Final Thoughts


ASUS is definitely one of the biggest motherboard names out there, and when they give you a premium classed motherboard, you get a board packed with features. The ASUS P5AD2 was one of these boards; the P5AD2-E continues this.


The P5AD2-E has all of the features and abilities of the original 925X motherboard, but with the latest I925XE chipset and support for 1066FSB makes it a board hard to go past.


In terms of performance the board far exceeded our expectations, especially when it comes to overclocking. Hitting past the 310MHz FSB barrier gives a lot of hope for uses of 800FSB CPU's as speeds beyond 266FSB are now possible without SATA drives disappearing and bus frequencies being too far out of specs.


For all its glory we have given the ASUS P5AD2-E motherboard TweakTown's "MUST HAVE" Best Performance Award.
