I never really bought into high end chipsets. I got a P965 board now and would go with a P35 had I waited.

Why you hate your motherboard? Mines work fine.

"X38" is a chipset?

Has a HUGE FSB Hole and the vdroop is large. I wont mention how its stability is just crazy, did you know that web surfing for an hour is more stressful then 6 hours of orthos....

stupid ass board...


oh and it killed my Razer Copperhead mouse...

The P5E3 Deluxe looks like a potentially good board to get. I'll be keeping an eye on it.

But I wouldn't blame ASUS for that. Keep in mind, it's an nV chipset.

Never had any issue with previous nv chipsets and people with other nv chipsets seem to be ok, they still might have some fsb holes and vdroop but not a .05v drop...

It's funny though, either people love their asus boards and they work great or they are terrible. I have seen both on these forums. Fortunatley for me I have had no problems.

My ASUS mobo seems to be the epitome of stability since I got rid of that old RAM and put the new Samsung SATA300 hard drive in. Haven't had a single hickup or anything remotely like that- and I've spent hours on this baby gaming. But I do feel your pain Magus... as much as I love this board, I'm quite confident my next one will be the Foxconn board that uses the X38 chipset.
