Which set up is best for me? Asus P5B Deluxe or P5WDH Deluxe? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
It depends where your priorities are, Brook.

If you just want clock for clock performance, the commando probably wont offer much more.

But if you are looking for fancy addons (like lights and diagnostic hardware tools) and the like, it could probably be a nice addition. Frankly, I would probably pay an extra 80-100 bucks for a more developed board, and some nice gimmicky features, but not everyone is the same. Just try and lay out what you really want the board for, what features you want, and go from there. If lights and show aren't your bag, just drop it on the P5B Dlx. Also note, though, that the P5B may drop in price after the Commando release, so if you are strapped for cash, it may be wise to wait for just that.

Hi Killnine, tbh I'm not really an extreme overclocker, nor am I into the lights and other gimmicks. I guess I am more interested in the best performance without any physical modding, and future upgradeability... if the P5B and the Commando are as future proof as each other then I prob won't need the commando, unless it can overclock much better without modding and more easily.

You're prob right about the P5B dlx comming down in price, and I should wait and see how it all pans out really. Don't really want to wait, but will prolly kick myself if I don't.

The ASUS Commando is a re-branded P5B with some stupid lights and a new pricetag. It is not worth the price, and your overclock with it will not be any better or any worse than the P5B.

ah right... prob worth sticking with the P5B then... and maybe waiting for it to drop in price (if that will happen that is!)..

....the P5B vanilla is limited in voltadjustment in bios,but as people say,its a desent overclocker.

But if you go for the P5B DLX or the P5B E Plus,then things starts to happend,better bios and better components on pcb,better stock overclock also....500fsb+ is not unusual on this......
...hm,kinda hard to deside...lol....

Yep it would be the P5B Deluxe I would go for :-)

The only reason I would prob consider the commando if it has better lifespan potential, ie, will it be better for the latest cpus in the future?

I plan on getting the 6300 now and maybe next year upgrade cpu and more memory... so want the MB to be one that lasts :-)

Are any new chipsets planned for release this year? I don't mind waiting :-)

The P965 will work with quad core.

Intel does have a new Chipset in planning. (Bearlake) Planned for release in Q3 07. So if you are willing to wait 9-10 months....

here is a little info on it:

Quote:
Yesterday associates transferred in the accessible form the basic functional news, provided for chipset family bearlake:
  • Bearlake- X - > Support processors with four core, DDR 3-1333, 2 slots PCI Of express x16, PCI express 2.0, announcement in the third quarter of 2007;
  • Bearlake- P - > DDR 3-1066/ DDR 2-800, 1333 MHz bus, announcement in the second quarter of 2007;
  • Bearlake- G - > DDR 3-1066/ DDR 2-800, 1333 MHz bus, Intel clear video technology, DirectX 9.0c, announcement in the second quarter of 2007;
  • Bearlake-G+ - > DDR 3-1066/ DDR 2-800, 1333 MHz bus, Intel clear video technology, DirectX 10, HDCP, announcement in the third quarter of 2007;
  • Bearlake- Q - > DDR 2-800, 1333 MHz bus, Intel AMT2, VT- d, announcement in the second quarter of 2007;
  • Bearlake-QF - > DDR 2-800, 1066 MHz bus, announcement in the second quarter of 2007.
All chipset of series bearlake will work paired with the south bridges of family ICH9. On the base functionality of these south bridges we don't known a lot , but there is information about the possibility of appearance of support SATA-600 and support disappearance for the old good PCI. However, thus far this only assumptions, and don't have any official statement.
From the functional possibilities description of the northern bridges it is possible to make following conclusions. First, support to memory type DDR-2 on chipset intel should not exced the DDR 2-800. Overclocker modules DDR-2 with the higher frequencies will not be supported by motherboard producers, but only in the overclocking regime . For mass chipset bearlake will be in the second place, provided support to the DDR 3-1066, whereas the Bearlake- X will be able to get support of DDR 3-1333. By the way, it will be the limit, since compatability with DDR-2 for this chipset is not provided.
Finally, all chipset intel in 2007 will obtain the support of processors with 1333 MHz bus. Judging by everything, such processors will appear in the table segment in the second or third quarters. The support of 1333 MHz bus from the side of chipset promises to improve the overclocking potential using processors with lower bus frequency . We will not forget, that in 2007 will appear the carriers of architecture conroe with 800 MHz , and even 533 MHz bus. In motherboard on the base of chipset bearlake such processors will overclock amazingly.
Chipset Bearlake-QF will be limited to the support of 1066 MHz bus and memory of type DDR 2-800. Possibly, board on its basis will preserve low cost, and will ensure the progressive functionality of south bridge and high overclocking potential. This proposal can draw economical users
