Operating System

Windows XP Professional w/SP2

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.  Our stock speed testing used Corsair DDR2 C6400C4 2 GB kit at 1.8 vDimm.  The ASROck board had to be run at DDR2 667, as that was the best available.  The Gigabyte was tested at DDR2800.  Timings for our overclocking were left 4-4-4-12 and 1.8v, 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.
