PCMark Vantage is currently Futuremark's flagship "overall" system wide testing benchmark.
Considerable performance gains were found from our 470MHz overclock. Scores at and over 6000 are exactly what we were expecting.
Futuremark's 3DMark06 is a means of testing a system's capability as a gaming machine.
Microsoft Flight Simulator X
Microsoft Flight Simulator X is part of a handful of games that are heavily CPU reliant, even at resolutions such as 1920x1200. With this in mind, it goes without saying that our Phenom II X4 965BE overclock resulted in considerable framerate increases.
Call of Duty 4
Crysis is the most GPU intensive game from our suite. To reduce the extent of the bottleneck caused by the GeForce 8800GT, the resolution was reduced to 1280x1024 and the testing mode set to Performance rather than Enthusiast.
Sadly for the rest of our games, the CPU Overclock had a minimal effect. The scores however were exactly as expected for a test system of this calibre. Let's move on to the conclusion.
