All tests were run using a clean install of Windows Vista Ultimate 64 Bit and Windows XP Professional with SP2 . For our stock speed tests, we ran everything at default timings for the CPU.  Our stock speed testing used Corsair DDR2 C6400C4 2 GB kit at 1.9 vDimm  at DDR2 800.  Overclocking led us to using every imaginable setting under the sun, including adding extra power from a spare car battery sitting in our garage (not really, but we thought about it!).  Really though, we tried everything to get as much as possible out of the system.  We will describe that a little better on the overclocking results page.
