ASUS P5E3 Deluxe (Intel X38)



The Intel X38 may be the ultimate enthusiast chipset for the Intel Core 2 platform today, but trust ASUS to come up with an interesting proposition that isn't just another rehash or revision of an existing high-end P35 motherboard. The new ASUS P5E3 Deluxe is perhaps one of the most functional motherboards we've gotten to use that actually manages to change the way we work with the PC. And we mean this literally. You've probably heard of the new Express Gate feature, but like so many over-hyped functions in motherboards today, we won't blame you for passing it off at the first glance as just another marketing gimmick. Express Gate will rock your world.

The ASUS P5E3 Deluxe WiFi-AP@n Edition motherboard.

The ASUS P5E3 Deluxe comes with the following product bundle:-

  • 6 x SATA cables
  • 2 x SATA power cables (dual plug)
  • UltraDMA 133/100/66 cable
  • Floppy disk drive cable
  • 2 x WiFi antennas (WiFi-AP@n edition only)
  • ASUS Ai Remote + Infrared sensor
  • 2-port USB2.0 + IEEE 1394a module
  • 3 in 1 ASUS Q-Connector Kit
  • 2 x Optional cooling fans
  • I/O Shield
  • User's manual

Typical rear I/O port similar to all their latest high-end boards. The most interesting though is the dual WiFi antenna connections to the far right.
