4 out of 5 eggsGood after initial BIOS issue

Pros: Quite stable, good selection of drivers (e.g. for Vista 64-bit), good value for the money. Includes ICH10R so you get latest and best storage features. Displayport is nice, but hasn't yet caught on. Can get some decent overclocks (3.64GHz on my E5200 R0).

Cons: BIOS it shipped with (408) wouldn't support E5200 R0 stepping. Would post and install windows, but with corruption. Updating to 503 BIOS fixed everything and works like a charm now. Overclocking is good, but without more RAM ratio options you're limited. Can set RAM timings though. No Windows 7 drivers yet and some like the VIA audio driver just won't work right until Windows 7 x64, so you'll need to wait until there are some Win7 drivers to have everything working properly. ExpressGate doesn't work with AHCI mode. Windows-based overclocking tool doesn't work with E5200 R0 at this point.

Other Thoughts: If you have a modern hard drive with native command queuing (NCQ), be sure to set the SATA mode to AHCI in the BIOS before installing your OS (may require a driver disk for XP). If you leave it in IDE mode then you lose out on NCQ and other features and it's a pain to change after you've installed the OS.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Board

Pros: Nice looking board, usual ASUS quality, easy installation.

Cons: Not much in the way of overclocking options/ram dividers.

Other Thoughts: Using with E5200, can get it to 3.3 Ghz on stock voltage with this board, but the limited ram dividers and lack of control over them make it difficult.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well enough....

Pros: Great BIOS feature, I didn't get to test the onboard graphics since I use a 7600GS, so I can't comment on that.

Cons: Not all solid capacitors. Northbridge gets slightly hot after a while. I switched off the ASUS quick bootup feature since that was pretty much useless...

Other Thoughts: A great micro ATX board

4 out of 5 eggsgood value

Pros: simple, small, like the dual video out. Great for commercial applications. Runs fine with 400W Rosewill PSU in stock case.

Cons: not a LGA775 fan, because of the heat sink/fan click-lock technology. It's inferior to AMD clampdown function. Too easy to strip those plastic twist grommets.

Other Thoughts: put 2 of these together in base units for a buddy's business. Smooth-as-silk install/config.

3 out of 5 eggs...meh

Pros: The product does what I need it to do. Manual was fairly easy for me to understand. System booted up easily once I got everything figured out.

Cons: Pins for power switch connecter in center bottom of board. The serial port connecter looked awfully familiar to the power switch pins on my old board (took me awhile to figure that out). Only 1 IDE connector. This would not be overlooked by a more experienced user, but I had to buy a new hard drive to accommodate.

Other Thoughts: I called ASUS tech support when my system powered up with no display. I was on hold for 10 minutes before someone picked up. They proceeded to take my telephone number, saying they would call back. Still waiting for that call, though I fixed the problem myself.

5 out of 5 eggsBang for the buck

Pros: Six SATA/300 ports.

Six USB ports on the back I/Os plus headers for six more on the motherboard (requires additional parts).

Still has limited support for older components: one IDE channel, 2 PCI slots, and headers on the board for serial+parallel (these require additional parts).

The ASUS BIOS has a built-in BIOS update program that can save your existing BIOS to, and flash the BIOS from, a USB memory stick (supports FAT format, not NTFS or Linux/BSD formats).

ICH10 provides fast I/O performance writing to the SATA drives.

Good price and of course Newegg service ROCKS.

Cons: Scary flexing sounds when installing the infamous Intel push-pin heatsink. All LGA775 boards could use some reinforcement here.

Onboard DVI port does not have the extra holes to use a DVI-I dual link cable, you'll have to use a DVI-D cable instead. Single or dual link DVI-D works, as long as it is DVI-D.

The location of the serial and parallel port headers puts in the upper-right corner of the board, is farthest away from any extra slots on the back of your case. Not a big problem for me, as I don't have a need for these ports.

Other Thoughts: This board uses the AMI BIOS, I haven't bought a new ASUS board in nearly seven years so this might be standard on all ASUS boards now.

P5QL-CM, E7400 Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz, 2 GB 800MHz DDR2 RAM, 4xWD1001FALS 1TB Caviar Black drives, Intel Pro1000/GT PCI NIC. I didn't test the compatibility of the onboard gigabit NIC with FreeBSD and already had the Intel card.

There is no troubleshooting guide in the manual to explain why the board is beeping at startup (it was my fault, had disabled on-board video while using a PCIe card, then later removed the card w/o re-enabling on-board video).

Used this board to build a FreeNAS box. Prior to setting up a software Raid5 array, I was able to write simultaneously to four SATA drives at ~100MB/sec each using "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/adX" (block size set to 1MB, the actual command line switch is filtered) to zero the four drives. (NOTE: USE OF THE "dd" COMMAND WILL WIPE OUT ALL DATA ON YOUR DRIVE, DO NOT USE IT UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DO
