ASUS Striker Extreme vs. P5N32-E SLI

Legion Hardware
2 August 2007
  • Summary: Well there you have it folks, just as we suspected the P5N32-E SLI is every bit as good as the Striker Extreme. In fact we recon it’s a whole lot better since you save around $130 US and sacrifice nothing worth mentioning. The only useful features that are missing on the P5N32-E SLI that can be found on the Striker Extreme are the two eSATA ports. However as mentioned earlier, if you really want these ports simply spend $25 US and get a 2-port eSATA card.

ASUS Striker Extreme

Legion Hardware
2 May 2007
  • Summary: There are just two problems with the ASUS Striker Extreme, two things that make this board a bit dicey. First and foremost it costs around $400 US, making it the most expensive motherboard ever reviewed here at Legion Hardware. In fact, it could be the most expensive desktop motherboard ever released. Sadly this is nothing to gloat about, particularly when competing solutions featuring the same chipset cost roughly $270 US.

  • Excerpt: How much of a badass mother is Asus’s new motherboard? It’s so bad that it doesn’t even use numbers in its name. Yeah, there’s no R2-D2-like naming convention here. Just call it Striker Extreme, or El Extremerino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing. The Extreme isn’t just about marketing shtick though. Asus has integrated some pretty compelling features into this nForce 680i–based Intel Core 2 motherboard that we hadn’t seen before.
  • Pros: Plain-English POST display and useful LED lighting.
  • Cons: Price, are you serious?

ASUS Striker Extreme Mainboard Review

X-bit labs
6 February 2007
  • Summary: Some call ASUS Striker Extreme the today’s best mainboard for computer enthusiasts, however we have to disagree with them on that. We discovered that it is not as great as they praise it and may not be worth the money they ask for it in stores. Find out why from our new review!
  • Pros: Excellent performance;, Nvidia SLI support, three PCI Express x16 slots;, Outstanding accessories bundle;, Great for poorly lit places :), Impeccable support of 1T Command rate setting and pseudo-asynchronous memory clocking.
  • Cons: Performance drop on FSB frequency increase beyond 420MHz;, Big difference between the selected and actual voltage settings in BIOS Setup;, High price.

  • Excerpt: 2007 is set to be a big year for Intel and its Core architecture. Designed from lessons learnt from the Netburst and Pentium-M architectures, Core micro architecture is set to push Intel through the 2007 year, and already we have seen processors from them that run cooler, perform better and even support quad cores on a single CPU package yet all of this is nothing unless you have an equally impressive platform to run it on.

ASUS Striker Extreme review

27 December 2006
  • Conclusion: Conclusion The overall impression this board left is very positive. It?s based on a solid chipset and is a good competition to EVGA board. The pros of this board over EVGA one are improved cooling and slightly better performance while EVGA has a slightly better BIOS. There is another thing we should mention when comparing there boards. EVGA boards reportedly had some SATA problems.

The expension capabilities include 4 DIMM slots support DDR2-800 (8GB MAX).
