17 August 2008
  • Summary: The Asus P5E3 Premium is bursting with features: FireWire, gigabit ethernet, wireless-N, eSATA, ATI Crossfire — the list goes on and on. Though the CPU support on our sample was problematic, this was probably isolated to our sample. Other reviews around the web do not mention anything like the CPU / EPU problems we encountered. The board's main negative is obviously the price. Many users would balk at a $200 motherboard, and the retail price is almost double that.
  • Pros: Amazing feature-set, Can control 5 fans, Express Gate, Overclocks well
  • Cons: Ridiculous price, CPU support buggy, EPU a bust?

18 April 2008
  • Conclusion: The ASUS P5E3 Premium WIFI Ap@n is ASUS’s top of the line X48 motherboard that currently retails in the $350.00 to $400.00 USD range. It is highly feature laden and in our testing all of the features worked as advertised which is quite exceptional in today’s market. The board is extremely well built using only the best components as it should be for the price that you are paying.

Asus P5E3 Premium

maximum pc
8 February 2008
  • Summary: The only numbers worth mentioning are surprisingly subpar disk I/O numbers and a performance edge in FEAR. The Premium’s one serious advantage over Nvidia’s 780i is still pretty valuable though: validated 1,600MHz front-side bus support, which makes it a far safer bet for anyone who places CPU performance above running two GeForce cards in SLI. But who knows, maybe AMD will do Intel a favor one day by introducing GPUs that people will use.
  • Pros: Official 1,600FSB support, eSATA, and 802.11n for free!
  • Cons: Flaky BIOS problems and no SLI.

Asus P5E3 Premium X48 DDR3 Motherboard

Overclock3D
8 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Up until today there has always been a clear line between the two types of Asus motherboards. The P5* Deluxe/Premium series has always been for those who want a good board at a reasonable price with some mediocre overclocking options and on-board extra's such as WiFi. While the Republic of Gamers series has always been aimed squarely at overclockers. However, with the release of the P5E3 Premium Asus have closed the gap.
  • Pros: Extensive BIOS options with ability to manually enter voltage selection., Managed 490FSB on our Q6600 chip and 520FSB on a QX9650., 3-phase power delivery to DDR3 slots., Simple but innovative features such as the Q-Shield, Good overall layout., Motherboard jumper to unleash insane voltage options.
  • Cons: Nowt!

ASUS P5E3 and MSI X38 Platinum (Intel X38)

Digital-Daily
12 May 2007
  • Summary: Above all, we note the major shortcoming of both the boards - they are aimed solely at DDR3 memory. The motherboards themselves and the chipset itself have nothing to complain about. The problem is that the price of a DDR3 kit is much higher than the similar DDR2 kit. At the same time, there isn't much of a speed difference between systems based on DDR2 and DDR3. The only exception is some specific applications, as well as systems based on 4-core processors.
  • Pros: high stability and good performance level;, two PCI Express x16 slots;, support for SerialATA II /RAID ( 7 lines; ICH9R + Marvell 88SE6111);, support for one P-ATA line (Marvell 88SE6111);, integrated 8-channel audio and Gigabit Ethernet LAN controller;, support for USB2.0 (12 ports) and IEEE-1394 (Firewire, 2 ports);, rich package bundle (includes AI Remote, an additional fan);, passive/active system for cooling the chipset and the power supply module;, a wide select...
  • Cons: Not found., Not found.
