Overclocking Results

GIGABYTE EasyTuner 6

Amazingly enough, the EasyTuner 6 applet resulted in a higher stable overclock than via manual means. After clicking the Level 3 button from within the Tuner tab and a reboot, the system booted into Windows at a 4.58GHz CPU speed and a 2080MHz memory speed with a 104MHz base clock. This configuration remained stable for over 14 hrs while running a combination of LinX and FurMark over with LinX running for 500 loops with Memory set to All and FurMark running at 1280×1024 resolution and 2x MSAA in stress test mode.

Manual Overclocking

Using manual settings in the GIGABYTE UEFI BIOS via the M.I.T. page, I was able stabilize the system at a 103MHz base clock with a 4.4GHz CPU speed and memory running at a fast 2200MHz clip. System stability was tested over a 10 hour period with LinX running for 500 loops with Memory set to All and FurMark running at 1280×1024 resolution and 2x MSAA in stress test mode.
