Got a decent OC with the i7 3960X processor on it. 100% load for over an hour
Thanks Kip, very nice. Couldn't get 5GHz huh?

Have to careful with these new boards; new BIOS update are coming in fast. With the X79 Chipset you no longer have the separate North and South Bridges, just the one chip.

The VRM is protected by a small heatsink and there has been a couple of these boards that have actually caught fire and taken out the processors at the same time.

I have my test benches setup with extra direct cooling on the VRM area as well as cooling the processor with water but still keep a close eye on the MB temps as well as the processor temps.

The new BIOS from what I can tell is keeping a better eye on the temps and will cause throttle on CPU speed to help with the temps and have other nice tweaks with them to boot.

So far the best OC'ing board I have tested is the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe hitting 5GHz on it is pretty simple.

Great review, as usual.

Nice to see a full featured m-ATX board.

The Asus should overclock well. For almost $400 for a board, it should install the CPU for you too.

I knew you were pulling my leg Bill, LOL

But, I thought I would take the opportunity to expound a little just in case anyone gets one of these new toys and maybe just maybe burns things up.

I'm not sure of the reaspn, but the truth is that, at least with the P67 and Z68 boards, the FSB in bios is 100 and CPUz reads ir as 99.8. I don't know if it is a Sandy Bridge fault ot a CPUz fault, but everyone I've seen is that way. Although it is considered a no-no, I changed mine to 100.2 and CPUz reads it as 100.2. If you change it from auto to manual and set it to 100, it is still read as 99.8. Go figure!

I have no idea why I got this ridiculus reading, it is actually exactly twice the true speed and multiplier. Intel Burn Test running at the time.
Is that real ???

Yup, it is real, but not accurate at all. CoreTemp decided, for some reason, to double the freq and multi setting. I was running at half of what is displaed.
