Summary: I bought this motherboard because my last finally fryed. It too was an Asus P4. I like the layout of the back plane. I was going to upgrade to a newer processor family. This allows for me to go up to Core i7. The lack of a paraelle port was the only draw back. You should know what you have and what changes you need to do. I didn't want to throw away working equipment just to upgrade. I want to do that over time. It a good product but limited in choices (i.e) LGA1156.
Conclusion: It goes without saying that power efficiency is at the forefront of many consumers’ minds today, and for good reason. Whether you are trying to save money or the environment – or both – it’s good to know just how much effort certain vendors are putting into their products to help them excel in this area. Both AMD and Intel have worked hard to develop efficient chips, and that’s evident with each new launch.
Pros: Smart board design – no installation issues., Color scheme should appeal to many., Feature-packed from a software/hardware standpoint., Overclocking is made easy on this board, regardless of the route you take., On-board DTS Surround Sound., Priced right at $170.
Cons: No on-board BIOS reset button. Ditto for power/reset., Only three fan connectors.
