I am sure ram is in play here... earlier I tried to dial in your multi and bus speed without knowing where your rams is speed and timing wise and I did a quick HT Enabled and HT Disabled.
I think LinX 0.6.5 would be better to gauge your flops? on my system IBT give more so conflicting results... even with the same bios settings and tests run after closing and opening another session of IBT.
there's something weird going on here with IBT and the IB-E... LinX 0.6.5 is inline showing a 2 flop difference, where IBT is reporting nearly and sometime over a 20 flop difference.
try the latest LinX... and let's pump that MSI up to 4.8Ghz
