Benchmarked Configurations


2.4c @ 2.4Ghz (CPU FSB: 800MHZ / MEMORY FSB: 200MHZ)
2.4c @ 3.2Ghz (5:4 Divider)(CPU FSB: 1068MHZ / MEMORY FSB: 189MHZ)
3.2EE @ 3.2Ghz (1:1 Divider)(CPU FSB: 800MHZ / MEMORY FSB: 200MHZ)
3.2EE @ 3.7Ghz (1:1 Divider)(CPU FSB: 924MHZ / MEMORY FSB: 231MHZ)


Both configurations are run at locked 1:1 memory and CPU FSB divider.


Benchmarking Explained


The benchmarking is going to be kept very simple and to the point. What I will be illustrating through the testing is the performance difference comparing a stock 2.4C, an overclocked 2.4C at 3.2Ghz, a stock 3.2EE and an overclocked 3.2EE at its max overclock of 3.7Ghz.


Though I did have a 3.0C in the test lab, it was an Intel engineering sample and didn't represent the actual retail product that the consumer would be able to purchase. What I did have was a retail 2.4C that I purchased myself and I wanted to see and illustrate the performance difference of a 2.4C overclocked to 3.2Ghz when compared through benchmarking to a stock 3.2EE.
