Test System

Processor: Intel Core i7 Extreme 965 (24x133MHz)

Motherboard: ASUS P6T Deluxe OC Palm (Supplied by ASUS)

Hard Disk: Intel SSD X25-M80GB (Supplied by Intel.)

Graphics Card: GIGABYTE 9800GX2 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

Cooling: Intel Stock Cooling

Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista X64 SP1

Drivers: Intel INF, Forceware 178.24

Today's tests see us using the Core i7 again with the ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboard. This board is impressive to say the least and has proven to overclock if need be. With this being our first and only DDR3 triple channel kit, we haven't anything to really test it against, so we will be doing it alone for this round.

For our stock tests we used a 1066MHz clock which is the highest JEDEC standard that the Core i7 supports; Intel hasn't used 1333MHz specs on the Core i7. We then move up to the XMP profile on the modules which is 1600MHz and finally we clock manually to our highest speed which was 1650MHz using the XMP timings.

Starting off with EVEREST we see that the Core i7 really loves memory bandwidth, thanks to its on-package memory controller. Moving from 1066MHz to 1600MHz we see a bit of a boost in the synthetic memory performance. However, when going from 1600MHz to 1650MHz there is almost no improvement.
