Great performance for the price.

Anthony B., Newegg
27 August 2010
  • Summary: Always been a fan of ASUS boards because I have never had one fail on me. Even had one that got struck by lightning. Lost a memory channel, on board audio, on board NIC but the motherboard lasted 6 years. If you want a reliable motherboard , buy an ASUS.
  • Pros: It turned on and posted the first time i pushed the power which is something my ABIT (RIP) and MSI boards have never done. Great motherboard for those who do not intend to do a 3 way SLI. If you want a lot of SATA ports, this is your motherhood (There are 8 SATA connectors)
  • Cons: The board has 3 way SLI but can only run 16x16x4 making a 3 way SLI/Crossfire setup pointless (I am not a gamer so this doesn't matter to me).

SLI heat, memory problem

Anonymous, Newegg
23 August 2010
  • Summary: SLI configuration was dead easy with the latest driver from NVidia. Now, if only Blizzard will add SLI support for World of Warcraft..... and I have to buy that fan. I can feel the heat coming out of the box; this is my first SLI, so I guess I should have expected that.
  • Pros: No problems directly attributable to the mobo. Great packaging, instructions. 1 bubble taken off for too-close PCI-e slots.
  • Cons: I got this as part of a Newegg all-items package with three 2GB OCZ3G1600LV6GK DDR3 and two MSI N250GTS TwinFrozr GTS250 1GB SLI video cards. My job kept me from building for 35 days; don't ever order if you can't build ASAP, as Newegg's exchange policy stops at 30 days. Build went flawlessly; I'...

GREAT mobo

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Two PCIE 2.0 slots running at x16, perfect for high-end SLI. TurboV is pretty nice for OC'ing.
  • Cons: Cold boot issue. Sometimes when it's been off for a while, it'll turn on and fail overclocking or have a fan error. Simply rebooting fixes this.

Still a Great Choice

Nicholas i., Newegg
24 May 2010
  • Summary: Every aspect of this board suits me ideally, apart from the PCIE 2.0 x16 slot placement. While X58 boards still command a premium price, the P6T remains a solid choice, for the features it provides at it's price.
  • Pros: It's hard to pick an X58 board. The features are all almost identical among the competitors. But there are subtle differences that make all the... uh, difference. At the time I purchased it, this was the only non-enthusiast class board to provide two full x16 pathway PCIE 2.0 slots. All it's comp...
  • Cons: I chose this board specifically for it's usage of two x16 PCIE 2.0 slots, rather than most boards' x16, x8, x8 configuration. But I think Asus dropped the ball with their slot placement. Being that nobody is going to use the x4 slot for a graphics card, it should have been sandwiched in between t...

Great mobo

Placido B., Newegg
25 March 2010
  • Pros: I don't think I am an ultimate tech dude when it comes to computers, but I know enough to at least put a computer together. I've had my old computer for over six years now, so I wanted something that would last me just as long, so I went with a mobo that supports the core i7 processors. Technical...
  • Cons: I wanted to update the BIOS, but I am currently having issues with it. I have Windows 7 64bit version installed and I went to the ASUS website to download the BIOS and the installer. Apparently, the installer won't load stating that I don't have the correct version for Win7. I downloaded both the...

Does well

Melvin T., Newegg
19 March 2010
  • Summary: Nice mobo. It seems to handle top end games well and multitasking also. Runs Cool. No stutters or random restarts, no errors. All ports work great (have not tested firewire ports as I don't have anything firewire nor have I hooked up a floppy).
  • Pros: One of the cheaper motherboards. Tons of cables etc. Preforms well.
  • Cons: The PC speaker is absolute garbage. Both my friend and I have purchased this motherboard and the PC Speaker causes a high pitched whine in the speakers. Unplug it and toss it. Express Gate is garbage too, but since it is optional to use, feel free to toss in the "I'm never gonna use this" pile.

its like a girlfriend

Matthew W., Newegg
4 February 2010
  • Summary: Its like a girlfriend: awesome when you figure out what makes her tick just right.
  • Pros: First off, this board is a beast. I have an SLI setup and my i7 920 overclocks to 3.4ghz with little effort. No complaints about the features or performance.
  • Cons: Cold boot issue: my board does not detect all 3 ram sticks upon the first cold boot, i.e. when i come home from work. But if it shut it down (not restart) and then turn it on again it will detect all the RAM. It took me 3 weeks of trying every possible timing and voltage until i stumbled upon thi...

Convenient

Lana P., Newegg
23 December 2009
  • Summary: I do not plan to overclock any components using this motherboard, so I cannot comment on its OC performance.
  • Pros: Lots of SATA ports. SATA ports facing to the side causes less interference and allows for a large videocard to fit nicely.
  • Cons: I hate how far the CPU Fan power plug is from the CPU slot itself. The fan slots in general are placed a bit awkwardly.

Never buy a cheap motherboard

Chad B., Newegg
19 December 2009
  • Summary: 2 years ago I bought a top of the line ASUS motherboard and now they act like it's ancient history and they did not support Windows 7 on it, so I got mad and bought a cheap ASRock and had trouble with it and came back to ASUS and got this thing. It's nothing like what I had before, but it works!
  • Pros: ASUS makes a solid motherboard that is guaranteed for 3 years slot layout is perfect It has 2 PS/2's for kvm switches It has esata (that works now, thanks jmicron) audio can switch from usb to back plug while playing 2 seperate sata controllers (can run 1 ide, 1 ahci)
  • Cons: How did this sideways sata conector thing start? I can't get to the things in the case. I can't see which way they go. I can't push on them. Their support is kind of disorganized and if you've got a problem, you will have trouble getting to the solution, but they build pretty solid stuff that usu...
