I have to say I'm mostly unimpressed. The board layout is.....totally chaotic.
Also, because they dont make use of any screw holes on the front end of the board, when you insert memory and the power plug, the board cantilevers....so you have to hold it up with your fingers.
Clever.

Honestly I gave up on ASUS after they botched an RMA repair on my old nForce2 board. Seems there are now more brands I WON'T buy than will lol.

Personally the P5W was my first Asus in around 5 years. Have nothing but good to say about it.

Cooking up a four layer mobo at home is mere child's play. For someone else's children, maybe!
