Package and Contents
Starting off as we normally do, we first take a look at the package and contents that you get with the board. After all, it's only half complete if you don't get any goodies for your money. The box that the P5Q Deluxe comes in has a new colour scheme, something new from ASUS. A dark blue theme with light blue overtones gives it a rather eye catching design.
There is a lift-up flap on the front of the box that has quite a bit of marketing hype about the EPU6 technology and features of the board. While it's nice to see, there isn't any real info on how the technology works. This will come from us in our next article.
On the back of the box, ASUS has gone with some more marketing info as well as a full spec sheet on the board's features. It's the same spec info that comes in the user manual and on the website, so there is no need to look at the company website to gain extra info on the board when you have the manual in hand. To help aid your buying decision, ASUS has put a colour picture of the board in the top right corner of the box, something we applaud at this level of price.
The board comes with a single user manual that explains the full workings and specifications of the ASUS motherboard, including the driver install, software included and the BIOS setup; a very comprehensive manual form ASUS. The DVD included has drivers and software for both Vista and XP in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants. There are no Linux drivers, so alternate OS users are once again left in the dark.
