Test System

 

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad QX6700 @ 3GHz (9x333MHz)

 

Motherboard: GIGABYTE P35T-DQ6 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

 

Hard Disk: 500GB Seagate 7200.9 (Supplied by Seagate Australia)

 

Graphics Card: MSI GeForce 8800GTS 640MB (Supplied by MSI)

 

Cooling: GIGABYTE Neon775 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2

 

Drivers: Intel INF 8.3.1.1009, Forceware 163.21

 

Our test system consists of the P35T-DQ6 motherboard which is proven to be our best DDR3 memory overclocking platform we have. It manages to reach FSB speeds hitting 580MHz, so we know it is able to be pushed if needed. It also has some good memory dividers so we are able to overclock memory while keeping FSB and CPU speeds as stable as possible. Today we pit the Xtune against OCZ's XMP1600 modules which have proven to be clockable to 1700+MHz on this board. We used 1600MHz speeds with these modules as it's the highest official speed available when using XMP so far.

OCZ's XMP range has a lower latency at both overclocked and stock speeds; this gives OCZ a slight leg up in our raw bandwidth test.
