Btw Corsair do not recommend you try to use 1066mhz dominator memory in the Asus striker...oh and it doesnt matter about the chipset its the memory controller what bottles it on the ASUS.
Now i wonder why there are no performance reports for the c5d corsair series........
You are a retard:
I've even circled "Asus Striker Extreme" and the 8500C5Ds in red.
As for 3DMark06, take a good look at the Hall of Fame
Yes, number 2 is an EVGA board, but 3 and 4 are Strikers. Now, look at the configurations. The EVGA FSB is at 299 MHz, while the Striker FSBs are at 370 MHz and 335 MHz. And now look at the CPU speeds. We're looking at CPU, RAM and GPU limitations, NOT motherboard limitations.
Edit: After looking at EVGA vs the first Striker, the scores are different by 30 points, which is completely insignificant in 3DMark scores, especially when both are approaching 24000 anyway. Not to mention that the GPU clock speeds are completely incorrect - the 8800's clocks sure as hell aren't 108/499. /Edit
Now go away, or I shall taunt you for a second time. n00b.
