Product Acquired: Asus


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.

3400MHz is pretty nice for a low-volts OC and matches the Abit AW9D max.

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!

Again a nice overclock from the Asus board at high volts. I feel I could have gone higher but for the cooler. Funnily enough the highest I could get the board stable on air turned out to be the highest I could get the board into windows at all.


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.

So there you go, some great overclocking results to be had from the Asus P5B-E plus.

Good board but I'm glad I didn't purchase it. 2.1v vDimm would have made me sell it the minute I booted it up.

Anyway, extremely thorough review Kemp. Looks great!Quote
