Overclocking Vitamins: EVGA 680i SLI & QX6850

After taking my doctor’s prescribed overclocking vitamins, it was time to do some overclocking on the EVGA nForce 680i SLI Motherboard with the Extreme Edition QX6850 Processor. The effect was tremendous, 500MHz FSB with Quad Core and over 5GHz Stable on 3D Mark 06. 25.7K 3D Mark 06 score!

It was a peaceful Sunday afternoon, I was just chilling out and having a
couple of vitamins:

After having some vitamins, I felt strong, so I put my Intel QX6850 Extreme
Edition on the EVGA nForce 680i SLI Motherboard, and cooled it with
refrigeration Cascade.

First I tested FSB with the Kentsfield Quad Core Processor.

The vitamins was superb, my Kentsfield now scaled up to a
shocking 500MHz FSB!!

To stabilize things, and not to have an overdose of vitamins,
I reclined to 475MHz FSB:

Well I want to do high MHz next I thought, and still have a
spanking 400+MHz FSB. So drop a bit of FSB and up the multiplier:

Sweet deal, just 1.55v to give me a stable 4867MHz Quad
Core stable, with the Cascade, riding a nice 442MHz FSB.
