MSI Big Bang-XPower II Mainboard Review. Page 7

Extremely large size of this mainboard makes it incompatible with many system cases out there. However, it doesn’t really matter, because it is not intended for everyday work, but rather for extreme overclocking experiments and setting overclocking records, and in this case standard dimensions, nominal modes and power-saving technologies aren’t necessary.

Unfortunately, we do not see the same close results in the overclocked mode because all mainboards overclocked the processor differently. The following table sums up our overclocking results:
A 100 MHZ difference in resulting processor frequency produces about 2% performance difference. So, 6.2-6.3% performance difference between Asus Rampage IV Formula and MSI Big Bang-XPower II is quite normal, although a lot depends on the test application, of course. The difference is greater in Adobe Photoshop CS5 and 7-Zip 9.20, but there is hardly any performance difference in gaming applications, where not only CPU, but also the graphics card contribute to the overall performance.
