Intel XBX/Asus P5WDG2WS PRO

Recommended Posts

Using the Asus board for a few days so I"m comparing it to how I did with the Intel XBX board. With the exception of the board all the hardware is exactly the same. No difference in anything.

cpu= E6600

DDR= GSkill 6400 DDR2

Vid= 7950GX2

PS= PCP&C 510 SLI

 

Max Air stable OC Intel = 3.57 Asus= 3.645

Vcore Intel= 1.47 Asus= 1.47

MCH Voltage Intel= 1.75 Asus= 1.8

RAM Intel= 667 Asus= 533

 

Intel boot strap was 1333. Asus is 1067. Not sure how that works out but the Asus seems to adjust itself as it is clocked. I was unable to clock over about 3.2 using the 1067 boot strap in Intel.

 

All in all it looks like the Asus is going to give me a higher 100% stable overclock on air. Still haven't finished so will post if I get more later today.

I think because the lowest i can go on a Ram divider is 1:1 my Corsair XMS 6400 is maxing out at 830'ish mhz ......... i may try to loosen timings more and see if it'll go higher ...... but certainly gonna save for smoe GSkil PC2 1000

 

keep us posted Sho

No, I was able to sell it. That's the only way I would have been able to get another board. I gotta say that I really liked the BadAx. This asus is nice and I'm glad I got one but the Intel was a rock.

 

Looks like there's only going to be about a .030 difference in stable clocking. 3.57 for the intel and 3.6 for the Asus. I'm not testing phase cooling or max boot. Just 100 % stable clocks on air. In order for me to call it 100% stable it has to complete all Futuremark bench's, 8hrs of small FFT on dual SP200, 8hrs blend dual SP2004.

 

flew, I thought the Abit board was having problems getting 1/1 ram settings, or was that just with the OCZ memory?

seems to be only with OCZ ........ i havent seen anyone with issues using corsair or gskill but i do think the ram is gonna hold me back from going too much further .......... but it seems rock solid so far and the abit board has a lot of adjustments ..... but no 1333 boot strap just 1066 and lower but future bios update may provide it

Anyone running a Conroe on air post your air temps if you would please. Need to compare.

 

Yea because the team you might help win could be mine. :D
