The only other difference I can see betweeen the Deluxe and the pro version is the deluxe has an extra powered esata port on the rear and dual lans. I'm reallt not sure of the purpose of dual lans except its good to have an extra. You won't get better internet speed by hooking both up to a router, like I've seen said here. Also, pcie 3.0 doubles the bandwidth of pcie 2.0, so with an Ivy Bridge CPU an X8 lane is the same as an X16 lane now. Until they come out with cards that can actually max the pcie 3.0 standard, it really dosen't matter. from what I've seen, the new AMD 7000 serise cards say they are pcie 3.0 but still are not fast enough to max out a pcie 2.0 X16 lane.

I forgot about the extra eSata and Lan port since I don't use them

All the important bits like the amount of phases etc are identical between the two.

Realistically we're about two generations away from single GPU's even coming close to fully saturating PCI-E 2.0, let alone PCI-E 3.0 (x2 cards might be a different story). By the time it's a real issue I'll probably have upgraded again anyway

Either way, both Asus boards would be a good choice.

I am replacing this with a Asus P8Z68-V Pro (Gen3) + i5 2500k and 8GB Ripjaws X CAS 8 memory (yeah, I know, no imagination - but I wanted a PCIe 3.0 and Ivybridge path and it fit the bill). Bye bye P55. Hope to get a comfortable 4.5 on the new rig.

I am impressed with the Gflops I have seen from the i5 2500k, more than double what I can get, but am a little puzzled. Some of the circa 4.5 GHz i5 2500 overcclock IBT results I see posted here are 12o Gflops, while others are around 60. I find the 60s more believable as it is in line with other CPUs at the same frequency. What gives?
geneO, one thing I have noticed is that Gflops go up with the more strenuous tests. At 4.4 I get around 112 Gflops on standard and 122 Gflops if I run it on max. 118-119 on very high.

I found this and found it interesting. it lists BSOD codes from Overclocking and what they really mean. hope it is true.

First thing I noticed was he gives some specific reasons for the 0x124 bug check code. From what I've found that is kind of a generic hardware fault code which may be hardware related...or not.

I agree, Gary. But, just a guess, it may be a matter of interpretation. If you OC the CPU without enough Vcore, the CPU faults but the OS interprets that as a hardware failure.

Also, thanks to Britton30, a link to a new ram from G Skill for high performance and low profile. Aries

True if a BSOD is self inflicted it would be a good place to start. Not that we've ever done that....
