Asus P5N-T Deluxe 780i Motherboard
IO and BIOS
The I/O panel on the P5N-T has a good range of outputs and caters for modern enthusiasts.
* PS/2 keyboard connector
* PS/2 mouse connector
* 1 x SP/DIF Optical digital audio output
* 1 x SP/DIF Coaxial digital output
* 1 x e-SATA ports
* 1 x Firewire ports
* 4 x USB ports
* 1 x RJ45 LAN Port
* 8 channel analogue sound output
Not a bad selection, although again it's just not quite as good as the P5E3 Deluxe's outputs.
As is usual with Asus, the P5N-T Deluxe features a Phoenix BIOS. This is a little changed from the usual Intel Phoenix BIOS but everything you need is basically there ready to go. The BIOS is fairly simple to use and the board can be set up with minimal fuss, changing very little.
However, we're not interested in minimal setup, so let's take a look at what you can tweak.
|CPU Multiplier||x6 - x50|
|LTD Frequency||1x - 8x|
|FSB Frequency||200-800mhz (Keyable - 1mhz steps)|
|PCI-E Frequency||100-150mhz (1mhz steps)|
|RAM Frequency||400-2600 (Keyable - 1mhz steps)|
Asus offer a good range of adjustments with FSB, Multi and RAM options being very full and really nothing to complain about at all here.
|CPU Voltage||0.8v-1.7v (0.0500v steps)|
|Memory Voltage||1.850v-3.11v (0.02v steps)|
|NB BRO4 CHIP Voltage||1.2v-1.35v|
|Northbridge Voltage||1.20v-3.00v (0.02v steps)|
|Southbridge Voltage||1.55-1.85v (0.05v steps)|
|1.2v HT Voltage||1.20v-2.0v (0.02v steps)|
|CPU VTT Voltage||1.2v-1.55v (0.5 steps)|
|GTLVREF||0.569x - 0.684x|
A good array of voltage options gives the P5N-T a nice looking set of BIOS adjustments that are far beyond what most overclockers will be willing to put into their components. However, the options are there so Asus can be comended for that.
