well you should use all your muli...if not y didnt you get a q6600?
just raise fsb and voltage.

If it was like my setup with a E8400, it maxed out at around 3.8GHz ish with max recommended Vcore. I then found better overall performance with 8 x 480 compared to 9 x 425.

Probably much cheaper to buy a E8200 to begin with (maybe next time) but then how do you know it could get to 3.8GHz with recommended voltages as well?

SlicketyRickety:

Could you please give us ORB links for BOTH scores? Thanks

And how do other (more relevant) benchmarks perform, such as SuperPi (1MB and 32MB) and the CPU score of 3DMark06. I don't care too much about a GPU benchmark when comparing CPU performance

It may sound strange but true: My PC has better memory results as well at 400 FSB (running @1280 MHz) than it does at 444 FSB (running @1333 MHz) ... while my CPU divider remains equal (8x) ... the results are 8.692 versus 7.763 read ... quite a large difference!

So, even the memory frequency is no guaranty to better results! I think the big difference may be the 1N or 2N ... plus, at 400 FSB I actually manage to run CL 8-6-6-15 while I have to loosen it to 9-9-9-24 at 444 FSB, but that wasn't taken into account when benching as I benched both at 9-9-9-24.

But in the overall performance tests, especially 3DMARK06, 444 FSB kicks ass any time!

Heres the first one 3.5@1400 FSB



The next 3.2@1640 seems 3.5 with lower FSB is faster in this test

Hmmmm..... interesting. So in pure CPU benchies (SuperPi), the higher clockspeed wins, but in graphics benchmarks the lower clockspeed/higher FSB wins.

I'd love to see the ORB links of your 3DMark scores, so I can dig a little deeper into this.

Right now, I am thinking about this theory: The higher FSB frees up more bandwidth for the powerful GPU(s). This extra bandwidth increases the GPU scores in 3DMark06. I won't be surprised to see that the set up with the higher FSB/lower clockspeeds shows higher GPU and a lower CPU score.

So many people complain about a CPU bottleneck with current videocards, which I always found odd, since modern CPUs are more than powerful enough to keep up with *ANY* GPU. However, your results make me think that there actually might be an FSB bottleneck. Interesting.

PLEASE give me the ORB links... since you have ran the benchies already, it should be easy for you to provide them.

Thanks.
