Skulltrail and Asus send workstations overclocking bananas

From The Inquirer:

THE INQUIRER first told you about the expansion of PC overclocking into the previously untouchable workstation-grade dual-socket CPU arena last year. Intel's Skulltrail D5400XS was, of course, the main focus, however another main Intel mobo player, Asus, had its entry with a different feature set - the Z7S WS - which you also heard about here before anywhere else.

Both boards had a difficult birth. Skulltrail, even in its liquid-cooled flavours, couldn't push the dual FSB or 4-channel DDR2 FB-DIMM memory clocks much beyond the default FSB1600 / FBD-800, while the Z7S WS couldn't change memory latencies despite higher FSBs, on top of some early benchmark performance issues.
