Asus sent me a P5Q3 Deluxe to play with and "beta test", and I've just had some quick rounds with it and one of my E8500s.
I'll be posting results, ideas, bugs and tips 'n' tricks in this thread.
BIOS releases will also be posted & linked in this thread.
I'll do my best in maxing this board and taking every part of it ( and other part ) over the limits no matter what, so...let's start with the initial, "get to meet" things ( more to come soon, I need to make some changes to the testing rooms and also organize my stuff and take care of my gf as well ).
Core 2 Duo E8500 Q807A510
Asus P5Q3 Deluxe ( BIOS v0804 Beta )
CellShock DDR3-1800 8-7-6-21 2GB Kit ( Micron D9GTR chips ) [ orange slots at the moment ]
ThermalRight Ultra-120 Extreme
550MHz FSB, DDR3-1650 6-5-5-16, Performance Level 8, CPU @ 4.4GHz
This Pi was run before I found out that it could run stable at the same clocks with PL8 instead of PL9.
I don't remember the exact "scores" on my P5K3 Deluxe testing, but it looks like P45 is "tuned" for low memory frequencies yet maintaining low latencies & high rates ( bandwidth ).
More to come... soon ( maybe tomorrow )
