Re: Asus P5Q Deluxe - P45

Hello all,

just installed my P5Q-Dlx yesterday and currently just running everything in at stock. Had a slight issue with the I/O shield not matching up very well and lost alot of ports (USB, Firewire etc), this was using an ANTEC P182 chassis. After taking everything apart again for a closer look it appears my board was slightly warped (like a rainbow) and this was causing the I/O mismatch. Gentle flexed the board in the opposite direction and managed to get a nice I/O match but alas I still can't access my rear firewire port as it seems the I/O that contains Firewire and eSata is mounted a bit to high. Also another slight probem I had was due to this P5Q-Dlx sitting 1mm-2mm higher that my previous ASUS P5K-E WIFI/AP the Thermalright TRUE heatsink is a bit to high now for me to be able to put my P182 case cover back on!

Lol I don't suppose many of you have noticed these things as you have your boards on an open bench!

Anyway I have read the entire "ASUS P5Q Deluxe discussion" over at XS forums which took me about five hours and I found most of it over my head, seems everyone is talking another language and 100% obsessed with that Everest Memory benchmark?

I am running very modest air-cooled system with an INTEL E6300 and a new 4GB TWIN2X4096-6400C4DHX kit, the E6300 has been happily running 3400MHz (1.400vCore) on my older P5K-E WIFI/AP so I'm hoping to get that same overclock from this new board? I think my chip may have an FSB wall at about 486MHz so not sure if I can go higher but will try, failing that I'm gonna buy either a Wolfdale/Yorkfield to replace my circa 2006 E6300 when the price cuts kick in.

I'm also not sure I have bought the best memory for some overclocking fun? this TWIN2X4096-6400C4DHX kit seems nice and all but from basic testing on my old P35 platform I couldn't get it stable much over 500MHz (DDR2-1000).

I am looking at this kit, anyone know if this is any good on the P5Q-DLx?

OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) PC2-8500C5 1066MHz Dual Channel Platinum Series DDR2 (OCZ2P10664GK)

Well that's it for now, I will go and get the basic overclocking stuff sorted and then come back for some help with the final tweaks. I am a bit out of touch with alot of these new BIOS options (PLL? SKEWS? PL? etc) so if there is a good sticky somewhere pls point me in the right direction so I don't have to ask nOOby questions lol!

All my voltages are on auto atm but will shift the board into manual control soon, just getting a feel for things before blowing it apart!

Re: Asus P5Q Deluxe - P45

Chispy mate is it possible to get some feedback regarding voltages form you,on 1201 bios, we are getting contradictory results... some say Vdimm is spot on now, I cannot tell this from my mobo neither can another user... is it possible to verify these voltages plz... it's so hard with the bozard in the case to do anything... since you are a bencher I hardly suspect it's even on a mobo tray

here were the results by Jvidia that seem to remain unchanged for my 1201 experience, at least I don't need more Vdimm for my stable settings...





thx in advance...

Re: Asus P5Q Deluxe - P45

Done with DMM with new Battery and probe tips were clean with alcohol , tested twice to assure meassurement were correct. Here are my findings on Bios 1201: Pictures were taken with DMM while performing tests:

Asus P5Q-Deluxe / Voltage Readings / Bios 1201

V.Dim - Bios 2.02 , iddle 1.96 = v.Dif 0.06 / Load 1.93
V.Dim - Bios 2.10 , iddle 2.03 = v.Dif 0.07 / Load 2.01

---------------------------------------------------------







---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



V.North - Bios Auto 1.12 ,
V.North - Bios 1.10 , 1.08v. dmm = V.Dif 0.02
V.North - Bios 1.20 , 1.17v. dmm = V.Dif 0.03



------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Re: Asus P5Q Deluxe - P45

Thx mate , much appreciated, just as I thought... weird that your mobo undervolts the ram then , mine does the opposite, 2volt in bios was 2.07 in reality (idle)

This was done at which FSB ? Jvidia's one was at 450FSB, mine at 400FSB... could there be a difference too ?

I liked my P5Q-Deluxe (I had an issue where the board would not post with ram set to 1200 or above, except for 1317 & 1333, so I RMA'd it). I hope I get a fully functional board back. Other than the ram issue, the board was rock solid and very easy to overclock and the settings are easy to work out & optimize too. I give it a good recommendation.

Max FSB on air with 1.33v = 590 (cpu limited at this voltage):


Heres an everest bench at 571 FSB (PL10):
