Our overclocking results were anything but stellar on this board. We were hoping for much better results, but, it is what it is, so it comes down to the end-user and what his needs are to determine if the lack of great overclocking is an issue. The board was able to do a max overclock of 237HTT, which is far below what we have been getting with the Phenom II CPU. Even when we lowered the multiplier on the CPU, we were not able to get any better results at all. Just to give you an idea about how this overclock can affect your system, we ran a quick Cinebench 10 test to see what difference in scores we would get. Here are the results:
With the overclock up to 237HTT, we were able to get about an 11% better score in Cinebench 10. Not bad at all!
