Windows XP Professional w/SP2
All tests were run using a clean install of 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 2.0 vDimm at DDR2 800. Timings for our overclocking were left 4-4-4-12 and 2.0v, but the ram divider was set to the lowest possible to take any ram issues out of the CPU overclocking. 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, plus the ability to complete a SuperPi 32mb test run.
For our voltage readings at default settings, we ran everything at stock speeds, and DDR settings settings of DDR800 and 4-4-4-12, at 2.0v.
Our overclocked settings on our Asus p5ne-sli were a fsb of 401, with a CPU mulitplier of 9, using a vcore of 1.5. DDR was kept at DDR800 speeds and 4-4-4-12, but we raised the vdimm to 2.4v to stress the system even more. We also raised the other available voltages on the board to the middle of available settings.
Our system also has 2 x 120mm fans connected to it.
All voltages were read by a Digital Multimeter that was purchased at Radio Shack.
