Cool Asus P5K Deluxe (DDR2) / P5K3 Deluxe (DDR3) - Intel P35 Bearlake/ICH9R - Info/Photos

It's that time of year again... fresh new chipset off the production line = Intel P35 Bearlake chipset + ICH9R

Kudos to Asus for this first box of goodies (more on the way )

Notes:
  • Update to 0304 bios to fix the incorrect cpuz reported cpu/memory clock and timings.
  • Asus P5K Deluxe supports cpus from 800FSB and upward. But doesn't support 533FSB cpus. Read here.
  • Added: June 13th, 2007: Confirmation from bingo13/Gary from Anandtech here, black dimm slots are designed to be optimised for higher memory clocks/low latency clocks compared to yellow dimm slots. I found this out went revisiting Corsair 10000C5D Dominators in black dimm slots here.
  • Heads up for folks with PS/2 mouse, these new Asus P5K/P5K3 Deluxe boards removed the mouse PS/2 port in favour of USB mouse devices. So if you have a PS/2 mouse you'd either need to grab a USB mouse or PS/2 to USB adaptor http://www.auspcmarket.com.au/show_p...de]=CB-SKUSBPS. Unfortunately, for me that particular adaptor didn't work with my KVM switch mouse PS/2 connector cable so a USB mouse was needed.
  • Recovery from failed overclocks seems to be much better on Asus P5K Deluxe. Just turning off from power switch and powering psu off, wait a bit and power psu back on and power up would initiate the recovery mode - I see the bios detecting cpu at default 9x266FSB for my E6600 so i can F1 back into bios to set proper settings. No need for clear CMOS so far
  • Memory dividers available on Asus P5K Deluxe depend on the FSB Frequency set. Not all FSB Frequencies have all dividers available for them (well for 266FSB at least haven't tested the rest yet).
  • At 266FSB you have access to DDR2-667 (4:5), DDR2-800 (2:3), DDR2-889 (3:5), and DDR2-1067 (1:2). Photo
  • At 333FSB there's DDR2-667 (1:1), DDR2-800 (5:6), DDR2-833 (4:5), DDR2-1000 (2:3), DDR2-1067 (5:8), DDR2-1111 (3:5), and DDR2-1333 (1:2). Photo
  • At 400FSB there's DDR2-800 (1:1), DDR2-960 (5:6), DDR2-1000 (4:5), DDR2-1200 (2:3), DDR2-1280 (5:8), DDR2-1333 (3:5) and DDR2-1600 (1:2). Photo
  • At 500FSB there's DDR2-1000 (1:1), DDR2-1200 (5:6), DDR2-1250 (4:5), DDR2-1500 (2:3), DDR2-1600 (5:8), DDR2-1667 (3:5) and DDR2-2000 (1:2). Photo
  • Seems for at least 1:1, 4:5 and 2:3 dividers AUTO subtimings are set pretty tight, performing in Super Pi times just behind manually set subtimings of 3-30-8-3-6.
  • CPU Voltage Damper option in bios reduces vcore droop by as much as 75%. From approximately 0.032v droop to 0.008v droop! Finally, Asus answers our prayers in regards to vcore droop
  • Transaction Booster bios option when enabled, seems to boost memtest86+ v1.70 reported memory bandwidth. By default Transaction Booster is set to AUTO, but when Enabled or Disabled a sub menu appears in the form of levels. When enabled, Transaction Booster gives you an option to select 2 Boost levels of 0 or 1. When disabled, Transaction Booster gives you an option to select 3 different Relaxed levels between 0-3 - level 0 at least looks the same as AUTO set Transaction Booster in memtest86+ v1.70 bandwidth.
  • Interesting to note that for tests at 9x444FSB 1:1 4-4-4-4 2-20-2-2-2 at 2.1v vdimm that Transaction Booster AUTO and TRFC = 20, memtest reports 5383MB/s memory bandwidth compared with TRFC = 25 or 30 at 5201MB/s. But at TRFC = 20 if you enable Transaction Booster with Boost level 1, memtest still reports 5383MB/s. Could it be Transaction Booster Enabled just manipulates a tighter TRFC or other subtimings values ? Without memset for windows we won't be able to see what the subtimings are for real for now though.
  • The Stilt has figured out the strap changes for P5K Deluxe/P35 chipsets http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...9&postcount=17

    By The Stilt View Post
    On Asus P5K-series there are two strap changes:

    At 293FSB the board changes FSEL strap to 1333FSB to make more memory dividers available. This doesn´t have any effect to performance.

    The performance level is also changed for following dividers:

    1:2 Performance level changes from level 2 to level 1
    Level 1 is the tightest possible, so expect some huge bandwidth

    Dividers 3:5 & 1:2 are FSEL strapped to 800FSB.

    At 500FSB the performance level of all dividers are set more loose.

    1:1 Performance level changes from level 6 to level 10.
    Level 10 is the loosest one. Usually the chipset can handle level 5 just fine

    5:6 Performance level changes from level 5 to level 8.
    Setting level 4 should not be a problem.

    4:5 Performance level changes from level 4 to level 7.
    Setting level 4 - 3 should be fine.

    Since the memory frequency would get a bit high at bigger dividers I don´t have actual values for them. But I recon the values would be following:

    2:3 Level 3 -> Level 6
    5:8 Level 4 -> Level 7
    3:5 Level 2 -> Level 5
    1:2 Level 1 -> Level 4


Asus P5K Deluxe 0304 Bios Screens

























Flashing bios on Asus P5K Deluxe:

Asus P5K Deluxe uses 2MB sized bios flash ROMs. So best way to flash or update your bios on Asus P5K Deluxe is to use a USB flash drive and the motherboard's own inbuilt EZ Flash 2 function:
  1. Put bios on USB drive
  2. Ensure USB legacy is enabled and boot into bios
  3. Use EZ Flash 2 in bios to select the bios on your usb drive.
  4. Follow prompts to flash and wait until the auto reboot happens.
  5. Sometimes it may not boot up straight away, so turn off system, clear CMOS and you should be up and running again.

When are we expecting the p5k3 to be hitting the shelves? Looks like something investing in, if not for the ddr3, then definatly for the high fsb being achieved by this board.. And for that matter, when are we expecting ddr3 to be dropping, I guess I'll go for a cheap kit until some kits with decent speeds/timings hit the scene..

i think FSB is limited to the CPU you are benching so it will probably be the same as some of the good P965 boards

i am harassing disties for the DDR3 mobo as i can get DDR3 RAM but not mobo yet
