NOTE: We have discovered that Gigabyte’s F2 BIOS revision, used for Cinebench and POVRay, did NOT have an MCE option, but instead auto-enabled MCE. Fortunately, our gaming tests were conducted with F4 & F5a, and are therefore unaffected (MCE off). The Cinebench charts have been corrected in the article (linked below), as we discovered the Gigabyte F2 BIOS issue just recently.
