Asus P5B vs P5W Tags: Motherboards Asus Overclocking Last response: March 25, 2007 1:15 AM in Motherboards Share dougle March 24, 2007 9:08:09 PM I've read that if a person were going to go with an E6600 or higher, Asus P5W is the way to go if you don't intend to overclock. Any ideas on this? I noticed that very few people mention buying the P5W board, why? Thanks More about : asus p5b p5w jamiepotter March 24, 2007 9:42:26 PM Because the P965 board (P5B) is cheaper. The 975x board (P5W) is if you intend to use crossfire. If you don't, why would you spend more? If you're not overclocking, there's bugger all difference anyway. They just run at the same speed with very tiny differences in end performance. In any case, I would say that the P5N-E SLI is the best of the bunch anyway, regardless of whether you want to sli or not. Cheaper with loads of cool features, and decent OCability. dougle March 25, 2007 1:15:22 AM Thanks Can't find your answer ? Ask !
