Definetly the Pro.

E apparently has a few issues.

Board layout, OCability etc.

Plus the Pro is cheaper! :D

The Pro is 5p cheaper than the E on Ebuyer at the moment.
Ebuyer had the Pro down to £105 only about two days ago .... wish I'd got it then! Oh well, it's only £8 more now. Might order it tomorrow/Monday. I'll let you know!!

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.

It had Load line calibration. VID is 1.325 or something like that. Stable and could run benchies all day. Oh and I was still drunk from the night before :laugh:

Alcohol gave me the courage. Also did I mention it was on air.

Thanks Alex, but Ebuyer has free shipping. I'm not sure if Scan do?
I've never had problems with Ebuyer, but never used Scan before.
Argh! It's so tempting to hit that Buy button.

Scan is a great company, I would recommend them over ebuyer anyday.

I convinced kyle2020 to get it from Scan earlier, so he is now part of the club! You could be too! :p

You did, how where the temps. Or darent you look! :eek:

40's idle 60 load for an hour. I didn't remember to put my good 190cfm fan on or turn the fans up. I'm amazed it didn't overheat.

They're excellent load temps for 1.6v lol.

Was it summer or winter at the time?

I load at around 50*C on 1,46v.

@ tigger, what ever happened to your P5Q OC thread? I tried to find it to put in the useful links section, but searches brought up nothing.

Last week I think and it was room temperature. Or at least what I feel is room temperature.

Well here's some screens, one for dual core, one fore quad core:

e8600 @ 4.5ghz/1.41v (9x500, though I did run 10x450 too):



q6600 @ 3.6GHz/1.41v (9x400):



I wish CPU-z would state the MB on the first page...if you require that the MB be ID'd in the screenshot that's cool, I will only be able to submit my q6600 results at that point because I got rid of most of my e8600 screens. But none-the-less I've had this board since August 2008 and it's been a champ, hell I purchased mine for 134 shipped from Newegg back then, and it was an open box. I recieved it with NOTHING else, just in in an anti-static bag in a plain white box. Nothing but praises though, amazing board. It will be my last S775 board, but it's going to last me a while. If anything, in the future I might snag a 9650 when they're sub 200 used...and even at that I'm not worried about it for a gaming rig.

I did try above 500 with my e8600 on low multi, but I never took pics and I don't recall what the FSB was, I know it was over 520...I may kick the q6600 down, set ram 1:1 and see what I get. But I am looking forward to your results DarkEgo, keep us posted!

In a state of flux...


Everest run @ 530x9 and my ram at 1271mhz 5-5-5-15..one of my first runs with the P5Q Pro after replacing my P45 DFI DK with it.

The E8400 requires less volts now that I know how this boar works better than the ones I used on this screenshot. :)

Nice man! Pretty impressive, I dunno if I'll get that far with a quad..I might give it a go though with 6x multi. Funny you mention what you replaced it with, I replaced my P35 DFI DK with this P5Q Deluxe! That DK board was sweet though, I donated it to a good friends' gaming build, where it sits at 400fsb keeping an e6400 at 3.2ghz without even breaking a sweat. It kept my first q6600 at the same OC's this one is at, with just a little more voltage 1.428 vs 1.416, not huge at all. Way too many memory bios options though lol, that didn't change much in performance. The sound chip on it died recently so I donated my x-fi to him and grabbed another one, aside from that, solid board. But I do like my P5Q Deluxe better for sure. Though that P45 DK is a sweet looking board, how was it?

The Pro has booted at 550x9 for 4.95GHz but I didn't feel good at the volts it needed in my early testing..now I have become familiar with the board I can clock higher on less volts but I haven't taken my E8400 over 530 again yet.

The above was also done on air, with my new loop here just needing some water and putting together I feel much better taking the chip to high volts without worry of heat...on the note of heat, the Xiggy is an amazing cooler and my temps on that where just as impressive.

Funny you should mention the DFI...I don't know how it was as it never worked right...only ran at stock settings and once you try and OC with it the BIOS throws up 88 codes and needs a hard reset to work again...worst part is, its sat in a box with two sticks of 1066mhz OCZ ram in it and it stillneeds an RMA! :banghead:

I will get round to it one day.... :laugh:

Damn man! Well I was impressed with that DK P35, it's 4 phase power was pretty stable, it was pretty damn oc-able, but just didn't have the assurance and feeling of confidence this Asus board gives me. I couldn't get 550 to boot, not sure what the issue is, but I tried 6x cpu multi, 1100 on my ram is cake, I've hit 1120 on 2.1v...that's about it tho, they were 45 shipped a few months ago lol! I tried up to 1.5v on FSB and NBv, 1.2 SB, 1.5v PCIe/Sata, 1.56 PLL, 1.41875v CPUv, LLC enabled, set mem to 2.1v, no dice. I probably would have a better chance with a dual, but I had to try. I did get 500 to post, then I figured I'd shoot up further to 550 lol. Never had to clear the cmos though, another good thing I like about this board. The DFI was nice with the jumper on the I/O panel, but I did use it a lot when tweaking and going for higher OC's. I could probably count on one hand how many times I've cleared the CMOS on this P5Q.

Definately nice work aCid, if you can I'd love to see a screenshot. Nice work again!

I will get on that as soon as I get my water up and running. :)

I don't know if I should add the FlexII's to my loop as they do 1200mhz 5-5-5-15 @ 2.1v and I'm sure 2.3v will see around 1300mhz even though reviews say they are hard to OC....maybe the new P45/X48 chipset will allow for greater gains than the P35/X38 the reviewers used. :toast:

I redid my PC today and put it in its new home; a Lian Li P60-F..amazing cabale management potential and great build, best case I have ever owned. I too have both the 900 and 300 as you do and I value them the most for their cooling ability, great air in those cases. :rockout:

On the downside of my new Lian Li..in the same shipment from ascstinger (His whole PC!) the Canadian Customs or UPS idiots lost/stole my 4870 1GB that had a block waiting to be installed from ascstinger also...now its a claim and I'm stuck using my GTX+ still. :banghead:


Bottom Line: DONT use UPS!

That Lian Li looks like a sweet case man, I think if I were to go with anything it'd be the Antec 900v2, 1200 or HAF32...though I'm pretty content with the 900 (first gen style, but at least has 2 holes in mb tray for some cable mgt), I've yet to mod it, but that will be where I go next with it. Kinda wish this case had filters like the 300 or 900 v2, but oh well.

I'd have to go with airflow, and tbh if I didn't get the 900 for xmas 2007, I would have the 300 now, just on a budget factor. But I do gotta say, that Lian Li looks very tempting, too bad it doesn't have a top exhaust fan factory, I almost require that now just due to having it in my last 3 cases. But with you going water, that's not an issue. What's all gonna be in your loop?

Sucks about the vid card and customs, hope they don't take too damn long! :toast:

Nice overlclocks guys! :toast:

Cant wait to see what my Q6600 is capable of once its back together, but I'm going to need help getting there, lol.

Agree with Kursah on the cases, I was looking at new cases just for hell of it, and I can find nothing for the same price as my CM 690 that can beat it on airflow. 3 x 140mm and 4 x 120mm :rockout:

My 530fsb run was @ 4.78GHz, speedstep was still on so it downed the multi to 6; Everest will confirm this. :) :toast:
