Audi's first ASUS board: P5K Deluxe (Pics Inside) - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Good to see it worked out for you Audi. I do really like the board. If there was one thing I would change, it would be to give my back my PS2 mouse port instead of the extra USBs. It sure makes it a pain to use with a KVM.

The one thing I still have questions on is the stability of the memory controller on the Gigabyte. That has been about the only complaint I have seen so far on it.

The complaint isn't far off at all. I am having no issues with my four gig sticks on this board, and really had a hard time doing any decent overclocking On the Gigabyte board. I mean, I was able to run 1066 @ 2.0v, passed SuperPi... but I guess when it comes to digging the best you can out of your hardware, and Memory being hardware, the Gigabyte board's limiting in that respect.

I don't know when the Hardware revision will hit, but, hopefully that'll make the P35 Gigabyte boards more worthwhile than not.

I would DEFINITELY take back my PS/2 port, man. Six USB'S! That's just overkill and I have plenty of USB devices to USE them all. I disconnected my add|Logix KVM for the time being.

It's good to know that you don't have to go Deluxe to get the best performance. There's a host of upgrades between the Vanilla and the Deluxe that some might want, some might not (WiFi?), but I think the performance would be the same.

I think I'm going to travel back to Gigabyte world. Though that is NOT to say that the P5k is not a good board. I still think it's actually BETTER than the Gigabyte board, and definitely LOOKS more mature. Gigabyte might just be my cup-of-tea.

I highly recommend the P5K-Deluxe if you have the money and would like the neato options. If you don't, there's the P5K "Vanilla" and Gigabyte has some great options available for Intel's latest n'greatest chipset.

The memory issues with that board sound like they can be resolved with Bios updates rather than actual hardware revisions. That would be nice for all those that have the board already.

Happy you liked the P5K-Deluxe, and if you decide to stick with Gigabyte, I know someone that probably would not mind adding another Asus board to his collection.

i'm glad you enjoyed your P5K deluxe Audi, although with what you have said i am now thinking on just getting the P5K vanilla, wi-fi don't need that and if performance and stability are on par, but you being a gigabyte man and all, do you recommend the DS3P or DS3R??

It sounds like that ASUS did pretty good for you though.

The Asus board is HONESTLY the better board in terms of performance, options, and all the good stuff. Even the WiFi is KINDA cool to have, y'know? Where it falls behind might be the pricing. Say for 40.00 less? It becomes the no brainer board (even though I am still going back to the P35 DS3P). But, then, the Vanilla would have no place so it's necessary.

Definitely a great board and glad I got to try it out first hand!
