Doh!

I just forgot to change the voltage to 2.1v. With 1.85v, the gkills don't boot because of a lack of voltage

Yes: 2.0-2.1v

You'd expect this kind of high-end ddr2 memory to boot at 667MHz 1.85v, though.

Review is almost done; doing the last overclocking tests at the moment, which basicly consists of benching all the hwbot benchmarks for extra points for the team.

In contrary to the IGP on the Foxconn and Dfi motherboard, this one does actually overclock véry good. At the moment, I'm benching at 1000MHz core frequency!

I'll run a Crysis benchmark at stock and overclocked speeds :-).

Overclocking tips can be found in the article, by the way

1100MHz core seems to be stable ... just air cooling

800x600 0xAA 0xAF details @ high seems playable at FPS rates between 16-20FPS.

1680x1050 4xAA 0xAF details @ high is not playable

20 fps at high is quite good; but maybe at low-med settings you can run at 1024x768

for review, I'll use this:

800x600 high, no AA or AF
1024x768 medium, no AA or AF
1280x1024 low, no AA or AF
