- First and foremost, the P5W is Crossfire ready and some people also got SLI to work on it by hacked drivers, meanwhile, it the P5B does not. So this depends if you are going to go Crossfire or SLI now or in the future.
- The P5W has an EZ-Backup abilities for RAIDing, all you have to do is plug the cables in and you're set while in other mobos like the P5B, you'll have to go through the traditional way of using a floppy to set up a RAID.
- Then there is the chipset differences between the two. P5W has a P975X North Bridge and ICH7R South Bridge. The P5B has a P765X North Bridge and ICH8R South Bridge. I don't know too much about this so I won't go into it.
Both boards are great for overclocking but just a few different things. What about the P5W that is bothering you?
