Perfect timing for the review, as I am just considering buying one of these boards - makes the decision easier

Looks like the only real advantage would be with C2Ds, quads do not really go much higher. I think if a person is buying a new board sure get the P45, however I see no real gain to upgrading from what I already have...

Does anyone know what the OC settings where on this test? I just ordered a virtually identical system and would be interested in some baselines. Don't want to go overly crazy but I believe 3.6ghz should be realistic.

Start off with the settings on auto. Except vcore , vdimm and set your memory timings manually will be a good start. From there you will need to tweak for your setup as each is different.
