Overclocking was performed through the BIOS, as all good 24/7 overclocking should be done. The P5B-E has excellent overclocking options in a very good solid BIOS so I was expecting good things!
Low Voltage Overclocking
I set an upper limit of 1.325v for the CPU and clocked the CPU as high as I could whilst maintaining a 3 hour Orthos (dual prime95) stable overclock.
Overclocking - Highest Possible Stable on Air
For this test I stopped when I got concerned that the temperature rose too high. This overclock was performed on air using a Scythe Infinity. I stopped when the CPU started getting around 65-70°C. For this overclock I had to use 1.65v which is not always to be recommended for those who are faint of heart!
Once again the P5B-E plus displayed some strange results when overclocking. The highest FSB I achieved with the board was stable in a windows environment, but the board would not boot 1Mhz over 500FSB.
