Great but not for amateurs

hmankoo, Ebay
14 April 2012
  • Summary: This is a great motherboard with great performance. I got one to replace a faulty hp motherboard. Apparently, it has got a lot of flaws too. It is not that easy to setup but it has got quite some cool utilities.

Works great so far

Power Tool Marine, Amazon
5 June 2010
  • Summary: Got this up and operating easily, right out of the box. As stated, there is no video output. Not a problem for me, as I have a 1Gb Raedon 4870. BIOS is great for overclocking. Lots of voltage adjustments. I easily attained 2.70 Ghtz on a 2.40 Ghtz Core 2 Quad with a +1 deg C rise in CPU temp. Stable. I am still working on getting sound as there are 7.1 outputs. I will probably look for a card anyway. So far, very happy. Shipping was very fast.

Underrated mobo

M. Deale, Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: To the best of my knowledge this is the ONLY mobo that uses the Intel ICH10 "DO" chipset. If not the only mobo then it is certainly the least expensive. What's so important about "DO"? Your 3 drive RAID 5 setup cannot easily be expanded unless you have the "DO" chipset, with it's online capacity expansion. Installing Win7/RC was easy, but the ASUS support for the RC is awful. Can't blame them really, but be aware. RAID 5 array was created on another computer.

ASUS P5Q

WmG.Spokes, Rate it all!
1 May 2009
  • Summary: I used this motherboard to build a newer ,faster computer. I wanted a computer dedicated to LINUX. Well the ASUS P5Q worked just fine, but the install disk, provided by ASUS is only good for Windows. You can't run it under LINUX. I need to get on the net to get updates, not there yet. I gave it a 4 star rating only because ASUS disk was no help to me, but LINUX did not need it to get the system up and running.

ASUS P5Q

R.Ricsin, Rate it all!

  • Summary: Asus makes good motherboards. I was able to overclock my x3350 (similar to q9450) quad core from 2.66 ghz to 3.44 ghz with no problem. With some research I was able to tweak some settings for better performance and less heat. FYI, if you are running stock speed, set the voltages to one step above the minimum. I have read that Asus boards tend to put a bit more voltage at auto and first settings for some weird reason.

  • Excerpt: Никогда не экономьте на материнских платах!
  • Pros: Драйвера стабильны. Всё есть, и всё работает. Неплохо разгоняется.
  • Cons: 1. Перегревается северный мост, пришлось поставить хороший радиатор за 1000р. 2. RAID не стабилен, бывает завешивает систему. 3. Неудачное расположение PCI-E 1x 4. Отсутствие EFI

Attention au controleur IDE foireux

ultrahardcore, Ciao
18 September 2011
  • Summary: 2 ans apres achat : assez satisfait La P5Q marche tres bien avec un Q6600 @ 3 GHz, 9600 GT et 4 gigas RAM. Le BIOS est tres complet et permet plein de reglages (beaucoup de fonctions restés sur AUTO). Sinon, la carte mere ne chauffe pas trop dans un boitier peu ventilé (40°C). Avec le CD de XP SP3 fait maison, il s'est installé sans probleme sur le disque dur WD Veloci Raptor 150 vieux de 2 ans Comme l'Express Gate et le controleur IDE Marvell ne servent pas, je les ai...
  • Pros: stabilité, robustesse
  • Cons: prix un peu élevé, controleur IDE buggué, overclocking limité
