ASUS P5B (Core 2 Duo)

ASUS P5B (Core 2 Duo)

Mark: Average

ASUS P5B (intel P965 + ICH8) + CPU intel E6300

  • the latest SNAP driver
  • amouse

Now my eCS beta 3 installation works on the P5B motherboard.

The PC features an ASUS P5B motherboard (north/southbridge intel P965/ICH8) with an intel core 2 duo E6300, 1 GB DDR2 PC6400, ATI Radeon X550 a Hitachi deskstar 7K160 (3Gb S-ATA) and a Sony DVD-RW.

  • the realtek ethernet controller works (I succesfully connected to the internet via ADSL)
  • audio support (ADI AD1988A) works with uniaudio ??????
  • S-ATA and P-ATA disk and DVD work with the latest Danis506.add
  • the ATI X550 works although the image is a bit noisy (I've to re-check the settings)
  • USB mass storage works (I tested with an external FAT32 hard disk and with a Pentax digital camera)

The performance seems good. Seamonkey 1.1 opens in 1-2 seconds...

The problems are:

  • the chipset is too hot (55-60 Celsius degrees)
  • the CPU is about 44 Celsius degrees, while I expected it to be cooler than my old P4 2600, since I read that the E6300 can be easily overclocked from 1.866 GHz to almost 3 GHz with the standard cooler. I've to check if there is a gap between the CPU and the cooler.
  • USB is not usable as it is too slow (write speed is around 160 KB/sec) I tested the transfer speed on an old Dell Inspiron 5100 and it was about 260 KB/sec (still too slow, but a bit better).
  • ACPI power management, thermal control, CPU throttling control do not work
