This review is from: ASUS P5Q3 DELUXE/WIFI-AP CH1-11 LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
Has tons of overclocking options. The BIOS has options to turn off the things you don't need. Updating the BIOS is cake and there are several ways to do it. Has been running overclocked and stable since I assembled it. Runs XP Pro and Vista 64 with no problems. Has 6 SATA connectors, a PATA connector and a floppy connector. Will work with ATI crossfire though I only use a single nvidia card. Has plenty of software to overclock from windows instead of going into the BIOS. Has a built in operating system to browse the web or chat with. Supports several different model INTEL cpu's.
none so far
It wouldn't post when I first put it together. I had no idea why and was extremely troubled. My case doesn't have a speaker so I couldn't listen for error beeps to determine the cause. I didn't check the qvl when I bought memory and thought that was the problem. I ordered memory from the qvl list and reassembled the computer and it worked and has been working ever since. Later I stuck the memory that I first bought back in and it worked. So apparently I didn't do something correctly when I first assembled the computer. Here is the memory that works incredibly well with this board, Crucial BL2KIT12864BA1608. I have the memory and FSB overclocked to 1600 and the CPU clocked to 3.6 from 3.0 with no problems at all and this computer is on constantly. There is a setting built into that memory (XMP) you can select in the BIOS and the FSB and CPU will be set to those speeds. The first memory I bought doesn't have a setting like that for it that shows up in the BIOS.
