And to be honest i'm very surprised at this result considering the DQ6 had the WORST fsb overclock records when it was released.

EDIT: And whats with the 17s SuperPI @ 3.6ghz - i can pull 14sec with 400x9.

I think it's because as u stated in the first paragraph, it's actually a POS board. Coolaler just happened to get one that can handle some serious FSB.

Actually it was someone on his forums who did it, may explain the terrible Pi time.

Thats why he..

-Could get that high of an FSB
-Could get it stable enough to run 32m
-Got such a chit spi time.

You probably didn't notice it was single channel too.

In order to get such high FSB, you need to baby the chipset like mad. Some people seem to forget, that the memory controller is on the chipset for Intel CPU's, and on the CPU for AMD 64.

Yep

I did notice it was single channel which I'm not prepared to sacrifice just to get high clocks :)

And yeah I've noticed that the chipset is a PITA - just wish either:

Intel used an on-die memory controller

or

AMD would sort it out and get something that kills Conroe :)
