Board seems to like 112. Tested with 3 bloomfields to 248 @ 112, high limit seems like 120 hard drive dependant, needed for 250+ if you are booting these speeds like I am.

True but that is common for 920's at an unstable QPI or uncore........

I can do same on an asus with a clarkdale and have........

It's up to the overclocker if he chooses to submit a bugged result.

Its not bug with wrong BCLK only in Cpuz, but this BCLK fluctuation is REAL! Look ... BCLK was 235 x 21! ! !

Real screenshot:




Bugged screenshot:



Result is higher, BCLK has to be a 235! but is higher for real ... not only in Cpuz ...

Something is wrong with that OC controller on board ... this CPU under air, cannot to reach 262 BCLK and 5,2 GHz

Doubt the speed is actually higher, just because Aida thinks it higher and scores better doesn't mean its actual.

We have seen similar trends with other benches. maxmem for instance can be exploited by raising AMD's NB multi in windows.........but the reality is it actually can not be raised. However the benchmark still reflects higher scores becasue it thinks the clocks are higher.

My guess is certain benches can be impacted and certian ones can't.
