During our numerous experiments I failed to get Intel Core i3-530 and 540 processors to work stably when the base clock was increased beyond 200 MHz, which limited the maximum overclocking for us.

Could this be due to QPI ceiling? Could you change the multi manually to see if it makes any difference?
Please, please, please do some oc testing with lynnfield! I want to know which one does better - p55 of h57.
Thanks in advance and keep up the good work.

Bah.. only 2xUSB3.0 ports? Why go quarter-a*sed? Should be all USB3.0.. USB2.0 is dead dead DEAD.. Long live massive speed and power increase!

USB 3.0 is only supported by NEC controller chip, each chip can only support 2 USB 3.0 ports. Price for adding this chip is close to 10$, as there are lil to no USB 3.0 devices there is no need for than 2 ports. They are just added for "future proof" PR stuff.

Without overclocking, when the CPU clock speed is close to nominal, boards can reach up to 215 MHz. I didn’t check anything beyond that point. But during overclocking I can’t achieve stability neither at 204 nor at 209 MHz. I tried both: Intel Core i3-540 and 530, lowered CPU and QPI multiplier, but all in vain.

Since Clarkdale overclocks on P55 exactly the same way as on H57 and H55, these chipsets have the same overclocking potential.

Thanks a lot! So I should stick to P55 for my lynnfield upgrade coming up? Or would you recommend H55/7?
p.s. D4E you rock! I wish all other reviewers respond to my questions. xbitlabs's reviews are the best on the net, but you lack in the comment section. I would love to see more people commenting on your reviews and your staff more involved in answering questions.

In our today’s review of the most extraordinary mainboard we are going to dwell not only on its features. We will also take a glance at solutions from other makers, reveal their peculiarities and discuss the existing tricks for successful overclocking of new processors.


This is barely English!

You should see my latest college text book if you want an example of barely english. And it's in it's 8th edition no less.
