Asus P5K review and benchmarking thread - Page 6

post #51 of 110
Thread Starter 
I will shoot pics of the BIOS menus in a bit--been very busy again today...

It has some adjustments that the P4P800SE lacks

What I find most encouraging is this board apparently runs cool--meaning that it modulates and dampers the Voltages. This is a good thing for me as I can be a little heavy handed while pushing for Max OC...

Right now the rig is Folding at 3.1ghz and on my DB-1/FuZion/PA 160 loop I see 39C under 100% load

I will do some more work on this in a bit--holiday weekend with the family so not much time for testing today.

I did run some Futurmarks and for sure the overclocked RAM makes higher marks.

Of course nothing astro with a single X1950pro--but my guess is that this particular board would outbench other boards with the same processor/RAM/HDD and GFX...

I have the same card running on my AA8XE (4007mhz stable) with 2 GB of Corsair XMX running at DDR2 667 and the P5K pulls almost 2000 more points...

Prolly not avery fair comparison as the AA8XE runs a 550 Pent

I'm amazed at how much you can squeeze out for the price.

The strong suit of this mobo seems to be voltage control and as far as I can tell the RAM handling is better than the 975X. But to be able to OC that stable without much of an overvolt (1.31 over 1.275--.035 over stock) makes for a long life and a cool run.

Not sure if it just these G Skill being so darn perfect or if the Memory Controller is making the RAM so stable at 1151. The rig will run SuperPi and Orthos with a massive OC to the RAM..that's pretty cool.

I always wondered if OCing the RAM really made much difference in performance--compared to an OCes CPU--on this mobo it really show in the bandwidth tests and even with the Futuremark benchmarks.

Did you notice that one of the BIOS versions for the P5K states that the FSB will reset if it exceeds 500?
