Today's system comprises our X38 ASUS board against the king of our DDR3 platform, the GIGABYTE P35T-DQ6 which has managed to impress us with its overclocking abilities.
Our overclocking tests are pushed to the limits with regards to the FSB. Memory is always set to run 1:1 in overclocked mode. Our ASUS board ran with a 527 MHz FSB and our GIGABYTE P35-DQ6 ran with a 560MHz FSB, both using 6x multipliers.

EVEREST Ultimate Edition is an industry leading system diagnostics and benchmarking solution for enthusiasts PC users, based on the award-winning EVEREST Technology. During system optimizations and tweaking it provides essential system and overclock information, advanced hardware monitoring and diagnostics capabilities to check the effects of the applied settings. CPU, FPU and memory benchmarks are available to measure the actual system performance and compare it to previous states or other systems.
In our first test, at stock speeds the ASUS board is just ahead of the GIGABYTE board thanks to its ability to run the memory at lower latencies on X38 systems. When it comes to overclocking though, ASUS can't match the memory bandwidth of the P35T.
