3 out of 5 eggsWorked great until AsusUpdate failed

Pros: Worked perfectly for 4 years.

Cons: Updating BIOS is dicey.

Other Thoughts: HD issues lead me to try to update the BIOS using the AsusUpdate windows software from the Asus support site. Failed on flashing, and bricked the whole mess. Now the system just powers up fans and shuts down over and over. DO NOT TRY TO UPDATE THE BIOS USING ASUSUPDATE!!
If I hadn't been so lazy and done it with a floppy it'd probably still be running :/

5 out of 5 eggsStarTrek Technology

Pros: As stated in a video review (by whom I cant remember) This board is like something straight out of the bridge from startrek...

Seriously - who builds a desktop mobo w/ Built in Wi-Fi??? (and its decent Wi-Fi)

As far as quality this board is excellent - the MASSIVE heat pipes your seeing in the pictures are entierly for real and do a great job (currently running my q6600 at 3.0ghz w/ its stock fan- @ 34-40 C idle - no more than 54 w/ a load...) I was going to go w/ liquid cooling but at this rate the board's builtin heat pipes/sink does a great job...

On top of being a literally cool board - you can use ddr3 on it... I currently have 4gigs of patriot extreme performance ddr3 (1333mhz) ddr3 installed which (although some people seem to think it makes no difference using ddr3 as opposed to dd2) screams... very fast ram and only at the allowance of this board.(again more star trek technology..)

It has two pci-e x16 slots - apparently though im out of characters..this is a great

Cons: THe first one that newegg shipped me was DOA. This however is expected when your dealing with thousands of these boards that all are made up of thousands of things that can go wrong.... it should be expected.

Other Thoughts: Newegg was my saviour on this though - I had to have this mobo for my computer that I was building for my senior project - when i realize it was a dead board i called them and they next day'ed a new one too me for free... just in time to make the presentation that evening... (Ironically the first time i booted it up was at the presentation... I was scared sh*tless that something was going to go wrong. funny story really lol)

THANK YOU NEWEGG!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: The board is solid and well crafted. I liked the manual. Everything about the BIOS, built-in HW options, heat sink conduit fans for chips that get hot near the CPU, say PLEASE over clock me! The auto instal of drivers in Vista went smoothly, even through the automatic reboots. I had a series of reboots initially when I put it in the case and found out from Asus tech support that it was the mounting bolts. I called 2 other times. All three calls had me on the phone with a live Asus tech within 1-2 minutes. Even when they escalated me, it took less than 1/2 a minute to switch me over to a live person. This is about my 30th build of a custom computer. I really liked the 6 SATA 3.0 GB slots, the 6 built-in USB with board plug-ins for 4 more, 4 memory slots configurable for dual channel or not, 4 chasis fan plug-ins.

Cons: Came with two 1gb ASUS 1333 DDR3 in the box! not sure if that is standard. I bought it from someone else other than newegg. I had unknowingly bought 2 1bg corsair DDR3 memory cards. Now have 4 gig, except that Vista shows memory as 3326 mb and not 4 gig. one reviewer wrote that they saw 3gb so they were not fully truthful. Well, the bios shows 4gig so I know I put them in right. I guess one does really need to consider 2gb memory cards. I don't mind all that much as the first 2gb were included anyway.

Other Thoughts: I was happy ordering this motherboard but after reading more and more reviews I was getting terrible buyers remorse. I truly thought I had done my homework in getting a board that met my needs for the right price. After getting it up and running and reading hundreds of reviews on other boards, I really think that I made the right choice despite the CONs I found and read from others. I'm not willing to spend another $1000 to get the best. I believe the rig I've made is at about a 8.5 of 10 for what $1000 more could have got me. I'm a server, network, technology infrastructure IT Director and I do DVD video creations, play high end games. I'm happy with this.

3 out of 5 eggsNot a huge fan of this motherboard

Pros: It's got a lot of cool features. I like the fact that it has two NICs. Some people may consider the wifi to be a good feature.

Cons: My 8800 GTS blocks three of the six SATA connections. They include 'L' shaped SATA cables, but those cables block two of the other connectors, so I'm stuck with four connectors for five SATA drives. The included software is poorly designed and buggy. I've had numerous times where all of Asus' download servers are full and I cannot download drivers/patches/etc. That's pretty ridiculous for a modern-day technology company.

Other Thoughts: DDR3 is a pain in the neck to stabilize. Especially, it would seem, when running Vista x64. In retrospect I wish I had purchased a DDR2 Intel board instead.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: This is a great midrange motherboard. If you are looking to build either a gaming system or general purpose system, this motherboard will suffice and give you some added features.

Cons: The eSATA does not work. I have searched and found no help, even the solution recommened by an earlier commenter.. getting the drivers from Jmicron site just doesnt work (and yes they are the correct drivers).

ASUS really really messed up here; other than that its a solid board. I am very miffed since I purchased this to use my external SATA drives with.

Other Thoughts: If anyone else has any ideas or fixes please let me know. You can email me at cupycake@mail.com

All help & links are greatly appreciated.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible board

Pros: None that I can think of.

Cons: I have been building PC's for family and friends for more than a decade. I have used many different boards in the past, after awhile I stuck with the Gigabyte boards because they just normally work without issue.

Well I decided to get an ASUS board this time for my new machine.

What a mistake. This is the worst board I have ever owned. From the start this board has had nothing but problems. First it was the 1333 ram had to be only two different vendors. Finally a new bios upgrade came out to make it work correctly with the other vendors. Next if you upgrade the bios when other problems exist "IDE issues" etc... the motherboard locks up and you need to go through a whole process of tearing the system apart and clearing the Cmos.

What a joke.

Expensive board, horrible results.

Back to Gigabyte.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent features for the price and age of the board. DDR3. ASUS makes good stuff.

Cons: WiFi is only wireless-b and not at least wireless-g. No PCIe 2.0, but the board is a little older.

Other Thoughts: After solving a CPU/HSF seating problem that caused the board to shut down after a few seconds, I flashed the BIOS with a thumb drive with no problem. The board recognized both sticks of 1 GB OCZ Gold DDR3 1066 memory. Q6600 quad core was recognized immediately as well. The motherboard is an excellent buy for the money. I have not tried any overclocking-yet.

4 out of 5 eggsP5k3 Deluxe Wifi

Pros: Great Board Runs my q6600 2.4ghz at 3.35ghz 372x9 with some voltage mods. Runs all corsairs XMS3 1333 Memory and DHX series. Updated a bois for first time and was a BREEEEEZE! I dont know about other people but the cheesy looking wifi antenna improved my signal 500%

Cons: Not the Greatest Overclocker but 9/10! Asus Overclock program locks computer, System like to reboot at and FSBx higher than 372x9 with q6600 even with 1600mhz rated memory

Other Thoughts: Visiontek 3870
q6600 @ 3.35ghz
corsair XMS3 1333

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board!

Pros: This is a solid board at a good price. It runs DDR3 1333 Mhz and supports all the big boy processors out there. For the price you can't beat this! It easily matches up with much more expensive boards for a third of the cost. Overclocking is a breeze with this board.

Cons: Bios didn't recognize my processor initially but it was a quick fix. Built in Wi-fi card and program leave much to be desired! You might as well move your computer right next to the router. I had to buy another PCI card adapter to get internet and Vista runs that just fine without the added Wi-Fi program. Overclocking utility consistently locks the computer up. You're better off using the Bios for that.

Other Thoughts: Running a Q9450 at 3.6 Ghz along side of DDR3 1333 RAM on this board. Nice!
