Asus P5E3 Deluxe

The Asus P5E3 Deluxe is an LGA 775 socket motherboard based on Intel’s X38 northbridge chipset. Among its notable key features are the innovative AI Slot Detector and dual RAID capability thanks to the Intel ICH9R southbridge chipset and a JMicron controller.

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.

The ICH9R southbridge offers 6 SATA connectors with RAID functions in RAID 0, 1, 10 and 5 while the JMicron controller provides two more SATA connectors for RAID 0, 1, and JBOD functions.

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.

The P5E3 Deluxe also features Asus’ exclusive AI NOS (Non-delay Overclocking System) dynamic overclocking technology.

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.
