PNY XLR8 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model D22GX64XL-5

Pros: Reasonable price point for stable performance. After three straight days of Prime95 and Folding@home testing I have yet to get a error.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: The heat spreader makes the memory modules a bit tall, it might be a problem if the memory modules have to be installed behind a drive bay on a larger motherboard.

Pros: It's got the back brace that the heat sink screws into. The 95mm fan is quite while still providing good air flow.

Cons: Pre applied paste. Be careful not to put your fingers there by mistake or you'll need to go get new paste from a store if you haven't already.

ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great bios options, handy software that comes with it to monitor temps and voltage. Great bang for the buck.

Cons: I had a difficult time getting the Windows XP and Windows Vista installation setup to detect the installed SATA and PATA hard drives. If you don't slipstream in the latest chipset and SATA drivers setup will not properly detect the hard drive size and caps off at 128GB. Use your old machine first to put all the drivers on a disc before attempting to install Windows on a machine with this motherboard.

If you have two 2 slot graphics cards you will not be able to use the PCIe 1x slots at all.

Other Thoughts: I'm using the latest drivers from nVidia's site as of May 31st 2008 and so far I have had no video artifacts or problems with the motherboard. It is interesting to note that nVidia detected the chipset as a 650i instead of a 750i on their website.
