Asus P5E3 Deluxe WiFi-AP @n Socket 775 Motherboard
The I/O panel on the Asus P5E3 is fairly comprehensive as well as modern. Featuring:
* 1 x PS/2 keyboard connector
* 1 x SP/DIF Optical digital audio output
* 1 x SP/DIF Coaxial digital output
* 2 x e-SATA ports
* 1 x Firewire ports
* 6 x USB ports
* 2 x RJ45 LAN Port
* 8 channel analogue sound output
* 2 x WiFi aerials via add-in WiFI-AP @n card
The P5E3's BIOS is based around the Phoenix BIOS and as usual, Asus have managed to squeeze more options in there than you can shake a stick at. I personally prefer the layout of the Award BIOS, but the BIOS with the P5E3 is hard to find fault with.
|CPU Multiplier||x6 upwards|
|FSB Frequency||200-800mhz (1mhz steps)|
|PCI-E Frequency||100-150mhz (1mhz steps)|
Plenty to adjust there then.
|CPU Voltage||1.1v-1.70v (0.00625v steps)|
|FSB Termination Voltage||1.20v-1.5v (0.02v steps)|
|Northbridge Voltage||1.25v-1.91v (0.02v steps)|
|DRAM Voltage||1.50-2.78v (0.02v steps)|
|Southbridge Voltage||1.050v-1.20vv (0.15v steps)|
|PLL Voltage||1.05-2.78v (0.02v steps)|
All of the controls change from green to orange to red as you go higher and there's even a warning when you put the NB voltage at the highest to get better cooling!
All in all Asus have provided an incredibly comprehensive BIOS that doesn't fail to impress, especially considering this is a board aimed at "lifestyle" users, rather than gamers or overclockers necessarily.
