Asus P5K PRO

The Asus P5K PRO is an Intel P35 chipset motherboard that is compatible with Intel’s Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, Core 2 Duo, Pentium Extreme, Pentium D and Pentium 4 Processors.

Graphics

The P5K PRO features ATI’s CrossFire dual GPU technology for greater graphics performance. CrossFire offers the user higher antialiasing, anisotropic filtering, shading, and texture settings. This dual GPU technology is further complemented by the Catalyst Control Center, which gives the user 3D rendered previews when changing configurations.

Overclocking

Overclocking the system can easily be done through the Precision Tweaker 2 system. This one stop overclocking solution offers the user fine-tuned control over voltages for northbridge, Front Side Bus (FSB) termination, CPU PLL, and DRAM. These can be adjusted in small 0.02 volt increments. The Asus P5K PRO also offers support for FSB 1333 and DDR2 1066 for improved overclocking performance and better power efficiency.

The motherboard also features Asus’ Super Memspeed Technology, which gives the user native DDR2 1066 support with the ability to overclock to up to 1370 MHz.

Cooling and Energy Efficiency

The Asus P5K PRO uses an exclusive two-slot thermal design which allows for better air flow around the system. And with its 3rd Generation 8-Phase Power design, the P5K PRO offers increased energy efficiency and cooling performance over its 6-Phase counterparts.

It also features the ASUS Energy Processing Unit (EPU). Working in tandem with AI Gear 3 technology, the EPU features improvements in VRM (voltage regulator module) efficiency. The EPU tracks the CPU and feeds it power according to the load. The P5K PRO also has the Q-Fan 2 system for dynamic fan speeds.

Audio

The P5K PRO offers an integrated 8 channel High Definition audio codec as well as a noise filter for eliminating unwanted ambient noise while recording.
