CrashFree BIOS 2: The driver CD has a BIOS recovery program that allows users to revert the BIOS with the CD without needing a bootable disk or an optional ROM to recover a corrupted BIOS.

ASUS offers the P5N-E with a wide variety of their specific features which I've listed for your convenience. Of note is the CPR, which means overclockers don't have to worry about clearing CMOS to reset settings in the BIOS, ASUS OC Profile, which allows you to have multiple overclocking settings set and the CrashFree BIOS 2 which gives peace of mind in case of a corrupted BIOS flash.
