time and get into the benchmarks for this pure performance beast.

SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.
You can clearly see in all three graphs that the overclocked system gives us both an increase in memory and CPU bandwidth.
