Default Asus Striker II Extreme Review

The Striker II Extreme can overclock, but unfortunately, not quite to the level I have achieved on several other boards with this processor. Given the dearth of settings in the BIOS, it does take time to find a nice stable overclock. Pretty much every voltage and many of the memory sub-timings needed to be tweaked for maximum performance. My CPU is capable of 470MHz FSB, but due to the way the dividers are managed, I was only able to get stable at 450 MHz (1800MHz); the memory, on the other hand, was good up to 1000MHz (2000MHz). These speeds did not require massive voltages to get the job done. In fact the memory only needed 1.86 volts to hit that number. While 450 and 1000MHz are nice, the performance hit from running the memory unlinked is noticeable on this Nvidia board. With that in mind, I went to the well again and set the memory to Linked and Synced, which matches the memory and CPU FSB and essentially gives a 1:2 CPU to RAM ratio. By doing this, the performance increases dramatically, and this is how I ran the overclocked benchmarks.
