post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have this Mobo and overclocking their CPU? I currently have a Intel 3.4 2m cache no water cooling yet, I am using the stock Intel fan.

Tell me all what are the good and bad points with this Mobo.

See ya and big ups!!!

Great board, I love my Premium, but am upgrading to the E anyway.

The only bad side is it's very particular about optical drives and PATA hard drives. This should be mentioned by ASUS and retailer's but isn't, so you can run into troubles if you don't have a SATA hard drive


ASUS makes the best boards IMHO, and the P5WD2 series is the top of their line right now.

It's a really good board. Be happy

I too would like some OC hints for it.

Hey all thanks for the props. So far I enabled the AI NOS, but as soon as I get a better CPU cooler I'll play around with some of the other settings. thinking of the CoolerMaster Hyper L3.

Good Times all.

first of all, turn off the auto OC. It's not efficient and ups the vcore way more than needed.
