    I came across the ASUS P5N-D at newegg today and was interested in having in my next build possibly. I'm unsure of what its overclocking abilities are is the problem. I like the fact it has PCI-E 2.0 and SLI support. I going to get the ASUS P5K-E but now that this has come along I'm tied up on what I want to get.

    What do you all think?

    i saw some reviews off some sites (not sure abt reliability, but there were quite a few) that showed that it performed well under normal circumstances, but if u oc it, it tends to fall behind the same boards from other brands. also lik nOv1c3 said, some driver/hardware related issues still (maybe) unresolved. thats y i decided to get a striker II extreme instead, though i cant clock a q6600 G0 up to 3.6 on H20 :(. maybe cuz ambient temps are 28-30 XD

    I think its just 8x I believe the 790 is a true x16 x16 board

    But dont hold me on that :p I could be wrong :D

    i just replaced my Asus P5N-D with the EVGA 750i FTW cause the Asus was randomly freezing and had the semi-famous video corruption and guess what, the EVGA does it as well, though not as often. I swapped video cards, ram, drivers, bioses, fresh os installs....
    I opted for the rma shipping insurance this time when i ordered the EVGA.
    I'm done with nvidia, anybody recommend a good intel based board?

    Yes its 2.0 and 16x in SLI mode, however i would not but this board it has taken me 3 months and finally i have a gr8 catch the EVGA 750 mobo, even tho it's a new release and all and no news on problems i would choose this one if you can not afford a 780 or 790 mobo, like meeeeee

    Wow, CPTcaveman. You gave up on the Asus P5N-D? You were/are a staple of the P5N-D forum. Does the front panel HHD light work on your case with the 750i FTW?

    I got an ASUS P5N-D 750i some days ago. And I can say it was nervous hours until it finally POST'd hehe.

    Read so much crap about the board, both the Asus and Evga forums are cluttred with unhappy people.

    Personally I havn't had the slighest problem so far. The North Bridge do get hotter then my old board ( Gigabyte P35 DQ6 ) but I put the active NB fan on and now idles at 37 degrees, hot summer day. ( Using Asus PC PROBE II )

    I got SLI working on the board after a while, was abit stressing since it didn't POST at all the first 2 hours, then I realized my GTX wasn't all the way in the PCI-E ports, hehe.

    I'm about to start OCing with the board. I have stayed away from the box driver CD, actually threw it away since I heard it is the devil. Dled newest nforce from Nvidia, and my bios is factory 0302 ( on top of my head ).

    Ah well, see how it OC's, it is advertised as hell of a clocker board, but obviously the early batches and revisions have had alot of bad chipsets/dead on arrival.

    /edit,

    Might wanna add I have a 100% functionality so far.

    Overclocked a E8500 on one of these boards here at work. Seems flawless and stable.

    Well what do you need from your board, thats the real question?


    Personally I needed an OCable board with SLI @ x16 on both lanes and pci-e 2.0 slots.

    Atm as I see it ddr3 is a waste of money still, perhaps on next upgrade when Nahalem is released.

    I also wanted a cheap board with an easy BIOS, and for me Asus 750i has all that. I can nothing but recommend it. Then again I have heard other people having huge problems with it, though I havn't experienced any, so I guess it has to due with abit of luck.

    Well for sli u need a nvidia chipset mb. And since both the 9600 and 8800 GT have pci-e 2.0 support I think it would be nice if the mobo supported that.

    750i from asus and evga have all of this.

    Then the question is about the price. Evga costs more in europe then US while the Asus costs the same in both regions.

    If you live in the states I would go with the evga model, if in europe the asus since it is ALOT cheaper then the evga.

    I think i will go for the Asus but, were just a bit sceptic, seeing all the bad forum reviews.

    Did you sofar had any problems concerning the mobo?
