Q:The BIOS screnshoots on that article show settings of up to 2.45V for memory, and voltage settings for the northbridge chipset. Those settings are not available on the publicly avalaible P5B-E . Memory voltage is cap at 2.1V max even in the latest 1002 Bios. Either those screenshots are from a different board or you got a special BIOS from ASUS. Also , your corsair memory is rated at 2.1V but the P5B-E only deliver 2.02v when set at max settings of 2.1V in the BIOS. I'm wondering is this wasn't your limiting factor when trying to overvlock.

A: Hey there. I just booted up the Asus P5B-E motherboard and using the 09/06/06 beta BIOS the highest memory voltage option is 2.45V and Northbridge voltage options were also present. Flashing the BIOS with the latest version available on the Asus website (1002 , release Jan 31/07), we also found the same options and the options, layout and colour scheme stayed the same. Could you take some pictures of your BIOS and motherboard for us?

No the memory would not have been the motherboard's limiting factor because it was set to run at DDR2-533 which means it never got a chance to reach a high speed. Thanks for your email and if you have questions on how we overclock, you'll want to check out the CPU and Memory Overclocking guide .
