4 out of 5 eggsSetup fast-n-easy

Pros: The board setup quick, everything fired up at power on and I have had no issues so far.

Cons: I was glad I read the reviews here before I set the board up, I made sure to buy a longer IDE cable and I updated the bios from a disk rather than risk using the windows updater.

Other Thoughts: once all the drivers were updated overclocking went smooth.

This is a good MB with a lot of nice features.

2 out of 5 eggs=/

Pros: Great overclocking Motherboard. PC ran flawless before board died.

Cons: Ah where to begin. Worked for 2 months then just up and died on a reboot. Wouldnt even post/boot to a bios. Everything else still works fine MB just wont work. It does show the green light on for power though =/

Other Thoughts: ANTEC 900 Gaming, mushkin 4GB DDR2 800, Intel Core 2 Duo Q6800, MSI 8800GTX ultra OC 726 Video Card. Seagate berracuda 350GB 7200, Philips 20x DVD burner,
ASUS P5k Piece of junk.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall, a good board.

Pros: Easy to get in there and overclock should you want to do it. Easy setup. No problems. No issues with board layout. It may seem like things are in weird places, but I find it works out. The IDE at the bottom is a good thing. I use a PCI IDE controller card, so ALL my IDE cables now comes out of the same area, easier to tie them down. Plenty of room around the cpu for a good sized heatsink/fan.

Cons: The built-in firewire chipset is VIA, and not Texas Instruments. I use this PC for audio (Pro Tools), and most firewire audio interfaces need or prefer TI chipsets. My old Asus A8N-SLI had a TI firewire chipset, and I wish this did too. I had to drop another 45 bucks on an SIIG firewire card with a TI chipset.

Other Thoughts: Using this board with a Q6600, Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, 4GB (2x2GB) G.Skill DDR2 800 RAM, MSI nVidia 7300LE video card, and Thermaltake 430w PSU. Everything works in harmony.

4 out of 5 eggsThe SATA RAID thing is true

Pros: If you want to build a system with dual-channel DDR2-1066, an Intel CPU with a 1066MHz or 1333MHz FSB, and the full complement of PCI slots, then this is the board for you.

Cons: It's true what they say about the SATA RAID - if you want to do it, one of your hard drives must be an external drive, and I doubt that Western Digital makes external Raptor drives. Or, if you were particularly clever, you could duct tape an internal hard drive to some other part of the computer chassis and route a SATA cable from the inside of the computer through the back to the external port. Or, if your brain was at least as functional as that of a gerbil, you could...

Other Thoughts: ...BUY A FREAKING SATA RAID CONTROLLER! Rosewill makes one for ten bucks! It's the RC-201 model. You plug the SATA drives into the controller, and the controller plugs into a PCI slot on your motherboard. Find and install the drivers. Presto. You're done. You now have a fully internal SATA RAID array. For ten dollars. Sure, those guys at Asus were probably on LSD or something when they designed this, but what did you think those PCI slots were for? Jeez.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertized

Pros: Based on other reviews, I went with this board with a Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale, and G.SKILL 4G (2x2) DDR2 800. Saved on video (EVGA 8600GT), and went with Seagates 7200.10 (got 2 at home) 250GB, using 3.0GB speed. This 100% development box flies. Fastest desktop now at work. Running Vista Business 64.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I didn't want to mess with updating bios on a new PC (have updated them many time but only after OS was previously installed), so that's why I went with this board. Everything worked out of the box - installed Lan and chipset drivers (still have to install audio drivers, but no hurry being a work box), installed new Nvidia drivers with no problem. No need to update Bios, all temp sensors working fine, CPU temp < 32C, MB temp < 38C. CPU benched at just under 2600 using Passmark's PerformanceTest 6.1. 3rd build in just over a year, went flawlessly and quick.

5 out of 5 eggswonderful

Pros: Quiet with passive cooling.
Spacious around the processor.
Easy setup of motherboard, components and Bios
Great onboard HD audio. no need for a sound card.
Good looking ;0)

Cons: Only one SATA cable.
Only one IDE but SATA is the future so... it's ok

Other Thoughts: Running Vista Ultimate on it with a Intel Core 2 E6600 cooled by EVERCOOL EC-HPFI-10025 100mm Ever Lubricate CPU Cooler, 2G of ballistix DDR2 800, GeForce 9600 GT OC version. Very good board

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great board, minimal issues, and ATI cross Fire compatability.

Cons: Had to connect the slower Sata 150mb/s drive to the Raid port for it to even recognize the drive.

Other Thoughts: Wish it had the same SLI ready memeory settings as the P5N32-E ...

4 out of 5 eggsdecent mobo, if finicky

Pros: It does most everything it should. Supports the Q6600 Quad Core processor nicely, and runs the G.Skill 2x2GB 240-pin DDR800 RAM without a problem (except see below). Processor has yet to get above 40 deg Celsius.

Cons: The mobo I received failed to detect the CPU Fan speed, but I disabled the mobo monitoring its speed and I haven't had any problem with temperature. Occasionally I got blue screen reboots on boot-up - setting the memory voltage to 1.9v fixed that (don't overvolt your memory! Check those specs!). RAIDing is only supported on a special SATA port between the PCI slots and the external SATA on the backside. I ran a cable from there into the machine so I could RAID two internals. I used the SIIG CB-SA0311-S1 cable for this purpose. Once when I booted it failed to recognize one of the RAIDed drives, so I shut down and made sure the external cable was snug. No more problems since. The 0603 BIOS I received on the board is NOT identical to the 0603 file on the Asus site. I haven't needed to flash it, fortunately.

Other Thoughts: I was told that having more than 3GB of RAM in your machine while you are updating Vista from the MS site can be a problem, so just put a 2GB stick in there until you're updated. Vista occasionally has static in sound playback, and it's related to some indexing service that occurs every 5 or 10 seconds on the disk drives (see the Resource Monitor, watch for the spikes on disk access). Upgrading from the onboard Realtek sound to a SB X-Fi card did not fix the problem, unfortunately, but I'll live with it.

3 out of 5 eggsDon't make these 2 mistakes like I did

Pros: I've been an ASUS supporter since a buddy of mine built my first rig many eons ago (though if memory serves me correctly we used an MSI board on my first custom rig). I've never had a bad board from ASUS up until now (see Cons). Overall the quality of this board is average. It's a no-frills board but I bought this board because I wanted an average board and this one delivers on average.

Cons: Originally LAN port would not work. I had put in an RMA request with Newegg thinking I had a bad board but after doing some research I found out that a USB cable connection was to blame. If your LAN port doesn't work MAKE SURE you don't have a USB cable hooked to the USB connector near your PCI slot (that's near the middle). And after fighting that frustration I sheepishly attempted to use the ASUS EZ Flash by updating my BIOS over the internet and now I have a dead board. Word to the wise...DON'T USE ASUS utilities to flash your BIOS through Windows. I found that out that the hard way.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm still an ASUS fan. They do make better boards than this but I like things to work as advertised. Had I not researched my LAN issue I would have never have found out about the USB connection. And had I researched before flashing my BIOS I would have known NOT to use ASUS utility (they even tell you on their website NOT to use it!) to update my BIOS. The biggest issue I have to say is the RMA issue. I CALLED ASUS today and got my support ticket number at which point they said they would email me my RMA number. Almost 24 hours later and no RMA. ASUS you can do better than this!
