I have always wanted to get an SR-2 but its been one of those dream boards lol I wonder if it can achieve the same overclocks of the X5660's in the other thread...
Well, I can not tell you for sure because the only time I had my SR-2 and x5679's up and running is when I initially tested everything lol. That was almost a year ago. I can tell you that the SR-2 in particular tends to hit a wall around the 200 BCLK range. Beyond that you are lucky
So to kind of answer your question, the chips will generally have more OC headroom on an decent x58 board because they usually are capable of higher BCLK's.

Anyway, I'm very happy with replacement, so far so good, finger X
Glad you have it up and running
