Default Eight P35-DDR2 Motherboards Compared

Here's something that might come in handy: a comparison of eight p35s, and just for reference, they toss in the p5b deluxe and a 650i. In gaming, the Asus came out on top, but overall the MSI won out at stock speeds but its overclocking sucked. The Gigabytes seem to be where it's at for the OC enthuusiast, but it's always best to consider multiple reviews, whah?- I would have thought they should have gotten higher FSB speeds than that.

An insignificant performance lead for the MSI P35 Platinum might be nullified by the fact that the same board finished near the bottom in overclocking, a repeat of the performance seen in the company's previous P965 Platinum. With less than one-half percent performance difference, Gigabyte's exceptionally-overclockable GA-P35-DQ6 is probably a better choice for anyone who'd even consider tinkering with bus speeds.

459FSB is the highest they got? Pretty weak CPU then, my DQ6 will do 525MHz (CPU max methinks) no problem.
