Gallery Highlights of this Asus Motherboard

The green LED just above the secondary PCI Express x16 slot lights up when the power is supplied to the Asus P5N32-SLI Premium. Keep that in mind when taking hardware out, or installing new components. The yellow PCI Express x16 slot operates at PCI Express x8 speeds. Expansion comes care of three PCI Express x16 slots, two PCI Express x1 slots, and two PCI slots. The 802.11g/b wireless LAN card is located in the upper left here.

All six Serial ATA II channels are mounted at a 90 degree angle on the very edge of the Asus P5N32-SLI Premium motherboard. This keeps the SATA cables out of the way of onboard graphics cards, and other devices. You'll definitely want to use this board with a full tower case so there is lots of space at the end of the motherboard to slot the SATA cables into position. There are plenty of fan headers on the Asus P5N32-SLI Premium motherboard, something enthusiasts will like. Many of the capacitors on the Asus P5N32-SLI Premium are the solid state variety, these are higher quality and more reliable than electrolytic capacitors.

The 24 pin ATX, IDE and Floppy connectors are positioned to the right of the DDR2 DIMM slots on the Asus P5N32-SLI Premium motherboard. Insert the DDR2 memory in alternating slots (same colour) to enable dual channel memory support. The board has only one IDE channel, so save this for optical drives (CD or DVD).

Space is a bit tighter around the CPU socket on the Asus P5N32-SLI Premium motherboard because of the two copper heatsinks on the MOSFETs. The wireless networking card runs perpendicular to the motherboard PCB is secured via a screw.
