  • Pros: Outstanding motherboard, easy to update BIOS.
  • Cons: After over 5 years of owning the board, the BIOS will reset after turning the machine off and either unplugging the power, turning off the PSU or turning off the power to the whole room. Slightly annoying but board works well otherwise.

Great board while it lasted

Robert L., Newegg
15 February 2015
  • Pros: I picked up this board in mid 2008 and it served as my workhorse from then until this past fall, seeing all manner of CPU, GPU, RAM, and hard drive/SSD upgrades. Strong board, good BIOS, and easy to tweak overclock settings with.
  • Cons: The board decided to stop working reliably one day. I cycled power and did all the usual stuff but was rewarded with a popping noise and some smoke. I sent the board to a friend to see if it was my CPU or the board as I had no extra parts to test either with. When he tried to power it on, the boa...

Decent board

Eric G., Newegg
15 November 2013
  • Summary: Got in 08 and still running fine.
  • Pros: Another decent item. It was a good bang for buck board at the time with my q6600 CPU. Overclocked on it fine and had no issues with the board itself.
  • Cons: None

Solid Board

William J., Newegg
5 May 2012
  • Summary: All in all this was a good purchase and a solid board. For the price it was an excellent board in my opinion.
  • Pros: I have had this board since January 2009 and I've had zero problems with it. It has plenty of options to take care of what I needed. It was one of the easier boards that I've installed in a new build.
  • Cons: Only issues I've had have been with the audio. I had issues with sound going in and out and changing devices randomly but that ended up being a common problem with Realtek drivers so no egg loss for that.

Hard Drive Killer

Daniel L., Newegg
25 April 2012
  • Summary: The key to any system is data integrity. But to have multiple hard drive failures is unacceptable.
  • Pros: System has lots of features, and is configurable. It worked well for some time.
  • Cons: Despite the success over a year of ownership, it began to corrupt data and destroy hard drives.

~~Great Buy~~

Nicholas G., Newegg
14 November 2011
  • Summary: P5Q-PRO Motherboard Q6600 Intel Quad Core G0 Stepping overclocked to 3.0 4GB Kingston HyperX 1066 KHX8500D2K2/2GR GeForce GTX 280 Lian-Li Case DVDR/W Dell 23" LCD
  • Pros: I absolutely love this board. I have had it for many years now. There has been little to no drop in voltages over the years. This system just runs. It has run 24/7 for longer than I can think. I've been running that way since Sept 2008. so over 3 years. Good overclocker. Good solid board all arou...
  • Cons: slow to start up? don't know why, but when it's off, which isn't often, it takes like 10 seconds for bios to start it's posting process... don't know what that's all about, never affected me though, because I ran this box 24/7 so never really did anything but move the mouse to make it snap back t...

  • Pros: Pretty good, will overclock to 475fsb on my e8500.
  • Cons: 475fsb is max stable, tried upping the voltage but no go without getting ridiculous.

Solid board

Jason T., Newegg
21 August 2009
  • Pros: Solid board. No problems running Core 2 Duo E8400 OC to 3.6 GHz. I like the OC profile portion of the BIOS. This allows you to save a couple of different OC profiles into the BIOS that you can recall if you make a mistake or if all the BIOS options reset while you're tweaking things.
  • Cons: The OC options are pretty good, but probably wouldn't make a champion OC'er happy.
