Asus P5Q PRO Turbo Core 2 Quad/ Intel P45/ DDR2-1300/ A&GbE/ ATX Motherboard

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #12 in Intel Motherboards


Pros: Easy to use for great overclocking, CrossFireX or SLi, Price

Cons: Could be picky on RAMs.

I'm currently using this mobo! biggrin.gif

This mobo is very overclocking friendly even if you leave settings on AUTO in the BIOS. thumb.gif

Of course, since it's a budget class mobo, one can't expect ASUS to provide all the overclocking options there is for you to play with like they do for the top premium class mobos.

The ASUS P5Q PRO Turbo has received excellent reviews and has been picked as the best budget overclocking mobo for its time.

It's crossfire version of the P5Q Turbo and the newer version of the P5Q PRO.

I can set my E5200 R0 (2.5GHz) CPU to run at 3.5GHz with the default VCore on this mobo.

And I'm able to push my CPU to run @ 4GHz P95 stable. thumb.gif

Update: Currently running Q9650 E0 (1.175 VID) on this mobo @ 4GHz w/1.224V P95 stable. thumbsupsmiley.png

P.S.: Feel free to stop by the owners club to learn more about this lovely mobo as well as the P5Q PRO and the P5Q Turbo. cheers.gif


Pros: intel quad core support good overclock, dual pcie

Cons: ddr2 limits ram speed

i loved this board sturdy powerful and easy to use, would always pick asus they have never let me down and this board is brilliant, my only grumble is that the sata connector positioning isnt great for cable management smile.gif
