Quoted from Asus P5B-E Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Asus P5B-E reviews & previews
"The ASUS P5B-E is a very good motherboard. While not having all those extra bells and whistles you find on ASUS high-end motherboard it still manages to perform very well. I would in fact go so far to say that unless you know you need all those extra features like an extra Gigabit LAN-port or an extra 16xPCI-E slot you might as well look closer on this motherboard. The same goes for the bundle. While ASUS is shipping some kick-ass bundles for its high-end motherboards, unless you really use the extra stuff it is just as easy to live without it."
"...I feel that I have no choice other than to award the "Overclockers Award" for the second motherboard review in a row. If I had much better cooling available, I have no doubt that I could have gotten 480MHz x 8 running... perhaps even 505MHz x 8 - so given that this motherboard is an excellent platform for FSB based overclocks, I just have to give it the award :)
Frankly, the best match for this board may be the low end E6300 processor - it is limited to a 7x multiplier, but we've seen that this board can reach stratospheric FSB speeds; so I have little doubt an E6300 could reach 3.5GHz on it with excellent cooling."
"The board overclocks like stink. I have almost no doubt that some tweaking has gone on to loosen the timings somewhere and gain some extra MHz in the overclocking stakes. This shows where the board suffers in the bandwidth and hard disk benchmarks, but thrives when overclocked. Couple this with a decent bundle for the price and some nifty features, the board is a winner."
"The Asus P5B-E motherboard did well in the overclocking tests and we were able to take it from a standard 266 MHz FSB all the way up to 406 MHz FSB! That's definitely a very sweet overclock! Asus has put together a very solid Intel P965 Express motherboard together in its P5B-E. It's not a perfect motherboard, but then again it does offer some pretty good value. If you've been looking to upgrade, now is a perfect time and the Asus P5B-E motherboard is not a bad choice."
