i havent had to contact them yet about anything...
but i do agree that the cooling is better...
and it has solid capacitors, and it has 16 phase (deluxe does, pro has 8 phase)...

I can say that from my experience. I own a Biostar p45 and it has been great. I know that ASUS is focusing on "green tech" right now and not on performance. I'm not saying ASUS is bad, but right now Biostar's boards are better.

Toms Hardware was only able to get the P5Q-E to 525mhz which is significantly slower for than the 612mhz I have seen in reviews of the I45 much less the 675mhz record.

im not saying that the biostar is bad, i almost bought one myself....it was a tough decision between that and asus. what sold me was the expressgate feature (which rocks thanks guru) and the 8 phase (on my pro) and 16 phase (on my deluxe). most people will say, "meh...that doesnt make a difference..." well, it does. certainly when you are way overclocked and coming off a full load, it helps.
but what im saying is that you guys seem to think (and so does newegg apparently) that joe blow is going to buy this mobo and hit a 600+ FSB. it aint gonna happen like that. typical results will be very close to the same i BET. i have YET to see anyone that isnt a website reviewer hit that high on the biostar...ie no normal overclockers like us. im not saying they arent there, i just havent seen them.
zmatt i know what you mean....you want to recommend what you own and know works, i feel the same way.

Well we can agree to disagree. Really I need to grab me a Xigmatek cooler and go farther. I know I can hit 4ghz with 410fsb and 1.350 voltage. That would be a new personal record.

I can boot at 600mhz


but yes they are both great boards....in fact I was going to buy the Biostar but got drunk and unexpectedly ordered a P5Q and Q6600 :/

Nothin I regret though, it's a great board and will last me til Nehalem is affordable....so a good 4-6 months I suppose?
