This review is from: ASUS P5Q-EM LGA 775 Intel G45 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Great board for the money. Very flexible with TONS of connections. Onboard HDMI with digital audio support. Seems very stable.
Putting ANYTHING into the PCIe x16 slot WILL DISABLE the DVI and HDMI. This INCLUDES a riser for a slim case. Avoid this board if you are planning on building a slim media center. or pick your case VERY carefully. This is the first time that I've been let down by an Asus board. Now I have a great media center with no tuner. Yes, even an Asus PCIe tuner in the x16 slot will disable the DVI and HDMI.
a different case would solve my problem, but I don't want a different one. Maybe Asus will release a BIOS update to correct this major oversight.
