P5B-E...How far can we take it?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Since I have the "bastard stepchild" of ASUS motherboards, I started wondering what the best stable OC has been on the board. Anandtech got 525 X6 from an E6300: http://www.anandtech.com/printarticle.aspx?i=2851

We know our 2.1 vdimm maximum limits us but how much? Post your P5B-E overclocks here, please.

I believe that it maxes out at 533, unless a volt mod is done.

The reason why Anand got that high is because his board is not retail. Reviewers get cherry picked hardware.

I know that the V1.01G has the highest Vdimm of 2.1v but the V1.02G goes as high as 2.40v.

You probably have the V1.01G, because you're still on C1 P965 and the C2 P965 is the newer V1.02G.

Yeah I don't know why I didn't remember the existence of the fabled 1.02G. But no one actually has one, from what I gather.

Not hard to get Rev 1.02G or even 1.03G. All you have to do is go to a retail store that sells motherboard and buy one P5b-E and if you didn't get the 1.02g then return it and test your luck again and again. Simple, right?

Heck, i got my P5B Rev 1.03G by making up an excuse and got a newer revision! When i first had it the revision was 1.01G and 28 days later i RMA it and got the Rev 1.03 with a few solid capacitors along with it.

Can someone point me to a site where i can find out what my revision mean or what has changed in the 1.03G?

Well the article says they used a 1.01g so at least I can dream.

Yes, they use a 1.01G but you have to remember that they did not go to newegg.com and order theirs........ASUS (probably) themselves delivered this board to Anand and the board is cherry picked, just like ES CPUs.

Of course, those thing will over-clock a lot higher, also, just like the Dominator CAS 4 DDR2 1150. It'd be nice to get a hold of these boards but I think manufacturers ask for these things back. Unlike Intel which it seems don't care about where their CPUs end up.

That makes sense: They want Anand to write a good review, right?
