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.
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.
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: A couple of months ago, we had and we were excited by the way that Asus has completely over-engineered everything on the board. However, at that time, the board was not shipping and we were using both pre-production hardware and a pre-production BIOS.
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.
Summary: The first ODM product based on the NF680i chipset
is here. Elegantly designed and packed with interesting features, this board
excels in details that most manufacturers would have overlooked. Built for the Conroe family of CPUs, this board can
support the quad core and extreme edition processors.
