Great board, I've played with the Deluxe, Pro and E series, I own the Deluxe. I've used it up to 500FSB for 24/7 clocks on an e8600 at 4.5ghz, e8500 @ 4.0ghz, and now am currently running 400FSB with a q6600 @ 3.6ghz. I'm using the 1702 Asus official bios, not a modded bios as I found no benefits in my applications to ever heed any extra performance, stability or oc-ability from them, just my experience though. Very easy to find stability and good clocks on these boards, I like the 2 bios chips for sure, and have had a hard crash where the backup actually saved my a$$, plus it was cool to see it in action. Though it only uses the 0506 bios, so I had to reflash to 1201 or whatever was back when that happened. Other then that, this board's been running solid.

You not on the 2000 bios?

Asus finally fixed the CPU diode problems in 1805, so I can finally turn PWM fan control back on now! :D

Would you like to join Kursah?

Sure sign me up. Lol I haven't checked for a newer bios than 1702 for about 2 months now...hell I didn't even need to update from the 1306 I was running beyond that (the 1402's sucked for high fsb stability for me).

What CPU diode problems were you having? I'm kind of interested in that...really I haven't noticed any issues, but maybe there's an issue I didn't notice! :D

I've got the P5Q-E! :) I love this baby, runs crazy high FSB and is an overclocker's dream.

I've got a 9450 at 400 FSB for my 24/7 overclock, on stock voltages. I can run some benchies or post screen shots of it as high as 3.8 at 1.45V.

Any specific requirements for membership(other than ownership)? Maybe a couple of challenges? Best FSB maybe?

The main CPU temp (not the core temps), would randomly jump up about 20*C, for no apparent reason, I bugged Asus for ages, and in the end they just said it was now with the engineers and they were working on it. There must have been have a dozen bios updates since then, and I have tried them all, and they all do the same thing, but with 1805 it seems to be fixed! :D
It meant that cus my cpu fan speed was controlled by the mobo (to quieten it up when idle), if the temp decided to randomly increase, all the fans would spin up too!

Since then I have invested in fans that sound fine on 100%, and have modded some cabling to allow me to switch them off if I leave the PC on overnight.
And I was running the CPU fan off a Zalman fanmate, now though, I will get it set back up as a proper PWM fan again! :)

As for BIOSes, I thought it might be useful to list all the current BIOS versions, in the reserved slot, and any other info about each board.

No challenges, that would be unfair to people who dont OC, lol. Be good to see some high clocks and FSB's tho, got a section in the first post for it! :D

Ahh gotcha, hell I rarely use the PWM functions for CPU fans anymore...reason being is the coolers I've used the AC F7P and Xig S1283 were damn quiet or very tolerable at 100%, leading no reason to mess with it. Though now I'm using the Scythe Ultra Kaze 3k fan on my Xig, I hooked that up to a spare Zalman FanMate 2 I had lying around, run it about 1.8k atm, usually around 2.1k, I hook up the yellow lead to the CPU fan header just to read rpm's anymore.

I will check out the newer bioses though, see what happens and changes.

In a state of flux...
P5Q Pro here.....500fsb 24/7, 530fsb for benchies and 550fsb for max clock runs all done with very little tweaking. :rockout:

It's a great board, shame my P45 DFI DK didnt live up to expectations, error code 88 killed my dreams with that board. :banghead:

Added the BIOS version into members list,

And made it so you can download you latest Bios from the table in post 2! :D

table 2 is very good.

Just finished it, you should see the amount of VBB code thats gone into it! :eek:

Hopefully it will help everyone tho.

If anyone thinks of anymore stuff they'd like added/changed to the first two posts, let me know.


I hope everyone is ready to help me tighten down my OC tomorrow.

I have so far got:

Q6600 @ 3.6GHz, 400 x 9, 1.4625v, Load Line Calibration Enabled
DDR2 1000 Mhz, 5-5-5-15, 2.1v, All Precharge to Activate: 4, TRFC: 45, Performance Level: 7
Everything else is on Auto.

But I wanted to get tighter timings and lower voltages if possible, oh and try and get some stuff off auto if needed.

Do you really need such high voltage for 3.6? Surely with a VID of 1.3 you should get that with 1.4V or so?

It needs 1.35v for 3.2GHz stable (tho I never actually tried lower)

And the only way I could get it stable was 1.4625v, 1.45v failed in OCCT.

Thats why I'm hoping with a little bit of help, adjusting some other voltages and frequencies, gtlrefs etc, I might be able to reduce the vcore.

But past vcore, vram, FSB and multi, I have no idea what I'm doing :ohwell:

I've got the P5Q-E! :) I love this baby, runs crazy high FSB and is an overclocker's dream.

I've got a 9450 at 400 FSB for my 24/7 overclock, on stock voltages. I can run some benchies or post screen shots of it as high as 3.8 at 1.45V.

Any specific requirements for membership(other than ownership)? Maybe a couple of challenges? Best FSB maybe?

Just noticed your sig, I guess you wont be in the club for long :(

1mhz more on the fsb would get me that magic 4ghz. On air I should have tweaked the other voltages etc but I had no idea what they do.

1.6v :eek:

Is that with load line calibration enabled or...? And what is the VID of that chip?

And is it stable or just enough to load CPU-Z?

I want to try and get one set of benches done on 4 GHz.

Definetly the Pro.

E apparently has a few issues.

Board layout, OCability etc.

Plus the Pro is cheaper! :D
