Summary: Contrary to the extremely negative review, this has been the best board I have ever had. I believe most problems people have are from incompatible memory which will work for a while then will die, randomly giving BSOD, eventually failing to boot all together.
Summary: Amazing Board - YES, YES, YES....... Great layout I love the I/O shield - No more cut up fingers Plenty of connections + Fan connections Phase power Excellent NB heat sink Awesome Bios Mushkin memory loves this board (Big plus for me) Lots of software Asus quality The list goes on and on...
Summary: First do yourself a favorite and don't pay attention to negative reviews. Some people don't know how to configure Bios and Hardware and complaint about the board. This is a great quality board!!! Mine came with the latest BIOS installed 2201 , so no flashing needed.
Summary: Compared to some of the other reviews, count me a lucky 13. ASUS boards have always rocked for me and this is no different. A Q9550 CPU, 8gig 1066 Memory, & 9800GTX+ Vid card, SB Audigy, PCI-E SATA II controller, & several terabyte drives filling all available SATA ports (but see below) and Linux...
Summary: POOR PRODUCT: This instable motherboard was incapable to turn off the CPU fan when the PC was completly off. Additionaly, this board took the PSU out which has to be replaced. MEDIOCRE ASUS SUPPORT: Their support representatives barely read the failure description and fake to answer.
Summary: Prior to buying this item I strongly urge you to read the current reviews on this motherboard. Particularly ASUS' own Forums. While some of the other P5Q series seem to be ok, the P5Q Deluxe has many reviews about how unstable it is. My own experience was as bad as it gets.
Summary: Here's what you've been looking for a long time. Accepts just about any 775 cpu,DDR2 memory,x16 PCIe graphics,overclocking software and a great bios set up (for those who know how to use it) to manually adjust output performance.
Summary: This board was disappointing. I prefer Asus boards and this board with it's Intel Q9550 processor, dual Raptors in a raid 0, config, 8 GB of RAM, Windows XP x64 is an oinker compared the Asus A8N Sli Deluxe with AMD 4400, 4 GB, dual Raptors that it replaced.
Summary: I purchased the Asus P5Q-Deluxe from Amazon and could not be happier. Ar first they had it listed as the P5Q3 Deluxe but anyone with a little common sense would have known the price was too low for that board. I used the Amazon chat service and they confirmed there was a typo.
Summary: Amazon.com have advertised this MB as the P5Q3 deluxe, when in fact it just is not. Through many suppliers, they are supplying the P5Q deluxe. They have a responsibility to compensate the many customers they have inconvenienced, including me (twice now).
