Looking forward to seeing OC capability.
Nope, as it says in the first post it performs about 4-7% better clock for clock. (3D looks to be a bit lower gains, while number crunching and encoding is everything from 5-8%)
In terms of OC capability i need some input on my bios settings that i posted earlier, i have not done much benching with Asus since 775 and there is a lot of new things here. As it is now i think i have a crappy chip, tried to load P95 @ 1.3v / 4.5Ghz to check the load temps, but one core failed after ~10min.
I'll finish the 4.5Ghz SB tests tomorrow / Sunday and then start to look at temps and overclocking on chilled water, before i get it under LN2 sometime next week. (As i mentioned any input and advice regarding my bios settings
is highly appreciated, this will not only help me on chilled water, but if i end up using this board on LN2 it will be of great help there as well, might use another MSI Z77 board for LN2)
