Our tests today consist of the P965 motherboard supplied to us by Gigabyte, the 965P-DQ6 and the Intel Bad Axe 2.
We wanted to show you the results of the two boards at both stock and overclocked speeds. When overclocked the Intel Bad Axe 2 ran at a FSB of 433MHz with a multiplier of 7x to give us a CPU clock speed of 3031MHz.
Our Gigabyte board ran at the same rate to determine if Intel's claim of tweaking the BIOS for greater memory performance does in fact hold up.
Let's get this show on the road and see how the Bad Axe 2 can perform.

SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.
At stock speeds, the Bad Axe 2 and the DQ6 are pretty well matched.
However, thanks to Intel's latency reducing technology that the Core 2 and P965 chipsets share, its manages to keep just ahead of the 975X chipset based Bad Axe 2.
Overclocked speeds show the same trend giving the more mainstream P965 the leg up.
