ASUS P5QL-E Review

Price: $109.99


Have you been looking for a new motherboard that hosts one of the newest chipsets out on the market? Maybe you are just looking for a nice little upgrade for your setup, or you are building a completely new system. Well, ASUS may just have the solution for you with the release of the ASUS P5QL-E. This motherboard uses the newest Intel chipset, the P43+, which will allow you to utilize your new 45nm processors to the fullest extent. Not only does it use the newest chipset, you will also be able to use this speed demon to get on the internet in about 5 seconds. Enough talking, let's see what's going on with this board.  

Closer Look:  

The packaging for the ASUS P5QL-E is very similar to just about every other motherboard box that is out on the market. However, what is inside and what the packaging has printed on it is different. The ASUS P5QL-E uses ASUS Express Gate technology to get you online in an impressive 5 seconds. You are also able to use Skype in this first 5 seconds. The maximum FSB that the P5QL-E is able to support is 1600MHz, which again is very impressive. The capacitors that are installed on the motherboard are 100% Japanese-made Solid Capacitors, allowing for a longer lifespan before you will have to switch out for a new board. The back of the packaging is where you are going to find all of the specifications of the ASUS P5QL-E, such as the MyLogo2 support, Intel P43+ICH10R, 8 Phase Power, Socket LGA775 & 45nm CPU Support, and PCI-E 2.0.  














So what is inside of the packaging? Well let's take a look at all of the goodies that ASUS has sent us with the board!
