Our test systems consist of a Crossfire setup since this is where the ASUS Blitz Formula and Blitz Extreme boards are designed to beat out other P35 boards, this simply because of their dual x8 bandwidth off the northbridge rather than having to go through the southbridge for the second card. Our test systems ran at 3GHz stock using the 9x multiplier and 1333MHz FSB. At overclocked speeds we saw the boards running a 6x multiplier with GIGABYTE using a 521MHz FSB and the ASUS a 527MHz FSB, very little in it really.

EVEREST Ultimate Edition is an industry leading system diagnostics and benchmarking solution for enthusiasts PC users, based on the award-winning EVEREST Technology. During system optimizations and tweaking it provides essential system and overclock information, advanced hardware monitoring and diagnostics capabilities to check the effects of the applied settings. CPU, FPU and memory benchmarks are available to measure the actual system performance and compare it to previous states or other systems.
ASUS' Blitz Formula equals the GIGABYTE board at standard clocks and just manages a few extra points in the overclocking results; since both are running almost equal overclocked speeds we didn't expect much here.
