Edit: Should I use memset or make my changes directly in BIOS?
Actually, I do alot of gaming myself, and I too have found a plateau at around 3.15GHZ. After that, the max speed attainable by the 8800gtx series seem to plateau out and would only gain a few frames, up to 10fps in worst case, but on average like 3frames with a 800mhz difference.

HOWEVER, I have also recently benched some really really OLD games and found that games that were previously in frames like 300-400fps, I would gain 20fps and upwards... but at 300fps, you won't notice 20fps anyway.

Long story short, you're on the right track. Looking for speed/bandwidth elsewhere is probably better than clocking your CPU/GPU, but just realize you may or may not have already hit your sweet spot!

Actually, now that I look around the web, my system's actually doing better than some systems with SLI! I'm getting 14200's in 3dmark06... I'm not too unhappy about this stupid wall situation.... although if there wasn't a wall....>=(

the problem is that 3Dmark may give you higher marks but in non-quad optimized games those extra marks don't translate to extra FPS...

Very true, if current games used all the cores we'd be getting frame rates going though the roof.

When a Crysis demo appears it will be the best benchmark to see the real world difference between Quad vs Duo. My guess is it's going to be rather a lot. The castle demonstration and Kentsfield Ice Demo shows evidence of this already.

*nod* Either way it's a win win situation for quad owners *w00t*

anyway, I bench'ed at 370FSB, thought I'd share it

talking about a win win situation for Quad owners... yours truly gets his tomorrow "by 3pm" but knowing FedEx the'll wake my arse up at the crack of 10am

so... I finally broke down the puter to prep with the extra cooling I had purchased and lapp everything (I do mean everything)

check out the little mosfets all over the board 100% of them are fitted with little aluminum HS and much more has been covered with the extra swiftech's that were not needed now that I used the copper swiftech's on the CPU's mosfets o-v-e-r-k-i-l-l gotta love it... oh... and if you don't think it is overkill let me just tell u I lapped everything... and by everything I mean I actually lapped not only the SB cooler but also the copper mosfets... heehhehe stupid MOST DEFINITELY but being OCD and all it made me happy

BTW: you can not fit one coper swiftech per CPU mosfet unfortunately... I could have on some of them but I guess you don't want there to be a variance between their temps so I opted for placing them diagonally so that each HS contacts two mosfets... there is plenty of contact and the copper HS have more mass... do they have more surface area? dunno... maybe? maybe not? does the fact that they are made of copper help? I think so but not sure if it could ofset the possibility that they MAY have less surface area... MAY is the right word people... I think it is a close call..... and it these have more or equal surface area then they are the winner... without mentioning the better airflow from taller design and the extra space between the fins...

anywho... I am happy cause I OCD'ed for a few hours heheh

lol, just a little overkill, but it's AWESOME! deserve alot of props for that, good good stuff! I'm not sure how much it will help, but it will definitely help to some degree, given the difficulties we're having with this board.

hehehe help... I don't know it it really will at all.. but I had the stuff laying around and I reeeealy enjoyed it but hey... it might help keep it a touch cooler which might help me be stable at 373FSB instead of 372.9? heheheh

then again you might be right and I might actually be helping it... who knows... wish I could check.... BTW that is 8 black aluminum swiftech mosfet HS and like 15 tiny black aluminum HS like 5mm x 5mm x 5mm, then three aluminum bigger ones and then one set of copper swiftechs on the CPU mosfets... I had a second set of those but I decided to keep them in the package cause the sticky part isn't truly re-usable.... this way i can add it as a bonus on an E-Bay auction for say... my E6300?

OH!!!!! ABOUT THE EVERCOOL CLEARANCE:

I pushed the fins down instead of cutting them and that worked BUT the white port's tab still was a problem as it was too long and got in the way of the fan istelf... I did have to snip a little bit off the end... not happy about that at all but it can't hurt my RMA possibilities that much and in terms of resale it really doesn't affect the board at all... the lock remains functional
