Intel’s Socket T supports LGA775 based processors including the new Quad-core, and the DIMM slots will support up to 8GB of DDR2-800 memory for maximum gaming power. The 3, yes that’s right 3, PCI-E x16 slots will support 2 GPU cards at x16 and a physics card at x8 speeds.

There is one ATA133 header and 6 SATAII headers for drive connectivity. Four back panel and 6 headers give you up to 10 USB 2.0 ports and there are up to 2 FireWire ports (1 back panel and 1 header). Two gigabit LAN connectors provide maximum network access.

The SupremeFX audio system is an 8 channel setup that has jack sensing for 2, 4, 6 or 8 channel speaker systems. Also included is the DTS Connect feature which converts your stereo or multi-channel audio into a DTS audio signal and sends it out to any DTS enabled system and can also convert your standard stereo audio into a multi-channel experience through the computer’s speaker system.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Board

Pros: Easy BIOS
Easy to debug issues
Easy overclocking
Just enough IO
Low price point

Cons: After 3 years one of the memory slots went bad. But all in all that is to be expected of main board at this cost that is ran 8 hours a day for 3 years.

Other Thoughts: Solid board for a good price point.

4 out of 5 eggsMediocre MOBO

Pros: Booted up flawlessly. Had no problems with old bios and had no problems flashing it to the new bios. Very nice overclocking capabilities. Very good motherboard layout.

Cons: The northbridge runs very hot. Make sure your case has good cooling. It's very picky on the ram you use.

Other Thoughts: Becarefull of the ram you use. The ASUS technical support, well I meant "lack of technical support" is fantastic. Both memory configurators state I can use Crucial Ballistix tracer 1066mhz ram and you can but it will only run at default 800 mhz. I have tried to set the memory to run at 1066 but the PC will not boot and when it does boot it freezes up. So just becarefull of the ram you use.

1 out of 5 eggsUnlucky?

Pros: 32x SLI, PCI-E Sound Card, Room for large aftermarket heatsink...

Cons: Not many cons, but major ones. This board destroys memory! I don't want to scare anyone, it's unlikely that all of these boards do this, but mine does. I've gone through 3 brands and 6gigs of memory trying to get my system stable. I'm not sure what the actual issue is, but after about 2 weeks running this board non-stop, memory errors start to appear. This turns into BSODs and random restarts. Memtest86 shows 935 errors on my Crucial memory, 56 errors on my Corsair, and 12 on my OCZ each of the brands running for less time than the previous which implies the board destroys memory over time.

Other Thoughts: I am a system builder, I know boards, I know memory. I've done as much troubleshooting as I'm willing to do because each time it becomes more costly. Unfortunately there are no refunds for mobos so I will eat the cost and go with a different brand. Sorry Asus, your memory issues recently are unacceptable. I will not buy Asus as a default brand any longer.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent mobo! I just installed Ubuntu 7.10 64bit, and everything works great! I had another brand motherboard which has JMicron SATA drivers (not supported in Ubuntu). I'm sure an IDE HDD would work, but I have all SATAs. ASUS to the rescue. The nVidia nForce 680i chipset works great for Linux installations. Rock on ASUS!!

Cons: There is a sticker warning about RAM compatibility on the box, but the Newegg Memory Configurator assured me that my OCZ Platinum DDR2 sticks would work. They do!

5 out of 5 eggsASUS P5N32-E

Pros: My first home built computer, so I wanted a no hassle brand that would be easy to set up and use. This board was it for me. Easy to put together, good instructions and soft ware.
Have not tried over clocking yet, that would be a gee wizz kinda thing right now as my processor (Intel Q6600) and video card (8800 GTS 512) easily handle every thing I play and do.

Cons: The supreme FX audio sound card slot takes up one of the 7 possible expansion positions at the back of the computer. Not a big problem usually, except this PCI-e x1 slot is mounted back wards and closer to the edge of the mother board the standard PCI-e x1 slots. So if you wanted to ever upgrade to a better sound card, you must use the other PCI-e x1 slot if it is not already in use.
Other then that little quibble I have no problems with this board.

Other Thoughts: Could not mount a Zalman 9500A cooling fan on the processor, because the mother board's transistors prevent the locking tabs from clicking in.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: Install was very simple. Front panel connectors were easy, and the SLI bridge is floppy, which is perfect for people who have a wide card in the 3rd PCIe slot. Very fast.

Cons: Sound card cannot output true 5.1 sound in many games (including Source games), no front panel mic connection
