Why dont they just make 1 model without the other 4x pcie that is sandwhiched so close or maybe just 1 less Pci
    Asus could have avoided all the moaning by putting angled sockets, like on the commando and striker/p5n32-e.

    Thorburn has shown us its doable anyway, so so wuckin furries eh?

    True, it just limits the graphic cards u can get, angled Sata connectors are the solution. I personally liked the Evga AC3 8800gtx but thats gone out the window oh well Im not gonna mention it again it cos its a wicked board and im just being picky

    Using angled connectors you should still be able to access 2 of the headers, even with a 8800 Ultra, but don't quote me on that as I can't check clearances without a card

    Thing is, out of all of the boards ive messed around with in the last year, NONE, have worked this well, out of the box, even the P5B was flakey at the very start.

    If the sata thing is the only real niggle, then it shouldnt be a reason not to buy, as its fixable

    Exactly, Ive read a few reviews and sofar its been rock solid and flies, and its still got alot of Bios upgrades to come so it can only get better. I wud only ever use 2 Hd's at a time so I dont even have a problem with it anyway

    If I can get the voltage down a touch, this'll be the 24/7 settings I think.

    So i've had a flick through clunk but i've been a bit busy with exams, is your verdict that this board is as good as the P5B deluxe that you always recommended? Just i want to try and future proof a bit!

    It seems to me that the black slot is definitely mislabeled. If it can't run electrically at 16x, it shouldn't be labeled like this:

    Not uncommon I think, I've seen several labeled like that. Sure it defines the electrical spec (I agree it ought to) and not the physical spec?

    I guess they do expect people to RTFM with a board like this...

    @wschalle: they label the mechanical objects to solder to the board for production and visual recognition, not what their electrical or abstract performance is.

    Its physically a 16x slot, but electrically a 4x.

    I can plug in the 8800GTX and CPU-Z it tomorrow.

    The HD2900XT is a slightly shorter (but fatter) card, is slower that an 8800 GTX - and looks to be about on a par with a 'full fat' 8800 GTS - but needs a 6 pin and an 8 pin power connector - Not many PSUs at the moment have a spare 8 pin.....

    I think that apart from the ATi die hards - they have missed the boat this time round... the 2900 a year ago would have been awsome, now it is.... yawn.... Unless they have an XTX hidden in the cupboard... but that power requirement is not good news...
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    was just testing how far i can run 4gb on stock volts

    AI is good for cpu/dimm voltage ....and that's about it

    can't believe how stable this board is on more or less stock bios....incredible
