A few preliminary words about Asus. Since Intel is not shipping their wireless module yet, Asus decided to fill the gap. Therefore, both of Asus' top motherboards (P5AD2 and P5GD2 Premium) come with a 802.11 b/g wireless module that is integrated onto the board.

Also, Asus caused a stir at the Computex by presenting the Stack Cool cooling solution to the public. Stack Cool is basically nothing more than an additional PCB layer that is placed at the bottom of a motherboard. Thanks to its thermal characteristics, it helps to noticeably reduce the temperature of many core components.
