TPower i45 Software And Accessories
Biostar’s TPower2 OC Tweaker utility puts a different face on the same features found with its less expensive TP45 HP.
Voltage and CPU FSB controls are the same, but why would Biostar think this interface was better ?
Fan speeds can be monitored and altered from a second menu.
A third menu allows updating BIOS from within Windows, a method which we were afraid to try.
Problem reports can be sent directly to Biostar Support for assistance.

Biostar includes enough cables in its installation kit to build a fairly elaborate system, adding its supplemental VRM/Chipset cooler for good measure. The included 70x15mm fan is a Tranyoung model 7015H12S, rated at 36CFM, 3800RPM, and 37 decibels.

Where are the lower price P45 M/B ?Reply
Asus P5Q pro is out for €110 and P5Q deluxe for €165 the price difference is about 70$ in Greece.
51 pages... You won't be upset if I read just the last 3 pages right?Reply
I suppose I can get some good from having read this. Did you get paid by the word? Maybe next time you could just put together a complete features chart so that we can have some convenient comparison? You know, so someone could go to a chart and see at a glance which boards had eSATA or firewire, or 8 USB.Reply
I'd rather have the overabundance of information than a lack of information. Presentation could use a little refining (I.E. comparison charts and the likes), but having the relevant information available at least is a good thing.Reply
the introduction and specifics are nice, the comparision isn't. so, why don't you test with an 8500 or qx9650? 6850 are outdated... and a mobo handling a c2d doesn't mean it can handle a quad too, see P5K for example (it stinks when it comes to a q6600).Reply

Tom's Hardware wants the performance of current articles to reflect that of recent articles, so a "standard test platform" was chosen a while ago. It will get updated, but probably not before the new socket becomes widely available.
I would have liked to see something such as a P35 and an X48 as controls to help analyze the P45 Performance.Reply
In otherwords, What is the P45 Gaining me over the older P35.
What would I gain by going to the X48. (Or Lose)

The first 17 pages were filled with nothing but junk from ASUS. Do us a favor: don't even bother featuring or *MENTIONING* anything for any reason from a company that refuses to RMA 200-400 dollar brand new motherboards with anything other then used and usually broken junk. It destroyed my enthusiasm for the article.Reply
