A few days ago we posted a review of a new Asus mainboard on Intel P35 chipset – Asus P5K Deluxe. As we saw in our review, this mainboard offers advanced users a pretty attractive set of features and they will most likely love it. And it means that the sales volume of Asus P5K Deluxe should become quite significant and it might as well repeat the great success of P5B model.
This particular fact inspired us to continue investigating Asus P5K Deluxe, especially since there still were a lot of questions left that we didn’t have the chance to address in the previous article.
In particular, we are going to pay special attention to practical overclocking techniques on this mainboard, new BIOS Setup functions and perform another performance test session in order to estimate the efficiency of this solution in overclocked platforms.
Moreover, Asus engineers provided an additional intrigue by releasing a new BIOS version. This version 0404 added a few new interesting options to the BIOS Setup, which will definitely discuss also.
Note that this article is a continuation to our previous Asus P5K Deluxe Mainboard Review. If you haven’t yet read it you may find the today’s material a little hard to follow.
So, let’s get started. Please note that this time all the tests were performed with a newer BIOS version 0404 from June 21, 2007.
