Audi's first ASUS board: P5K Deluxe (Pics Inside) - Page 2

post #11 of 25
I'm thinking of getting this same board...except the one without the WiFi...going to Wireless N soon on a PCI card....

Is there one, aside from the "Vanilla" that doesn't have WiFi? The regular P5K didn't seem too promising, though is probably damned good.

FAIR WARNING: To those who have native 1066 Memory, you must make it to the bios (F1 key) first to activate the 1067 memory option or you'll power cycle every other restart.

Apparently, although this board supports the memory NATIVELY? It doesn't right out of the box. I don't even know how I figured that out, but I can imagine spending at least a wasted hour on the web if I were to search for it.

Board is up and running, comparing the stock chipset cooling to the Enzotech.

Very nice, you using all 4 gigs. I am interested as to what you get 4 sticks running at stable so I can compare with my abitIP35 pro.

Good luck

Well Ze Good news is that I can hang out at 3.4 - 3.6ghz on this board with decent temps but still the same voltages as the Gigabyte board. My CPU, however, did around the same as that on the Gigabyte board.

I think with a little more playtime with the board, I can probably Boot at 3.9Ghz for a Validation or something like that. Otherwise, this is definitely a CPU deal and I won't be getting any better clocks out of it.

As far as the memory goes, I'm currently running 1100 5-5-5-15-2T on all four gigs 2.2v and trying to see if it'll pass SuperPi. Then moving on to try all four gigs at 1200.

I'm inclined to believe, even though I'm probably too newb to say this, that with an E6600 on par with Knitelife's week I could achieve similar results as he did on the Gigabyte board which happens to cost less money and offer similar benefits to the Asus P5K Deluxe board.

Oh, and Knitelife-- I didn't get TOO lost on the BIOS settings. They're not too foreign at all, and offer a few more options than the Gigabyte board to get you the best OC. By saying that I can probably hit 3.9Ghz, that's admittance enough. I know that with this CPU, even a 3.8 Validation on air was not possible. 3.7Ghz being the highest I could reach.

I'll probably hold onto the board a day or two more and then decide which one I'm sticking with.

I love this stuff!

Glad you are excited.

I was actually just as happy with the 'nilla P5K. I don't need the breakout or the WiFi and the OCability is apparently te same. It ran the Q up to 3.2 without any real hassle and I am thinking there is more there...possibly 3.5 stable on Aqua.

One thing that I found right away is to disable the enhanced transfer option in the Jumper Free menu...definitely screws the OC

I am steady at 1070 with DDR2 800--the memory controller is top notch.

Hey CD! Good to see ya 'round here!

I think the Vanilla P5k and the mid-range Gigabyte P35 Boards MIGHT be a sweet spot!

One thing that I can give immediately to this ASUS board ias the ability to keep my memory OC stable. I am quite sure that on the Gigabyte board I couldn't even see windows @ DDR2-1200 on these sticks. I tried it, it was no go beyond 1000. I'm in Windows right now about to run SuperPi again since the 1100 5-5-5-15 passed.

I think if your'e looking for the extra memory performance and stability when dealing with memory clocks, the Asus board is it.

Note: I went through and disabled a few options, left a few on Auto. One of those disabled is the one you said so I guess I'm doing this right! I'm learning!

=P

Also gotta give it to Asus on the Piping. I slapped on the Enzotech coolers without any thermal grease (thanks to the lap) and only knocked off 1c off the stock cooling; quite nice.
