My System Specs


The best I could get out of my XBX2 was 457FSB with my E6400 on the 8X multi. What I can tell you was that clock for clock it smoked my EVGA 680i even tho my EVGA could get more FSB out of my chip.

I loved my XBX2 but the only thing I hated was the stupid clip retention for the NB. So terrible for watercooling...

Going from 2.13GHz to 3.6GHz is a nice OC. Way to go. Congrats. The Bad Axe 2 is a great OCer. Got any pics of your setup?
