    Diff between P5K Deluxe/WiFi & P5KE-WiFi?

    Hi all

    Just about to pull the triger on my 1st P5K board (and a Q6600) and can't for the life of me understand why the P5KE is around $100 cheaper for only having 1 x RJ45 port.

    Hoping someone might have some knowledge, esp as to the overclockability of the P5KE version, as if that's the only difference (aside of 2 x less SATA cables and some Software), then I'm in!

    Asus comparison is here... http://www.asus.co.nz/products_compa...1646,1655&l1=3

    Thanks

    The E version, doesnt have the top mosftet heatsink, and no cooling pipe for the South Bridge. And i think its only 5 phase power, vs 8phase.

    Thanks for that... I am picking the 5-phase power would be the biggest concern with overclocking stability, so will most likely go with the Deluxe, which I have found around only NZ$75 dearer than the E anyway.
