Asus P5P43TD


$87.00 Released April, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Available with USB 3.0 connectivity for $5 more. Simple installation - the board has lots of room to work with. Compatible with the largest CPU heatsinks on the market.

The Cons:Dual slot graphics cards will block SATA ports #5 and #6 and possibly PCI/E slots. BIOS settings are unclear - users will have to refer to the instruction manual. Lacks the ASUS Q-fan for the chassis fan.

The Asus P5P43TD is a 775 socket, ATX Intel motherboard designed for standard Intel processors, including Pentium Dual-Core, Celeron Dual-Core, and Core 2 Duo / Quad / Extreme. It hosts integrated parallel, serial, FireWire, USB, and eSATA ports, but it offers no integrated video, which means a third-party module is required.

Critics say the performance (especially with 4GB to 16GB of DDR3 RAM) is extraordinary, though they don’t like how close the PCI-e slots are to each other. Also, both the rear USB / SATA ports are the same color, which can cause confusion. Additional features include integrated Gigabit Ethernet, integrated 8-channel HD audio, and support for RAID 0, 1, 0+1, and 5.
