Asus goes mental: P5K3 Premium with onboard 2GB DDR3 - Page 8

post #71 of 88
I wont buy. Time for 2gb is seeming to be going by quick, more and more people are buying 2x(2x1gb) kits, or Mushkins 2x2gb kits, I bet at stock it'll kill my OC'd ram, but, oh well.

The time for 2gb kits won't be gone for a while, I think. Since you can't fully utilize 4GB in 32 bit systems, moving the RAM requirements up to 4GB will mean a necessary migration to 64 bit OS. I don't think that's going to happen quickly.

i think vista 32bit alredy utilizes 4gb of ram.not 100% sure though.

I could careless if they put heat-pipes all over the place, I don't stare at the motherboard while I browse.

My mobo seats in the case and the case it's under my desk, I haven't seen my GeForce 8800 GTX in over a months, I know it's there, so why would anyone care about how the MoBo looks?

And DuckieHo; unfortunately you have no clue what you're talking about 90% of the time, and all I have to say in this case you're within that 90%.

That ASUS boards sure looks way better than that DFI they showed last week.
You're wrong, that's all I have to say. You don't know what you're talking about. I don't have to prove my case, I'll just say you're wrong because you are, and since I know you're wrong, I don't need to prove it.

EDIT: This motherboard doesn't impress me. Unless you plan on using Windows XP for 1.5 years, you have no real benefit of using this board. The ram is limited to what's on the board, which unfortunately for Vista, isn't efficient. The pro's don't outweigh the con's at all.

Sure, you might get slightly better electrical current stability with your memory interface, but at the expense of what?

1. Inability to upgrade your memory
2. Lack of a lifetime warranty on memory
3. No way of replacing a bad stick or taking one bad stick out and running your system on 1gb while waiting for RMA
4. Good luck trying to replace that stock cooling with a water block set up on the north bridge/south bridge. Anyone trying to even HINT that a heatpipe elementary school jungle gym has better cooling than water is pretty much trolling.

Who would benefit from this board? Honestly, it doesn't make sense. A board with "better" over-clocking power on memory would be best suited for enthusiasts when price is concerned, right? Okay so you tell me, what enthusiast in his right mind would spend $600-700 on a motherboard that can only use 2GB of ram? And if it's targeted to Fatal1ty bling bling users, those guys have enough trouble affording 10 LED lights and a Fatal1ty VGA cooler, much the less a $600-700 board with integrated memory.

I just don't see a target audience for this board and I'd stay away from it as far as I can. ASUS has already been slowly losing my respect with how stupid their pricing is. If Gigabyte can have a very solid enthusiast board for $120-130 that has solid caps, a 475-500 FSB ceiling and great BIOS options, why can't ASUS?

dumn idea..what if you really need more than 2GB of ram, no upgrade?
waste of copper.
post #78 of 88
like stated before,these boards are aimed at the people that have no knowledge about mobos and pcs.and for the people that like to look at copper lol.

i think it is a good idea if it is cheaper than buying a mobo and 2 gb of ram but if it is the same price or more i dont see why you would want this

this is for the fools that think this will bring much more stability and overclockability.
