P5K Deluxe + Q6600 @ 4395.59 MHz

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
New toys arrived today from NEWEGG!!

I have been a fan of the P5B deluxes with the Q6600. I have 5 of the combo at the moment and they have served me well. I have plans with the July Q6600 price drop to buy 4 more for my folding farm, and thought I might give the new P35 chipset a try before I made any motherboard choices for next month.

Test build specs:
CPU: Intel Q6600 week L645G (This is a newer week than my other quads so hope it fairs as well)
RAM: GSkill HZs DDR2-1000 PC28000 CL4-4-4-5 2.2~2.4volts (Sure seems high compared to the 800mhz HZs)
MOBO: Asus P5K Deluxe WiFi P35 chipset
VID: Not sure yet as this will be a folding rig, but will likely start with the ATI 1950XT for overclocking tests.
Cooling: Going to start with an TR Ultra 120 Extreme + 2 X Silverstone FM121 mounted. If I feel heat is holding me back and I have a lot of OC headroom left I will move it to the Phase Unit.

Few pics to start out.

Motherboard/CPU/RAM


First thing I notice is they did not have that stupid metal sticker covering the NB heatsink like they do on the P5B Deluxe. I would usually have to pull it off for better air flow or to mount a mini NB fan.


I purchased 4 of the TR Ultra 120 Extremes and 8 fo the Silverstone FM121. I have to swap out of few of my Tuniq Towers so I got extras. (Will explain in another thread, not due to performance, but configuration issues with some mods related to the square vs rectangular base)


More photos and some results as I get things put together and start testing.

Installing XP at the moment. I must say I love the Intel Quad cores and realy have high hopes for this board. While I am installing software I came across this info in one review. It has me just itching to get this thing loaded and start OCing.

Overclocking headroom appears to be absolutely massive as well.

Most P965 or 680i boards struggle to remain stable with Kentsfield processors if the FSB is running at over 400MHz but in our testing with a Core 2 Quad Q6600, the ASUS reached a heady 430MHz (1720MHz once the QDR is taken into account) without increasing any of the voltages on the northbridge or front-side bus itself.
In fact our very own forum users are already reporting hitting 480MHz FSB using a Core 2 Quad, a speed that you'd only hope to achieve with other boards if using a Core 2 Duo.

Clearly, the P35 gives the P5K Deluxe a lot of headroom for overclocking the front-side bus. In fact, for many, the CPU or memory they use could end up becoming the limiting factor.
I hope the real thing live up to this type of hype with the Quad Core!!!

I shouldn't be reading this... I really shouldn't. Keep us posted. If it is that good I might pick one up.

It is very late and I am heading to bed. A few things I have figured out so far. This board is just awsome with the Kentsfield Chip. While working on it I have been researching quite a bit and everyone is saying that for the dual cores, this may be a small step up from the 965 chipset, but for the Quads, it is a giant leap.

So far I have been able to hit OCs at stock that were not possible with my P5B Deluxes + Kentsfields on Air without cooking your chip. I have for seen enough that tomorrow I will be putting this on the phase unit to realy see what it can do. Until I get my water setup, the only other option is my air cooling. I can tell you that this setup will handle whatever you can throw at it as long as you can handle the heat it throws at you.

There are a lot of settings on this board and I am still trying to figure out what some of them do and how they affect your overclock. The bios is still very young and info on the web is just starting to come out with what setting influence stability and overclockability.

I will leave you with one screenshot that was not even possible for me to do with my P5B Deluxe even on the phase unit.

500mhz FSB on a Quad Core on Air!!!!! Will see what the phase will do tomorrow with some benches as well.

I hope my 680i will do well with a Quad i was considering getting one, there is a new Bios available for the P5N32-E SLI 680i and according to some it has fixed the FSB issues with Quad Cores. Although i doubt 500FSB is attainable.

Nice!

Congrats.. FYI, might want to keep it under 500FSB as there's a strap change at 500FSB http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...ed-500fsb.html
