Shuttle SB95P V2 XPC ReviewFormer staff writer - May 25, 2005
Unfortunately, I did not have a lot of time to complete this review and because of the time constraints, I was not able to spend a lot of time overclocking the system. However, I was able to bump the FSB up to 225MHz making the 3.4GHz oced to 3.82GHz and that's even with the cheap Value Select memory that I used. I didn't touch any of the voltage options either, I probably could of got more out of it if I had tried.
As I mentioned earlier in the BIOS, the voltage settings are a bit limited, but again; it should be enough to get at decent overclock with. Even I got a decent overclock, without even touching the voltages. Needless to say, with the limited amount of time I spent overclocking the system, I'm very pleased - it did a much better job that our previous Shuttle box.
Below are a few benchmarks comparing the stock results and the overclocked results.
PCMark04 is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead of including very large applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark04 to be a smaller installation as well as to report very accurate results. As far as possible, PCMark04 uses public domain applications whose source code can be freely examined by any user.
Sandra 2005 developed by SiSoftware, is a premier application benchmarking tool. Sandra allows you to test just about every aspect of your computer to obtain comparative results. We'll be using Sandra 2005 to test CPU and memory bandwidth.
