As we all known, Asus motherboards are usually good overclockers and Nvidia based motherboards offer enough BIOS options to perform overclocking. So let's see how well this motherboard can overclock. At first we kept the CPU multiplier locked at 9x and we pushed the FSB to see how high we could go. Our best efforts were "stuck" at 340MHz FSB. Not bad considering that the Southbridge chipset has no cooling system installed.
Next step was to find how high an FSB we could get with the Asus P5N-E SLI. Without making any changes and leaving all voltages at auto mode, we managed to get a 100% stable system at 450FSB and memory running 1:1.
We can say that for a €99 product, the performance was very good. Of course, this is not the highest FSB you can get, but nevertheless good enough for good overclocking. The EVGA 680i LT offers more overclocking capabilities, but also costs a lot more...
