Hey Mike, I just quickly browsed through the thread, so I'm not sure if it has been mentioned before, but maybe isolating a platform on which you can do your measurements with bungee cords might help.

Those having this motherboard should check out the F3 Bios. Gigabyte added a 2.66 multiplier for 800 fsb processors.
It's a great addition for my E2140. I can run a lot higher clocks now.
I know we're at SilentPCR but if you can combine it with a little bit of overclocking it's even nicer.
