Asus has long had a notable reputation within the overclocking community and their P5Q Deluxe motherboard builds on that reputation. Based on Intel's P45 Express and ICH10R chipsets, this ATX board is ready to host the latest LGA775 Core2 quad-core processors along with Core 2 Duo, Pentium D and Celeron CPUs.
Up to 8GB of DDR2 1066 RAM can be installed for increased performance. Get even more performance – up to 1200Mhz – through overclocking. The PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots deliver double speed and bandwidth for enhanced system performance. 100% all high-quality conductive polymer capacitors give longer life and higher energy efficiency by supplying power to vital components independently.
Get eight channels of HD sound from the Realtek ALC1200 audio chipset for pure, clear audio. Connect up to six SATA drives at 3Gb/s for high-speed data transfers as well as the option for multiple RAID configurations. Integrated Gigabit Ethernet LAN allows bottleneck-free connections to other network devices at broadband speeds and a half-dozen USB 2.0 ports allows for nearly unlimited possibilities in connecting peripheral devices.
