    I went with the Asus P5Q Pro P45 motherboard and I need some advice on it. I hear that Asus uses a different BIOS and can be tricky to overclock, I just need advice on what to expect. Be prepared before I get it.

    I have the P5q pro and let me tell ya' that it is a great board. I have had my E8400 to 4.3ghz with just voltage adjustments. My first Mobo was a Asus K8N-E S754 and it was rock solid. I will always choose Asus if the board has the features I am looking for.

    Im on my second board, first was a Asus A8n32 SLI deluxe a awesome board then upgraded to second mobo which is Asus Crosshair.

    Now this is the best, ultimate board i think, its got everything i need, all the connections i need and a great architecture.

    Asus are a great brand, id probably stick with them for the future, only problem is i need a board with certain connections and spaces relating to PCI slots and other internal components, but u cant go wrong with Asus.
