Default ASUS P5K Deluxe WiFi-AP review by TechGage

These new chipsets seem to be pretty fast with their faster memory speeds contributing significantly- the interesting thing about these chipsets with the DDR3 seems to be that loose timings are well worth the higher clockspeeds. Rob got this and the p5k3 to 475-480 FSB which isn't too shabby- I bet future bioses will bring it over 500.

Compared to the P5K3, the P5K retails for around $30 - $40 less, but essentially offers the exact same performance. The P5K3 only has an obvious advantage because the stock memory was running at a higher frequency. That said, $225 is well worth the cost of this board if you are looking for one that's feature-rich. There is a non-deluxe version of the board available for $150 on average, but it lacks WiFi, a PCI-E 1x slot, two S-ATA ports among other things. I am also unsure whether you could expect the same performance as seen in this review. In the end, I'd easily opt for the Deluxe version because it's complete.



Here's a pic with the P5K left and the P5K3 on the right- the only difference is in the heatpipes?

I much rather prefer the heatsinks on the P35-DQ6.
