Today we'll be checking out the Sapphire Pure Black P67 Hydra with our i7 2600k CPU against two of our X58 boards that we've had up and running in recent times. The first is our ASRock X58 Extreme3 and the original Pure Black motherboard from Sapphire - the Pure Black X58. Both those boards will be using our high end i7 980X CPU and the Sapphire Pure Black X58 will also have results from when our 980X was running at 4.4GHz.
On the video card front we're using the Sapphire HD 6970 2GB video card which is different to what we used when we tested the above X58 boards. For that reason we've removed the above boards from our video card tests which are included along with both the power and CPU heat numbers.
Along with all that, we've got our overclocking results from the Sapphire Pure Black P67 Hydra. P67 overclocking is of course a little different to previous Intel chipset overclocking and instead the focus is more on the multiplier of the CPU instead of the BCLK which is limited to only 110 on the P67 platform.
We pushed the multiplier up to 47 which meant out i7 2600k came in 4.7GHz. This is a good overclock, but not the strongest I've seen from the 2600k we have. We managed to push the BCLK up to 105 which is strong, but we would lose network. Because of that, we instead just chose to leave the BCLK at 100 and stick with 4.7GHz.
Let's get started!
