The Asus P4G8X is defiantly a board aimed at overclocking; the maximum stable speed for the processor is 160MHz FSB. This incorporates into a 2.88GHz clock speed or 480MHz overclock with our Pentium 4 2.4GHz sample. We figure that this is a good test to see if the board is capable of overclocking past 150MHz FSB. Both boards we tested where capable of achieving 160MHz FSB @ 1.65Volts. It is worth taking note that the Gigabytes board RAM must run A Sync with the processor where in the default benchmarks it was running at 333 MHz. The reason for this is that the 845PE supports 333MHz memory and that is how it runs at default.
When overclocked the RAM was running only at 300MHz, so the memory was running slower. If you are fortunate enough to have memory that is capable of 400MHz at CAS 2, you will notice higher memory scores on the 845PE board.
Here we see an increase in both 3D Marks scores; the Granite Bay motherboard is still capable of holding the lead thanks to Dual Channel.
And in our final test, we see a drop in the 845PE board due to the reason mentioned above. The Granite Bay board takes a commanding lead when running at 300MHz Dual Channel.
