ASUS P5E3 Deluxe Wi-Fi-AP@n

maximum pc
30 November 2007
  • Summary: The “unofficial” FSB doesn’t trouble us, but newer is better, and with the X48 launch imminent, the X38 is something of a head-scratcher. And that’s really a shame, as the P5E3 Deluxe is a great board. It’s fast and solid and packs just about every feature you would want in an Intel system. Unless you’re hung up on getting SLI support, this is clearly one of the best boards available today for Intel.
  • Pros: Impressively fast and stable motherboard.
  • Cons: No SLI support; will soon be replaced by X48 version

ASUS P5E3 Deluxe - fully-loaded and ready to fly

HEXUS
19 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Intel's dual- and quad-core processors have taken the performance lead away from AMD and, in turn, driven many die-hard supporters towards thinking about an Intel-based system as their next computer - be it a build-it-yourself project or off-the-shelf system. The processor - no matter how good - is only one part of the equation. The other oft-overlooked part is the supporting core-logic and how it complements the CPU.

Asus P5E3 Deluxe WiFi Intel X38 Motherboard Review

PC Perspective
16 October 2007
  • Excerpt: The Intel X38 chipset launched just last week and we are already on our second motherboard using it.  The Asus P5E3 Deluxe motherboard is one of the few to offer not just two PCIe x16 slots, but three for the future triple GPU technologies.  Whether or not those pan out to be good ideas has yet to be seen, but this X38 motherboard will have you covered either way.

Asus P5E3 Deluxe (X38) Motherboard

CPU3D
10 October 2007
  • Summary: I have to say, the Asus P5E3 Deluxe is a very good motherboard indeed. It outperformed all the motherboards we've tested to date, including its predecessor the Asus P5K3 Deluxe which uses the P35 chipset. If you look at the scores in all our benchmarks, the results speaks for themselves. It seems that Intel has finally delivered a high performance chipset in the form of the X38.

ASUS P5E3 Deluxe (WiFi-AP @n)

Legion Hardware
10 October 2007
  • Summary: The P5E3 Deluxe (WiFi-AP @n) is an exceptional product from ASUS and dare I say it once again, this is probably the best motherboard we have ever tested. Although the P5E3 Deluxe is very much like the P5K3 Deluxe and many of the other ASUS P35 motherboards, it does come with enough new features to make it a little more special.

  • Conclusion: I’ll start of by saying that this is a very good motherboard. So far I haven’t had any stability issues at all, the only crashes I’ve had can be attributed to overclocking too far i.e. self inflicted. The layout of the board is good and allows for tidy cable management with the majority of connectors lined up along the front edge and the bottom edge, only the P4/8 connector for the CPU 12V is elsewhere and even that is close to the top edge which makes it easily...
  • Pros: Copper laiden cooling loooks great and cools well too, DDR3 is fast and overclockable, Maxed out my E2160 without breaking a sweat, Great layout, Fantastic fan control options, Excellent BIOS, Loads of useful expansion and connection options, Well packaged and finished off
  • Cons: BIOS F10 bug, Quite an expensive motherboard, X38 chipset is no longer the latest from intel, ASUS website for support is slow and not the most reliable, although good in content

  • Excerpt: The ‘Tools’ menu in the ASUS P5E3 Deluxe BIOS offer three additional BIOS level applications. The first of these is the ‘ASUS EZ Flash 2′ which as the name suggests is designed to allow users to flash their BIOS easily. When you select the EZ Flash option from the menu it becomes immediately apparent that this is a seperate utility by the change of interface. The EZ Flash utility tells you which BIOS version you are currently using in a box at the top left.

  • Excerpt: The P5E3 is an Intel X38 chipset based motherboard which means that it supports the latest 775 socket Intel CPUs. The X38 chipset supports both DDR2 & DDR3 memory but ASUS have chosen to provide support for DDR3 only on this board. I consider this to be the better choice now that DDR3 memory has come down significantly in price.

  • Excerpt: So now we come to performance, the question here though is how do you measure the performance of a motherboard? The problem is that most measurable tests are dependant on another component more so than the motherboard. This is not a problem it you have large amounts of resources because you can substitute in another equivalent motherboard for comparison, but I do not have such luxury.
