Asus P5E

The Asus P5E is an LGA 775 socket motherboard based on the Intel X38 chipset. It comes in an ATX form factor measuring 12 x 9.6 inches and offers quite a few features for the PC and gaming enthusiast.

The P5E features AMD CrossFire technology for improved rendering speed and better image quality. In addition, the board also offers AMD´s Catalyst Control Center. This allows the user to tweak their settings and check the effects with a 3D-rendered preview, all in real-time. The Asus P5E also offers 2-Phase DDR2 to achieve better memory performance.

For overclocking the system, the Asus P5E offers the Precision Tweaker 2 system. This allows the user to fine-tune the northbridge, front side bus termination, CPU PLL and DRAM voltages in small increments. For added convenience when overclocking, the P5E offers a convenient way to store or load different BIOS settings via the O.C. Profile feature. And, with C.P.R. (CPU Parameter Recall), users can skip the clearing of CMOS data when the system hangs and re-tweak overclocking settings via a simple restart.

Other convenience features include CrashFree BIOS 3 and EZ-Flash 2. The former allows the user to restore BIOS data from a USB flash disk. The latter allows BIOS updates before entering the operating system using a USB flash disk as well.

On the power management side, the RoHS compliant P5E features Asus EPU technology. This technology coupled with AI Gear 3 monitors and automatically adjusts the power sent to the CPU depending on load. This system provides estimated energy savings of 80%. Cooling the system is the fanless Stack Cool 2 system and heat pipe design. With Asus’ Q-Fan 2, the speed of the CPU and chassis fans are automatically adjusted depending on load.
