Asus P5QL/EPU


$80.00 Released June, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:SATA and IDE compliant for those unwilling to part with older components but still want a performance boost. Runs pretty stable and cool at clock speeds. Can still perform fairly well in a gaming rig with a good graphics card.

The Cons:Not very good at overclocking. Dated by today's standards and an LGA1156 board can be bought for only a little more money. Requires a p4 power connector (something only usually seen in server mobos) instead of the standard 24-pin connector.

The Asus P5QL/EPU is a budget-friendly, 775 socket ATX Intel motherboard designed for only Intel Core 2, Pentium and Celeron processors. Featured is a PCI Express x16 slot for adding a dedicated graphics module, two PCI Express x1 slots are three PCI slots that are all, according to critics, well arranged so as to provide enough space for large modules.

Also included are eSATA/FireWire inputs, support for 7.1-channel surround sound (S/PDIF), and two PS/2 ports. There is however no embedded graphics module. Critics say the P5QL/EPU performs exceptionally well, and that it offers lots of options for overclocking, including conventional voltage controls. However, there’s only a passive heatsink for cooling the chipset’s Northbridge, which means users should be extra careful.
