I've just started playing with this board and trying to find how to use it correctly.
It seems me a bit tricky actually. But, I've to say it gives the best FSB results for this QX9650. Until now, I've never had the opportunity to bench it above about 458FSB but the P5E WS Pro brings it up to 467FSB stable for Spi 32M.
I've to perform some more investigations on straps and dividers functionning. Strange things happen... It can't boot on strap 266 @420FSB but does it easily @430FSB :p Also, at those clocks while using strap 266, memory dividers won't work and it's required to let this setting to Auto. That's a bit weird because Auto setting results in 2:3 ratio and that means a very high DRAM frequency.
Vcore makes the board stopping at 1.92v...
To be continued.
