Asus P5K Motherboard
Introducing our new Asus P5K Bearlake Socket 775 Motherboard with Asus’ exclusive Super Memspeed Technology. This innovative technology will enhance your system memory speed up to 75-percent! The high-performance PK5 platform creates dynamic graphics and multimedia entertainment for Intel LGA775 processors (please see complete processor compatibility list below). It’s compatible with Intel 05B/05A/06, and next generation 45nm multi-core processors at 1333/1066/800 FSB. The Asus P5K supports DDR2 1066/800/667 MHz memory up to 8GB, PCI-E x16/1, SATA 3.0 Gb/s (RAID 0,1 and JBOD), PCI Gb LAN featuring Al NET2, 8-channel high-def audio, 12 USB 2.0 ports, IEEE 1394a, and ASUS Al Lifestyle features, ASUS crystal sound, and ASUS EZ DIY. This outstanding ATX mainboard comes with drivers, ASUS PC Probe II, ASUS Update, and ASUS Al Suite.

Surpass the Limit with Easy Overclocking Automatically
To attain top performance, ASUS has managed to break through current FSB and DRAM ratio proportions by utilizing Super Memspeed Technology - the latest technology that provides even more precise overclocking options to unleash the true potential of DDR2 memory. Native DDR2 1066 maximizes system performance by eliminating the bottleneck when overclocking both the CPU and memory - providing great performance for 3D graphics and other memory demanding applications.

LGA775 Intel® Quad-core Processor Ready
This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Quad-core processors in LGA775 package. It also can support Intel® next generation 45nm Multi-Core CPU. It´s excellent for multi-tasking, multi-media and enthusiastic gamers with 1333 / 1066/800 MHz FSB. Intel® Quad-core is one of the most powerful CPU in the world.
Intel® P35 Chipset
The Intel® P35 Express Chipset is the latest chipset designed to support the next generation 45nm CPU; and up to 8GB of dual-channel DDR2 800/667 MHz memory architecture. It also supports 1333/1066/800 FSB (Front Side Bus), PCI Express x16 graphics and multi-core CPUs.
ATI CrossFire Technology
ATI´s CrossFire boosts image quality along with rendering speed, eliminating the need to scale down screen resolutions to get the high image quality you want. CrossFire ignites with the higher antialiasing, anisotropic filtering, shading, and texture settings you desire. Adjust your display configurations, experiment with your advanced 3D settings, and check the effect with a real-time 3D-rendered preview within ATI´s Catalyst™ Control Center to rule your CrossFire system.

A Closer Look

This motherboard features a Socket 775
design. The Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) style socket makes it easy to install and upgrade your processor.

The P5K motherboard is based on the Intel P35 Northbridge chipset and the INtel ICH9 Southbridge chipset. It supports Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Extreme, Pentium D and Pentium 4 LGA775 Processors (compatible with Intel 05B/05A/06), with Hyper-Threading Technology, 800/1066/1333MHz Front Side Bus & 45nm multi-core CPU support.

Memory Expansion
The P5K provides 4 DIMM sockets using Dual Channel 240-pin DDR2 with a total capacity of up to 8GB-64 bit (4GB-32bit). You can install DDR2 667/800/1066MHz Memory. (Tuned by ASUS Super Memspeed Technology, this motherboard natively supports up to DDR2 1066MHz)

PCI Express Support
The P5K fully supports PCI Express, the latest I/O interconnect technology that speeds up the PCI bus. PCI Express features point-to-point serial interconnections between devices and allows higher clockspeeds by carrying data in packets. This high-speed interface is software compatible with existing PCI specifications.

The P5K includes built in IDE facilities that support Ultra ATA 133.
The P5K comes with an Realtek ALC883 HD audio codec which supports high quality 8-channel audio.

Serial ATA RAID Support
The P5K supports the Serial ATA II technology through the Serial ATA interfaces. Doubles bus bandwidth which provides blazingly high disk performance, up to 3.0Gb/s, with RAID 0, 1 and JBOD solutions
