AW9D-Max to an Asus P5K-Deluxe... Amazing

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I recently sold my 975x AW9D-Max to purchase a P35 Asus P5K-Deluxe. I've got to say, it's made an enormous difference.

Don't get me wrong the Abit was a great board; easy to overclock. But it topped out far too early and required a lot of doing to get to it's top speed. I pushed my e6300, known to OC almost 100% (It holds the #3 spot on top Intel overclocks), to 2.8 Ghz max. To do this I had to up vcore and northbridge voltages a whole bunch.

Now, with this P35 I'm currently sitting at a cool 3.15 Ghz with absolutely no voltage modifications whatsoever. I change the FSB, and everything works out fine. Now I am finally seeing what this chip can do, and I must say, the P5K-Deluxe was worth every penny, all 23,500 of them

Going to be doing the same.......Ditch my AW9D-MAX for an Abit IP-35 pro I see there OCing like monsters,My e6400 would hit 3.2 on my old P5B-deluxe *Had to many problems with the asus board*Went with the abit board but you gotta over volt it to get it run high overclocks and is also limited with FSB.Abits board doesnt look bad for the price either

Hmm..this could possibly be why it takes 1.45v to get to 3ghz on my e6600.

SLI is worth it when:
1-You have a 30" LCD Display minimum

And the most important part

2-When you can overclock the C2D CPU sky-high which you can't do with an SLI board and therefore You'll have to pick a high-end C2D in order to have a decen (24/7) OC to keep up with the SLI system.

Otherwise SLI is just a big waste of cash. One high-end card should be plenty enough and the rest? Pocket that money and get some extra cheese on your tacos at Taco Bell.

I'm so tempted to be a P5K-Deluxe myself.........

You've got a point, this is why I'm having second thoughts about getting the P5N32-E on my next build. I only want the rig for pro gaming and be future proof.

My rationale with SLI is like this, down the road, when games get more demanding, instead of getting a brand new card and spend a fortune, I'd get the same card and SLI (which by that time, wont be as expensive). Now is this rationale correct? If yes, then I might stick with the SLI board, if not, then looks like my options just expanded.

Yeah but... I think it's better to buy new architecture generally. When new cards come out and the 8800 is "old school" I know I'm not going to want to buy the older version.

I would prefer to get rid of the older card and get something better that might be = to or better than the card you already have.

I don't like the idea of buying older stuff. The only way I would SLI is if I had the money for both cards at once or I had a 30" like Nasgul said.
