Our test system has been upgraded now to run the Gigabyte P35-DQ6 motherboard, which even in its infancy has proven to be a very good board for the price as well as its feature set.


Its overclocking has already surpassed that of the P965 board, and is set to go higher with future BIOS updates. For our Memory tests we ran Everest, PCMark, ScienceMark, Adobe Premiere Elements and Prey which gives us a mix of synthetic, real-world applications and real-world gaming results.


Let's get this show on the road and see how Crucial's latest high-end performance RAM performs.
