If you wanted a larger case and to spend a bit more it would have been possible to give this motherboard more Asus P5B, a quad-core processor, and a few more hard drives to work with.


One problem I had Asus P5B setting up the computer was that the on-board ethernet was not working well and Asus P5B often laggy or unresponsive. This seems to be a relatively widespread occurance with the P5B-VM motherboards and was quite an annoyance during testing. After the system was built, fully updated, and running properly some tests were performed to judge the performance.

It would be easy enough to throw in Asus P5B PCI Express video card and dramatically improve the performance in these areas, but my intention with the build was a Micro-ATX system that was as small and quiet as possible, so I stuck Asus P5B the on-board option. The system was tested with Windows Vista so, if you are interested, the Vista Experience score was 3. This is based on the lowest score out of the five areas tested, in this case Gaming. The system also lagged in Graphics Aero performance where it came in at a 3.

Given the results it did not seem necessary to test too much past this point, at least considering graphics. Using SuperPi Asus P5B extremely quick calculation times were recorded.

The system, without any tinkering, came in at What this boils down to is a capable computer and a motherboard that offers competitive performance, but with limited graphical capability. This should be no surprise at all for builders, especially factoring in the use of 2GB Asus P5B RAM and that E processor. As far as Micro-ATX motherboards go, it is one of the more stable and more capable products I have used lately.

Port multiplier is a technology targeted to external hard disk drives, allowing you to connect up to 15 Serial ATA hard disk drives to a single SATA port. In order to use more than one SATA HDDs on this port you need an external port multiplier bridge, which is an external device sold separately. The hard disks are connected to this device, while this device is connected Asus P5B this port multiplier port, which, in turn, is internally connected to one of the SATA ports controlled by the JMicron Asus P5B chip on the motherboard.

Asus P5B 2: SATA ports. This motherboard has one Gigabit Ethernet port, controlled by the south bridge using a Realtek RTLB to make the physical layer interface. The audio section from this motherboard provides 7.

Help!! Asus P5B won't boot

The signal-to-noise ratio for its output is of 95 dB and it supports up to kHz sampling rate for its inputs and outputs the one used by the two abovementioned boards from MSI and Gigabyte support kHz only for their outputs, with their inputs limited to 96 kHz. Figure 3: The P5B Deluxe has a wealth of standard options Asus P5B the BIOS, Asus P5B serious overclockers will be frustrated by the lack of user-configurable settings related to voltage and frequency. What Asus provides us with instead are three settings for intelligent overclocking, catering for resource-hungry applications, reduced noise and power consumption, or normal use.

The good news is that the board's performance with a 2.

The question for those who are considering this motherboard is whether or not it's worth waiting for the potentially more powerful Nvidia Nforce5 chipset. The Asus P5B Deluxe has the advantage that it's already available for purchase, and it delivers great Asus P5B. The P5B motherboard supports the most powerful and energy efficient Intel® Core™2 processors.


It features the Intel® P chipset and supports DDR2. Introduction.


ASUS P5B is a socket LGA motherboard targeted to new Core 2 Duo family, as it is based on the new Intel P chipset.
