After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Benchmarks – Overclocked

    As with all of our reviews we pit the default speed system against the overclocked one in a head to head byte match. The results of this are below.

    Overclocking Conclusion
    It should be noted that the Black Edition processors offer up a variety of benefits in the realm of performance and overclocking.  Not only do you get a 100Mhz boost over the standard edition but you get the added bonus of a fully unlocked multiplier.  Under the normal run of things you are limited to HTT increases which in effect raises the buss speed and overclocks the processor.  When you reach a certain point you have to start dropping the multiplier to continue the overclock.  This is great for increasing memory throughput but puts a huge strain on the chipset.  By adjusting the multiplier you can freely increase processor speed while maintaining the memory and system clocks.  Its basically like dropping in a faster processor.

    Of course your mileage can and will likely vary
