    I've noticed an error in the article. "Also, you can't use the two DriveXpert sockets as normal SATA ports, so basically you end up with only five out of eight that are usable due to the layout."

    I've had a chance to play with the P5Q. The DriveXpert sockets are setup as "normal SATA ports" by default to provide 7 SATA ports.

    Sorry for the bump, but I have a question about this motherboard's layout.

    Will a Creative X-Fi Platinum card fit on the upper PCI slot, or will the RAM stand on its way?

    An assortment of flatering comments; so here's a reality check.

    Take a look at the ASUS forum for this board and you'll find an increasing number of people who are very unhappy with it. One of those was me and after 2.5 weeks of trying patiently to get it working I gave up. Not only did it not work, the ASUS support was useless and really didn't do anything helpful. Please note that I was not overclocking, I was just looking for a stable high end configuration.

    On paper, this board looks good. In reality, it's a pain to keep running and ASUS seem to have already left it behind. You may also like to consider many of the posts which show that many of the board's features cannot work together... don't be fooled by the specs.

    I've been an ASUS owner for years, but I'm now the happy owner (36 hours without a failure) of a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P. BTW, the same Powersupply, Memory, CPU (Q9550), HDD (WD Black 1TB), Video card (ASUS 9800GT) and OS (Vista 64U) are in use.

    Asus forums, like any other, are only frequented by people with issues. It's only ones like DFI Club that are "community" for overclocking and the likes.

    We also recommended the UD3R too - great board.

    Did you just RMA it? Maybe later revisions are worse?
