I`m considering buying one. I liked the PRICE, overclocking, look. It has positive reviews.
I trust yours opinion more than reviews.

I absolutely love mine. Beast of an overclocker (reached 550 FSB on Custom PC's tests), rock solid stability, looks good and its ASUS, you cant really go wrong ;)

hehe I must say ASUS is one company i would love to work for, their line up is just excellent. for a £90 board thats as good as they are, you really cannot beat them!

Also, just before a mod bites your head off, use multi quote next time instead of 3 seperate quotes :toast:

I was considering (before kyle comments :D) Gigabyte P35-DS3R more expensive and MSI P35 neo2-fr great price performance but I can`t find one in my country.

i was never an Asus fan tbh ,but this board has changed my opinion of Asus in a big way ,stable,oc easy as hell ,lets u save OC profiles in the bios ! ,something ive never seen before on my old preferred brand of Abit.
Comes with lots of little extras,special connectors so u know your power button,hd leds are connected right ,mini fans for the heatpipes etc.

i think ull be happy with 1 of these.

Well I use it and it's never put a foot wrong. However I suggest also considering these boards: Asus P5Q Deluxe, Biostar TPower145, and the Foxconn Mars. Whichever of these oards you choose (including the P5K) you will not be disappointed. The P5Q is the best but therefore the most expensive.
