Test System Setup


Processor: Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz EE (800MHz FSB) (Supplied by Spectrum Communications)
Memory: 2x 512MB DDR-533 OCZ (Supplied by OCZ)
Hard Disk: Western Digital 120GB 7,200RPM PATA (Supplied by Plus Corporation)
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon 9800XT (Supplied by Gigabyte)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2
Motherboard: ABIT IC7 MAX3


Overclocking Results


To do our overclocking results we ran a series of 3DMark03 tests over 20 mins each to determine the most stable FSB possible with each voltage step.


For this we set the motherboard to use its default DDR voltage and allowed the booster to work its magic. We also tested the booster against the ABIT IC7 MAX3's own DDR voltage to see what works better.



Here we can see that when pushing beyond 2.8v the ABIT IC7 MAX3's own voltage system is simply not good enough and this is where OCZ manages to really shine as you can see.
