- Fanless Design - Heat Pipe & Stack Cool 2
- Array Mic / Noise Filter
- Compatible with all FSB1333/1066/800/533MHz CPUs except Quad Core HUH??

Anyway ,I'm more interested in the usefulness of buying PC2-8500 for a higher overclocking headroom than my PC2-6400

Will 8500 work on my 800mhz ram board

I noticed this further down the page.

LGA775 Intel® Quad-core Processor Ready
This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Quad-core processors in LGA775 package.
It's excellent for multi-tasking, multi-media and enthusiastic gamers with 1066/800 MHz FSB.
Intel® Quad-core is one of the most powerful CPU in the world.

Kingston® HyperX® PC2-8500 Ready (default overclock at 1066 MHz)
The Kingston HyperX PC2-8500 is high-frequency memory that delivers outstanding performance. Built with only the best components, the P5B Deluxe and PC2-8500 HyperX memory are optimized for each other to reach maximum performance. Both are validated for stability and compatibility.
*The Kingston DIMM modules are not included in ASUS motherboard package.

I think it's only going to support the dual core Penryns. Because it says at the top of the list you copied it supports 45nm multi core. Then at the bottom it says 1333's except quad core. (I shortened it) I'll bet it's going to support the duals and not the quad Penryns. This is a total speculation on my part though admittedly.

It's still a top of the line motherboard IMO. I am willing to bet you will be able to use all that without issues. Im sure if Quad 45nm is not supported right away, it will be after another BIOS release. Afterall, I can't see why not, 1333Mhz FSB is nothing for this motherboard and it already supports 65nm Quads so I don't see why 45nm would be a problem.

I realized pretty soon after posting that the listed specs for the WiFi Ap don't include the "except quad core" line, I didnt think there was much difference in the two.
