My theory that the intel chipset might outperform the nvidia with a single GPU is looking a little shaky.
3dmark scores a bit inconsistent is what I have found over the past 19 years of benchmarking all the way back to 3dmark99. I always run the benchmark 4 times and then calculate the average median score out of the 4 varying scores from the 4 runs.

Aquamark prove to be a little bit more consistent on older hardware.

Yeah don't know Atmo. All the best scores I've seen done on 780i type boards.
They are darn expensive now.

965 chipset scores 800 less, that looks better than I thought it would do.

You need some good GB and Asus P965 or P975 chipset boards for better scores, Foxconns and MSI's usually lower than the flock.

For overclocked Kentsfield and Yorkfield quads the P45 and X48's are your cream of the clock for high overclocks, something all nvidia chipset boards fail to ascertain on a comparative level with high quadcore overclocks.

You have some of these good boards still Mathew? As I said earlier, not tried anything Intel till Ivy Bridge was released. Always a AMD fanboi

Keen to hear " can you link me in pm's " about you experience with the good scoring parts. Seriously shithouse to get this machine over 407fsb, figure it's a setting pushed up too high in the bios......+ it's bugging me not knowing what that limit is.

50% OC from the e6600 comes fairly easy. No wonder they were such a favorite.

Interesting. What to benchmark first. I have an old 200mhz Pentium, Ill have to see what PCI cards I have floating about.

Next on the list perhaps a 500mhz k6, or maybe a P3.

I can see myself spending abit of time tweaking the old Pentium

Don't own them anymore but here is a list of good overclockers, if you can find them at all anywhere.

P965

Asus Commando
Asus P5B Deluxe
Gigabyte GA-965-DS4/DQ6

P975

Asus P5W Deluxe range

P35 chipset

Foxconn P35 Mars
Asus P5K range
Practically all Gigabyte and Asus full-sized atx motherboards

X38 chipset

DFI Lanparty LTX38-T2R

P45 chipset

Biostar TPower I45
Asus P5Q Deluxe/Pro
Gigabyte GA-EP45-DQ6/DS3R
Gigabyte GA-EP45T-Extreme
Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P/DS4P

X48 chipset

Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6
Asus Rampage Extreme

nvidia chipsets but these boards are only excellent overclockers with dual cores, they absolutely suck with pushing quads to high limits which is why people favoured the Intel P35 and above chipsets to them.

Asus Striker 2 Extreme (original sucked)
Evga ultra 680i and 790i chipset boards.

What agp card is that? Sapphire ATi 1950 Pro ?

Love the Corsair XMS Pro DDR modules. Have a 512MB stick myself. Can do ultra low latency timings at 20-40% overclocked DRAM speeds.

Gainward 6800 Ultra. Beast of a thing.......but no match for Atmo's 7950gt

Looked at the Asus Commando, but scores were down. Maybe better on newer drivers. I'm using this one......Asus P5W DH Deluxe

As you say Asus Striker 2 Extreme (original sucked) Amto looky

Can find the decent boards still, but it cost a packet bidding them

If you want high fsb overclocks the Biostar Tpower P45 mobo broke a few records back in the days reaching 700 mhz fsb +.

If you really want high overclocks you're going to have to look at P35 and newer chipsets. The P965 and 975's don't compare.

The original Striker Extreme did suck, all bling with copper and no balls with Kentsfield or Yorkfield quads when overclocking.

Overclocking quads with any 680i board is pretty much a waste of time, but the 790i, P35, X38 don't fit the 10 year rule yet...neither do the quads (until January).

Shane: Which CPU are you using? 2.5 is a nice overclock either way.

That's a lowly xp-m 2400..........but I've hit that wall with that one.
Battling temps on the gpu / either that's making it fall over OR the fsb on 208

Good score on a x1950pro though, not known as good in this benchmark.
Limited I think 600core/700mem.......so maybe a sucky clocker

edit. 36 ambient

Here's another one.......but it's not going to do it with an Ati graphics.
Must go look for another. BRB

Other single slot x1950pro was the issue. Just too hot & stressed.
Dual slot x1950pro in. Cpu-Z won't load " freezes the OS " Faaark it

Bring out the sandbags Atmo
