When it came to overclocking this board, there were high hopes, as we have already had some good success with this chipset on the Asus P5N-E SLI. That board has been our monster overclocker since the day we got it. We were able to push that board to 401fsb at our default 9x multiplier, and an astounding 496fsb with a 6x multiplier. You can see the results here. It is also one of the reasons that we called the 650i the 680i killer. As stated, we had high hopes for this board. In the end though, there was some disappointment with things that ECS either did or did not do. First, out high overclock was
385fsb. That is not really too bad, but reality is, that both the 680i chipset and the Asus 650i board that we tested could do 400+ fsb, putting this board a little behind. Here is a pic of our overclocking journey:
Unfortunately, ECS did not include a multiplier adjustment in the bios for this board, so we could not test any further.
