3 out of 5 eggs Mostly Great 10/17/2008

This review is from: ASUS P5Q-EM LGA 775 Intel G45 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Great board for the money. Very flexible with TONS of connections. Onboard HDMI with digital audio support. Seems very stable.

Cons:

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.

Other Thoughts:

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.
