Probably the best 775 motherboard that has ever existed!
14 June 2013
Summary: Awesome board hands down.
Pros: I had this motherboard last year for around 8 months, and in that time it saw a Q9450 @ 3.8GHz with Dominators running at 1100MHz. Pretty insane overclocking board thanks to those 8 power phases and very efficient heatsinks doing a great job at keeping the X48 chip cool. Bios is very user friendl...
Summary: Motherboard link needs to be updated to: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/RAMPAGE_FORMULA/
Pros: I liked having the advanced X48 chipset with the DDR2 modules since at that time DDR3 was new on the market and expensive compared to DDR2. Also other reviewers had good things to say about its compatibility with Linux.
Cons: Showing its again with SATA 3G/s only, Only Quad cores supported, etc.
Summary: P5K has sporadic bios issues, needed a quick drop in replacement, X48 works fine, southbridge is same, dropped right in, just needed a creative soundcard driver update. Overclocks to 3.8 with a X3210 from 2.13ghz default, not bad. Not hot either, feature loaded.
Pros: Everything, great package, even at this late date.
Cons: No wifi, however I removed the Wifi module from the P5K Premium and will install it. It should work, drivers are already installed.
Summary: I'll keep buying ASUS motherboards due to the fact they are super easy to use and rock solid.
Pros: So many BIOS settings to tweak that you can overclock a q6600 from 2.4GHz to 3.62GHz stable, in no time. I recently upgraded to a q9650 and went from 3.0GHz to 4.2GHz by changing only a three settings, everything else is: auto.
Cons: At first the many tweakable BIOS settings was a con because I didn't know what I was doing. But after a lot of online research I found that overclocking is just simple math, plus trial and error. The massive Bios settings may not a con, but the many days of research definitely was.
Summary: i just game with my rig dont OC so my board never let's me down
Pros: Absolutely a fantastic board i have owned two of these beast in the past never a problem i run on windows seven x64 with out a problem sound card works super so the naighbours say have a E 8500 straped in 8 gigs of PC- 6400 ati 5770 1 GB this board rocks thankyou ASUS
Cons: none at all i love asus they have never let me down
