The ASUS P5B-E comes with a load of proprietary operating features, for extreme performance, minimum noise, and maximum energy saving. Based on the Intel P965 chipset, this motherboard is quad-core ready and supports all of Intel's Dual Core processors (Socket T). It features the AI NOS utility that automatically detects system loads and provides immediate system adjustments to boost performance. The Precision Tweaker gives you precise voltage control for the CPU (vCore) and memory (vDIMM), and the incorporated SFS (Stepless Frequency Selection) provides easy adjustments of the CPU FSB and memory clock speed.
In case the system hangs up due to overclocking failure, the ASUS C.P.R. overclocking protection tool allows amendment of system settings from the BIOS and eliminates the need for manual clearance of CMOS data. The ASUS Quiet Thermal Solution (AI Gear, AI Nap, and Q-Fan 2) improves performance across the system by providing a silent, cool environment.
With its 8 GB max capacity DDR2 800 dual channel memory system architecture, PCI-E X16 graphic card slot, six expansion slots (3 x PCI-E X1 + 3 x PCI), and nine ATA connectors (8 x SATA + 1 x PATA), it is an excellent option for a mid-range gaming platform, with extreme flexibility and room for a lot of power!
Intel P965+ICH8R Chipset The Intel P965 Express Chipset incorporates Intel Fast Memory Access technology to significantly increase overall system performance by optimizing available bandwidth and reduction of memory access latency. Up to dual-channel DDR2 800 memory is supported by the P965 chipset to provide up to 12.8 GB/s peak memory bandwidth for greater platform performance and memory flexibility. The ICH8R also features SATA 3Gb/s with Intel Matrix Storage Technology support, High-Speed USB 2.0 and HD Audio support.
Intel Core 2 Processor Support This motherboard supports the next-generation LGA 775 Intel Core 2 processors including the Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad and Core 2 Extreme. With Intel's brand-new Core microarchitecture, the Intel Core 2 processors are considered as some of the most powerful and energy-efficient CPUs in the world.
Precision Tweaker Designed for serious overclockers, Precision Tweaker offers a powerful arsenal of overclocking options to help you achieve maximum system performance!
Q-Connector The ASUS Q-Connector allows single-step connection and disconnection of chassis front panel cables with one complete module. This unique adapter ensures quick and accurate connections without the trouble of plugging cables in separately.
SATA on the Go The P5B-E supports next-generation Serial ATA (SATA) 3Gb/s-based hard drives. The external SATA port located on the back I/O panel provides easy setup and hot-plug functions so you can backup photos, videos and other multimedia content on external devices with ease.
Noise Filter The Noise Filter feature eliminates repetitive and stationary noises caused by computer fans and air conditioners as well as other background noises for crystal-clear audio quality.
