Testing time and today we are pitting the Flaming Blade against the already tested Blood Rage and the ASUS P6T Deluxe OC Palm Edition board which is our test bed setup.


Our suite of tests have not changed, nor our testing methods. All are done at stock settings using the default CPU multiplier and BLCK. We then did OC tests which are the highest BLCK/CPU/RAM frequencies we managed to get from each board.

Foxconn Quantum Force X58 Flaming Blade Motherboard


EVEREST is first on our list. Looking at the stock results we see that the three platforms perform near identically. When we get to overclocking, despite the higher CPU clock speed of the Flaming Blade over the Blood Rage, this is more to do with memory and the 175MHz BLCK/RAM setup of the Blood Rage beats out the 150MHz BLCK/RAM setup of the Flaming Blade.
