Today we aren't doing any overclocking. This is going to be done in a separate article dubbed Phenom II vs. Core i7 vs. Core 2 to determine just what makes for a better CPU.

 

Today's tests are to compare the CPU to the other processors on the market at stock levels.

 

Important Editor Note: Our maximum overclocking result is the best result we managed in our limited time of testing the motherboard. Due to time constraints we weren't able to tweak the motherboard to the absolute maximum and find the highest possible FSB, as this could take days to find properly. We do however spend at least a few hours overclocking every motherboard to try and find the highest possible overclock in that time frame. You may or may not be able to overclock higher if you spend more time tweaking, or as new BIOS updates are released. "Burn-in" time might also come into play if you believe in that.
