Asus P5Q - Page 2

post #11 of 40
and which ASUS P45 is the best (overclocking/crossfire capable/quality/stability)?

EDIT: in the case that you guys vote the P5Q-E, I just looked and it just showed up on newegg...otherwise, I would probably be leaning towards the P5Q-Pro

There is no physical difference between the Pro and E models, the E has a few extra features like energy saving stuff and BS like that.
post #14 of 40
what about other features, does it OC better than the Pro?

You can go to Asus's website and it will tell you all of the major differences. Overclocking wise there shouldn't be a difference.

physically, the P5Q-E has better nb/sb heatsinks though...possibly allowing for higher voltages and a more stable OC, right?

That is absolutely true, especially taking into account the fact that the P45 NB puts out a lot more heat than the P35/X38.

Are you sure Grim? I thought that the 45nm chipset runs quite cooler (several reviews noted that the heat sinks were cool to the touch on stock and mild overclocks), whereas the NB's on the p35's can get quite toasty (or so i've heard). Still waiting for some more p45 reviews to start showing up, the crossfire is looking a lot more attractive now that the 4850's are budget ownage.

There are no 45nm chipsets. The P35, 975X, 965P, X38, and X48 are all made on the 90nm process. The P45 is built on the 65nm process but still puts off about 10C more heat on average. I don't advise CF with the P45 if you're playing on resolutions larger than 1920x1200, the PCI-E lanes will bottleneck.

Though I greatly respect your word Grimm, it was my understanding that with PCI-E 2.0, it will not bottleneck, at least not noticeably...
