Pros

thin design will fit into some odd cases, leaves lots of room in a normal ATX case

1 agrees

supports some very high overclocking of the CPU

1 agrees

supports some very fast RAM chips, easy to overclock

1 agrees

interface with the PCI-E and RAM is good enough to make this into a gaming machine

1 agrees

PCI-E x16 slot is positioned far away from the drive ports, makes it easy to run cables

1 agrees

versatile motherboard, will work with a wide variety of components for high end or cheaper components

1 agrees

The Asus P5Q SE PLUS is a 775 socket, ATX Intel motherboard designed for only Intel Core 2 processors. As a more restrictive downgrade from the P5P43TD, it uses DDR2 memory instead; plus it offers zero RAID support. Like its counterpart, however, the P5Q SE PLUS too features integrated Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. There is in fact no difference between the two, besides the memory and HDD differentiations. Featured also is a single PCI-e x16, two PCI-e x1, and three PCI slots that critics decry as being too close to one another. Additional features include integrated high-definition audio, no integrated video whatsoever (third-party PCI module required), and FireWire/eSATA connectivity.
