    Thoughts opinions??
    ASUS P5Q Deluxe LGA 775 Intel P45 Intel Motherboard



    Anyone have any idea if the P45 or the X48 chipset is better??
    Basically I think my mobo may be faulty and I want to try an asus anyway, never had one before.

    The only thing is in the specs it says it has 8 sata 300's but I only see 4 am I blind??

    I've no experience of either chipset, but from the specs I'd have to say that the board you've shown there sounds better, handling dual channel DDR2 at 1200MHz vs 1066MHz.

    I believe the other SATA 4 connectors are side on, 2 either side of the IDE connector, 2 red, 2 orange. If I'm wrong then I'm at a loss to figure out what else those connectors could be.

    Thanks guys. Well I could do it now or I could wait a bit. My current board is ok but I think it may be on its way out and I hate to be without a main computer for any amt of time. I do have my HTPC rig that works fine.

    I am looking for something that will be a kick ass board that can overclock well. DDR 3 hmmm I don't know for sure yet I do like teh speeds but still Im unsure.
