    asus x48 and P45 questions

    firstly does the tuniq tower fit the rampage formula? (any pics)

    and secondly are there any users that have the P5Q and P5Q pro? and user reviews on it? how is stability and over clocking?

    Re: asus x48 and P45 questions

    I'm thinking of buying the Asus P5Q Pro for my new setup, but I haven't bought it yet, though I've read a few reviews, it seems its surprisingly a good mid-range motherboard to overclock. Though I'm not so sure if id pick it, don't really know why... I don't know that much about motherboards, maybe that's why xd

    Re: asus x48 and P45 questions

    Im using an Asus P5Q, first impressions were excellent, ive been using it for about 2 weeks now and i cant really fault it, lots of people have had great success with overclocking on this board

    Overall performance is good, id say its better than my previous board (gigabyte P35 DS4) which is saying something as that was a very good board!

    Re: asus x48 and P45 questions

    I have a P5Q pro and an MSI P45 board and one thing I have noticed from both boards is memory compatibility is very picky particulary for 1066mem. Also as it is only early days the bios have a lot of bugs and stuff. If your into overclocking you might be better with a P35 board until P45 matures a bit.

    Re: asus x48 and P45 questions

    I have a p5q deluxe and clocked a 6600 to 3.16ghz - seems perfectly fine so far. I know it's not the same exactly but a lot of things should be similar.

    If the mounting is the same as the ultima-90i and the mosfets heatsink is the same as the p5e on the formula, then ideally.. no. But a little prising with a screwdriver of the heatsink fins and you can make a little space for the edge of the mounting plate . Though make sure you get rid of any little metal barbs that may come off as you dont want them falling on the PCB.
