Package and Contents
As we normally do here at TweakTown, we are starting off with the package and the contents. ASUS continues to use a blue background with their Intel based motherboards, but this time it's a lighter shade than the Core 2 Duo boards. Since the Core i7 is a new series of processor, the X58 board gets a new number system; this now being the 6 series from ASUS. On the front there is the company and board model logos along with the usual graphics to show the CPU and chipset support.
The P6T Deluxe has a flap that opens up with a lot more marketing info on the board, which includes the OC Palm and the EPU 6 engine power saving system that the board supports.
On the back of the box ASUS has done a fantastic job with extra information. In fact, they have even put the same spec list that is on their website on the bottom right portion of the box, which means there is no need to go to the website to look up the specs as they're right on the box. At the top right ASUS has given a full colour photo of the board, so there are no surprises as to what you're buying.
The board comes with a single user manual that explains the full workings and specifications of the ASUS motherboard; this includes the correct installation of the CPU, graphics card and memory, driver installing, software included and the BIOS setup. All in all it is a very comprehensive manual from ASUS. The DVD included has drivers and software for both Vista and XP in 32-bit and 64-bit variants.
