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. I had a horrible time with crucial ballistic memory (even though it was supposed to be compatible) got rid of it, been rock solid since.
Summary: I bought this to build a desktop that overclocks well. This was my first high end board and I was impressed. Very stable and runs cool. Lots of bios options. Little touches like a padded I/O shield seem trivial at first but end up being really nice details. I was able to overclock the same processor much higher than a previous board I tried. It can overclock a 2.8GHz Quad core to 3.8GHz. Getting 1GHz extra is nice.
Summary: Great product. lots of ports and heat sinks. Room to expand. Works well with my quad core and 8GB OCZ ram. I was looking for something that I could grow into if needed and this definitely fits the bill. Lots of bios options as well. It is definitely something that I would purchase again or for a client give the chance.
Summary: I got this motherboard to upgrade my home computer from Windows XP to Windows 7. This board has proved to be excellent. I have been using ASUS board for a long time and they have always proven to be very realiable.
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... Unlike others who have purchased this board, it worked great for me. I've had 0 problems.
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. The ASUS P5Q Deluxe is one great board. As usual ASUS has kept up the pride and Quality of there products. Many features with this board. I installed a Q9550 and WENT TO 3.60 GHz with just a few BIOS changes.
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 flies high without issue. (Initial testing with Windows had everything working, including some stuff [like onboard sound] I don't use with Linux.
Summary: This rock solid stable 775 socket motherboard overclocks very well right out of the box without changing the BIOS. I have nothing bad to say about this excellent motherboard. The SSD Express web browser feature is useful if you don't want to boot into the OS although you will have to hunt for the latest unofficial SSD browser updates. I bought an ASUS motherboard because of bad luck with 2 identical Biostar motherboards from Newegg.
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. This is rated as good as the Maximus Formula II (P45) and sells for a lot less.
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. I ordered the P5Q-Deluxe and it arrived in 3 days with free shipping!
