  • The masterwork of 965 motherboard - ASUS P5B Deluxe review

    965 chipsets, the medium-class chipsets of Intel motherboard, have been the
    most admitted by the DIY market for more than five months.
    I have tested MSI P965 Platinum and Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3. Although a bit
    late, Iíd like to share the performance test of ASUS P5B Deluxe.

    Letís take a look on the motherboard.



    Down-left corner
    In series of P5B, only Deluxe use two PCI-E
    There are there traditional PCI slots and a SATA slots on the left side.

    Slots for memory and the place of 24pin power


    Use 8-phase PWM power design


    IO part
    Dual network and an eSATA-for external SATA products

      Special parts
      You can choose DDRII 1066 under the default setting of FSB 266Mhz
      And it is practical


      Voltage setting for memory from 1.80 to 2.45V


      Voltage setting for CPU up to 1.7000V

        The page for DRAM adjusting


        The page of temperature and voltage monitoring


        Test environment
        CPU:INTEL Core 2 Extreme X6800
        MB: ASUS P5B Deluxe
        DRAM:CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF
        /Patriot DDRII 1000 512MBX2
        VGA:ELSA GLADIAC 790GS 256B3 2DT

        POWER:Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply
        Cooler:TT Sonic Tower
        FSB of processor
        E6300 could be up to about 470 MHz, and X6800 was stable at 497 MHz


        Working on FSB 266 MHz, 1:2=>DDRII 1066 CL4 4-3-9

          DDRII 1066 CL4 4-3-9 2.1V stable


          Working on FSB 400 MHz, 2:3=>DDRII 1200 CL4 4-4-9 2.45V
          Super PI 1M and memory bandwidth on the test of EVEREST


          ASUS P5B Deluxe couldnít reach the FSB 500~550 MHz from some tests on
          the internet, but I could understand because overclocking depended on both
          CPU and Motherboard. Actually, the motherboard is still good by having this
          level of FSB.

          On the other hand, it could easily reach up to DDRII 1100~1200 on memory
          testing which was hard for 975X MB and other 965 MB.

          P5B Deluxe is good at overclocking, materials it used, and functionality.
          Although the price is slightly high, P5B Deluxe is still a wonderful choice for
          customers who need these functions and have enough budget.
