Default Natural Sub-Zero Overclocking

Not long ago we reviewed a few Intel 915 motherboards here on PC Perspective. In response to one of those articles, Robert (a reader who linked in from [H]ardOCP) wrote me giving me input on the overclocking tests featured in the articles – specifically addressing the importance of synchronous CPU-Memory overclocking at the default multiplier.

While I agree that doing this kind of synchronous with default multiplier overclocking is important, I prefer to use a 14x multiplier (vs. the 18x default) and asynchronous settings because it gives us a better idea of how the motherboard itself functions at high frequencies without the RAM or CPU being bottlenecks.

But Robert’s comments got me thinking, what if I got these LGA775 motherboards cool enough so I can test using the default multiplier with synchronous RAM… ? So using Robert’s email as inspiration, I’ve taken the Chaintech V915P, the Asus P5GDC-V Deluxe, and the ABIT AG8 and put them in sub-zero temperatures for some serious overclocking!

Since we are only testing 3 motherboards, it's hardly enough data to make grand conclusions like “the best 915P” overclocker. This is just an interesting experiment whether the results are useful or not.

What have I learnt after reading the article?

1) Overclocking is not soley dependant on temperature.
2) Overclocking is more dependant on "the CPU'.

Lesson learnt - before I spend my hard earned money on Vapor Chill; I should make good use of "mother nature" and look for a CPU that "can do".

But, get youself something real warm to wear before hand.
