Gigabyte EP45-DS3R Motherboard
Once again the Gigabyte board did not let us down managing to pip the Asus P5Q-E in the stable FSB test. When continued past 505 the machine started freezing on post or locking up once into the operating system.
With the above settings in place we ran a memory bandwidth test again in SiSoft Sandra to observe the gains of the overclock.
The memory bandwidth was increased by 39%-40% after using the 505MHz FSB, a great number for the board and adds to its great all around performance.
