Asus P5Q Pro Turbo

Hey guys,

Anyone have any experience or opinions on this board?

Thinking I'll buy one and sell my Gigabyte (which is being a knobby-fathead and wont play with my 4770).
Advantages for me being the multi-profile turbo and it has more power phases (which I assume means more stable overclocks on power hungry quads?).

Cheers, any thoughts welcome. Wont be ordering until next week.

  1. you should go with the x48 chipset as it has come waaay down in price

    I picked up one of the asus p5e-deluxe boards from newegg a few months back and it has been a great upgrade i even flashed it to the rampage formula bios like I've seen on the net. I can highly recommend this motherboard.
  2. Thanks for the reply.
    I would love to move to X48, but in NZ where I am, they're still very high in price for a Core2 platform.

    In the meantime I'm sticking with my Gigabyte. New video card turned up and it seems to work properly. It's still a board fault, but I don't want to change motherboards unless I absolutely have to.

    I'm back at 533 x 8, this time with a Sapphire 4850 :)

    Im kinda with that saying, "If it isn't broke don't fix it!" it seems like you have a pretty solid thing going there with your current board, thats a nice overclock. . .
  4. Yeah, plus don't want to install the Xigmatech Porter NB cooler again (needed it for 533 FSB) and don't want to be computerless for a week while I wait for stuff to get replaced. Going to see if I can return the 4770 though ;)
