All tests were run using a clean install of Windows XP Professional with SP2. Both boards used the latest release bios.  For our stock speed tests, we ran everything at default timings for the CPU.  For both boards, our stock speed testing used OCZ 4000 Platinum 2 GB kit, at speeds of 2-3-2-5 DDR400, and 2.7vDimm.  Timings for our overclocking were set to 2.5-3-3-8 ans 2.8v.  The video card was left at default timings as well for all tests.  For this review, stability was determined by running our battery of tests 3 times, plus being able to complete 3 passes of memtest86 and the ability to complete a SuperPi 32mb test run.
