Also if you look at some of the nforce4 chipsets, the boards they list dont support the cpu they have listed.
my 24/7 speed of 2.75ghz 500mhz ram, stock graphics cards scored me 10990. The "Best in the world" according to your website is 12,000 for my chipset and was an amd2 +6000. So id imagine I am already setting "world records" unless I am missing something.
Like I said, orb has more detailed comparisons, but I wonder if people are cheating the hardware confirmations and was wondering if you could also post one by socket type 939. That was my original question.
As Kryton said, a lot of boards don't officially support a certain CPU --yet they still work anyway. Such was the case with my first build. I used an A8N32SLi deluxe and it didn't, and probably still doesn't, officially support Opteron CPUs', yet they work just fine.
That is probably the case with your board as well.

With my sli 8800gt, Im doubt I get much or any increase from an overclock on my graphics cards.
I doubt your're getting any benefit from the overclock on your GPUs'. I know that with my 9600 GSO's (8800GTS), there was very little improvement when going from a single GPU to dual. Overclocking the CPU helped more than overclocking the cards themselves.
However, I was able to get some pretty nice results with overclocking a single card. With my Opty 180 @ 3.0, and with one GSO overclocked by approximately 30%, I was able to run Crysis @ 1680x1050, 16xAA, 16xAF all on high (DX9), and average 25.3 FPS in the benchmark. I was rather impressed quite honestly.
Regardless, 939 CPUs' simply don't have enough processing power for GPUs' more than 8800's. Even those get bottlenecked quite a bit by 939's. For instance, I only gained 1000 points in 3Dm06 from one card to two. Yet on my i7, I believe it added approx 2700 points.

My rig from the front (pulled out the restrictive fan filters in the front):
For a hot minute there, I thought it was a NF4 DFI board in there.
Lookin good Pio.
OMG! That's expensive for those.
I bought one for $30 brand spankin new!
