Our test system has not changed in some time and the usual array of benchmarks have been run including the addition of Battlefield 2142 for good measure.

Our overclocking tests are pushed to the limits with regards to the FSB. The memory is always set to run 1:1 in overclocked mode. Our ASUS board ran with a 527 MHz FSB and our GIGABYTE PX38T-DQ6 ran with a 532MHz FSB, both using 6x multipliers.

At stock speeds we used an FSB of 333MHz and 9x multiplier to get 3GHz out of the system. We also set the memory ratio to 1333MHz which is the highest this board supports without going to XMP mode and using a 400MHz FSB.

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.

At stock speeds we see no difference between the two boards. When overclocking takes over we see a slight rise from the GIGABYTE board with only a marginal FSB increase over the ASUS Maximus Extreme.
