With the AI Slot Detector, installation of PCIe and PCI expansion cards is made easier. On-board LEDs let the user know if they are properly installed without having to boot into the OS.

Express Gate offers a 5-second bootup into a Linux OS that gives users access to the most commonly used functions such as Internet access. With this feature, the user can surf the web, email or use VoIP applications without booting into Windows.

Graphics

The Asus P5E3 Deluxe offers improved graphics capability through the AMD CrossFire dual GPU technology. And with the Catalyst Control Center, the user is given a real-time 3D rendered preview when tweaking advanced display settings.

Overclocking

For the overclockers, Asus offers the Precision Tweaker 2 system. With Precision Tweaker 2 chipset, FSB termination, CPU PLL and DRAM voltages can be fine-tuned in 0.02 volt increments. In addition, the P5E3 Deluxe also supports overclocking DDR3 memory to up to 1800 MHz.

Cooling and Energy Efficiency

Offering efficient cooling with minimal to zero noise are Asus’ fanless pure copper heat pipe design and the Stack Cool 2 fanless heat dissipation system. Helping with cooling as well as energy efficiency is the Q-Fan 2 system which dynamically adjusts CPU and chassis fan speeds according to system load.

Boasting of an industry-leading 95% power efficiency is the Asus 3rd generation 8-phase VRM design. In addition, the P5E3 Deluxe also features Asus’ EPU and AI Gear 3 technologies. These two features offers power savings of up to 80.23% by adjusting the CPU power supply according to its load.
