Summary: This is a nice motherboard. I put a used e8600 core 2 duo, 8gb of crucial memory, 1tb wd blue, sapphire radeon hd6570, syba pci-e usb 3 controller card, 650 watt psu and windows 7 home. I had everything except this and the cpu. I built it for my 7 year old grandson to play games on, and for me to record tv using an hd home run prime. everything works great. The only thing I didn't like is no i/o shield.
Summary: Very good product, fast board, with considerable good bus, accepts all 775 negatives: few pci slots, no wi-fi, and has only one entrance rj45 network, but even so I'm satisfied, I recommend to everyone.
Summary: using this board for just about 1 month, no issues thus far, hope it continue that way, had to upgrade the bios so it could recognize the cpu and memory but its running stable so far, also great shipping
Summary: Hmm this mobo has proved to be very fast and reliable. Setup was fast and easy. It supports a large range of processors and holds a good maximum ram. Very good price. Boots up fast. What do ya got to lose.
Summary: I'm on my third P5E Deluxe board in 5 months in a computer build for a friend. The first board was DOA. The second replacement board worked fine until a week ago when it stopped posting. It is now being processed as an RMA with Asus. From reading other reviews on Newegg and TigerDirect, it looks like many other users are experiencing the same problems with these boards dying inexplicably.
Summary: This board is a great buy. I bought this with a new Intel Core 2 Duo chip and they've been perfect together. I actually did all my upgrades to accommodate my purchase of a GIGABYTE GeForce 8800GT 512MB OC that supported PCI-Express 2.0. The board itself is nicely designed, with plenty of SATA slots and loads of speed and functions. Unlike the other reviewer, I've only had one of these and it's been perfect without any problems.
Summary: This is an incredible board. I bought an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 to go with it (45nm), Windows Vista Home Premium, and 2 GB OCZ 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM. The board had some freezing issues after updating to Vista SP1. Finally, after flashing the BIOS to the latest available (which I did on 5/30/08), the freezing issues are resolved and things are running smoothly, freeze free. Everything seems to run quickly and I am impressed with the build quality.
Summary: At first, I was a bit disappointed with this board because I thought it was limiting itself to what it can actually do. After a few research & hours spent on this board, I could honestly say this is an AWESOME motherboard. It's so forgiving that it will almost take any configuration you make (provided you know what you're doing) and it will work. You just have to know your limitations & work your way around components.
