What makes a p5q better?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
Questions about the p5q series:

What makes them better? It seems to be the board series of choice for lga775. And also, whats the difference between the pro, pro-turbo, etc, models?

I've got a good gigabyte board thats overclocked the hell out of my chip, so i'd like to know what exactly is gonna be different on these boards.

With a Dual Core there is little difference between the P5Q Series and other Motherboards.

With a Quad Core, however, the P5Q Premium, P5Q Deluxe, and P5Q-E are all capable of greater FSB than most P45 Motherboards (except for a few select boards). This is due to advanced GTL Ref controls, which quad core CPUs require to reach higher FSB values.

The P5Q Pro and P5Q Pro Turbo lack the advanced GTL Reference controls, and thus are not as capable at reaching higher FSB (~475+ P95 Large FFT stable) with a Quad Core than the three P5Q models mentioned above.

Unless your going to be getting a Quad Core CPU, there may be little point to upgrading.
