All around great board with excellent features for a great price. Overclocks well with few issues.

Overall a very good board. Runs cool with the funky copper heatpipes. I've had problems with the audio in XP (see Realtek) - spontaneous loss of sound. Updated drivers and all that but only temporarily fixes the problem. No problems in Vista however. Love the Asus Q-Connectors! Raid set up is back-asswards but I don't use Raid so not an issue.

This Board is great I have a core 2 duo 6400 2.13, could only over clock it to 2.4 ghz with my asrock dual vsta board. Now thanks to the PK5 it cranks up to 3.3 ghz with 4 gigs of budget ram, The board got a little hot so i put in an extra case fan, have been running it for a month no probs. My vid card is a superclocked 8800. Not sure how to check frames on Medal of Honor but it runs creamy smooth with every option cranked. My flight simx went from 16 frames a sec to about 25 frames on Tokyo ET in missions with most options cranked, and runs without glitches.
