Motherboard Highlights

The bottom right hand corner of the Asus P5B-E motherboard is very busy From the COM1 port to the three USB headers at the bottom of the motherboard. ON the right there's the floppy drive connector, a bit lower we find the six Serial ATA II ports and a Parallel IDE connector. The power LED indicator tells you if the motherboard is receiving power. The Intel ICH8R southbridge is under that small passive aluminum heatsink.

There is plenty of space around the CPU socket so you can install larger heatsinks or water blocks without much difficulty. The Intel P965 Express Northbridge can get quite warm during operation so you'll want to have good system airflow to keep things cool.

The four DDR2 memory slots can be stuffed with up to 8GB of DDR2-800 memory. Asus colour coordinates the DIMM slots to indicate which must be occupied to enable dual channel memory support. If you're upgrading an older computer and have a 20 pin ATX power supply, you'll also want to get a new ATX 2.0 spec PSU. Newer models handle the power requirements of modern systems better.

The Asus P5B-E motherboard might have quite a bit of peripherals integrated but it also comes with many expansion options. The three PCI Express x1 slots allow you to install high bandwidth devices without having to worry about bottlenecks.
