The motherboard or mainboard is the component that connects all the different parts of your computer. Often it has some integrated components like a sound card, enabling your computer to play sound, or a network card, to connect your computer to the network. The standard form factor (size) for motherboards is ATX, you need at least a midi-tower to fit one of those in. Micro-ATX motherboards are often more complete and have more onboard devices, like a video board and fit in smaller cases, but are generally less expandable.

Marketing text ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe

The official marketing text of ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe as supplied by the manufacturer
The ASUS AI Lifestyle motherboards are designed for Peace Quiet and Comfort. Those were great, but if you had something other than peace in mind, the P5N32-SLI Deluxe will suit you just fine. This mobo is for those who doesn't shoot for self-defense, who doesn't pass another car because one is late, and who despises mercy rules in sports. Challenge your system for the highest performance and be ready when the next graphics revolution comes with dual x16 PCI-Express SLI. Get tough, get competitive, get on top of the game and stay on top of the game.

ASUS two-slot thermal design (ASUS exclusive)
ASUS two-slot thermal design provides better air-flow and lower VGA cards temperature than other brans' one-slot design, which also ensures better system stability and longer component life cycle.

- The Asus is unique among the tested SLI boards in providing 3 slots between the x16 PCIe slots used for SLI. All of the other SLI boards provide 2 slots between the video cards. This will be an important feature for users who water-cool their video cards or have special cooling in mind for the pair of SLI cards.

- it offers two x16 PCIe slots, spaced far enough apart to accommodate even graphics cards with monstrous cooling solutions.

8 Phase Power Design
This is the ultimate power design with performance as its principle purpose. The 8-phase power builds a more steady power supply environment for the CPU and generates less heat than the conventional power design. Moreover, with this strong power pump, P5N32-SLI Deluxe can perform with better overclocking ability.

SATA on the Go (External SATA port on back I/O)
SATA on the Go designed for external SATA devices (ASUS exclusive)
The external SATA ports located at the back I/O provide smart setup, hot-plug and support up to 16 devices with port-multiplier functions. Easily backup photos, videos and other entertainment contents on external devices.
ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe supports the next-generation hard drives based on the Serial ATA (SATA) 3Gb/s storage specification, delivering enhanced scalability and doubling the bus bandwidth for high-speed data retrieval and saves.

AI Quiet
Be Quiet when you value quietness
With PCs serving as the entertainment centerpiece and playing a bigger role in our lives, quiet operation is in high demand. No one wants to hear the cooling fan spinning when watching a movie or listening to music.
The ASUS AI Quiet function (Intel EIST plus ASUS Q-FAN2 technology) dynamically controls CPU speed and reduces temperature and fan speeds when peace and quiet are what you desire. (Note: ASUS AI Quiet function requires Intel 600 series CPU with EIST function)

Fanless Design
Provide a cool environment without all the baggage
Cooling fans, though a popular thermal solution, also come with noise and malfunction likelyhood. ASUS Motherboard's fansless concept is specifically created to provide a cool environment without all the baggage.
ASUS has devoted special efforts to address the thermal issues across the motherboard, and most notably the areas that reside the CPU, power, VGA, Northbridge and Southbridge. The heat sinks and strategic board layout were tailor made to dissipate heat in the most efficient manner.

Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 / Celeron CPU
This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Pentium / Celeron CPU in LGA775 package with 1066/ 800/ 533MHz FSB, Hyper-Threading Technology and core-speeds up to 3.8GHz and beyond.

PCI Express Architecture
PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that will replace the existing PCI. With a bus bandwidth 4 times higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express x16 bus performs much better than AGP 8X in applications such as 3D gaming. PCI Express x1 also outperforms PCI interface with its exceptional high bandwidth up to 500MB/s. The high speed PCI Express interface creates new usages on desktop PCs e.g., Gigabit LAN, 1394b, and high-speed RAID systems.

Precision Tweaker
Designed for serious overclockers
It offers ways to raise system performance inch-by-inch and step-by-step to achieve maximum performance! This is about getting the most out of your machine, and taking pride in your customized computer.
Take control of how much power is going into the memory modules. ASUS gives you 8-step voltage control to the DIMM
vCore -
Find out "exactly" how much power your CPU needs. Fine-tune it with 0.0125 volts at a time!
SFS (Stepless Frequency Selection) allows

- Memory tuning from 533MHz up to 1200MHz at 1MHz increment
- PCI Express frequency tuning from 100MHz up to 150MHz at 1MHz increment.

Applications such as 3D games and video editing demand a huge chunk of system resource.
Inject "nitrous oxide" into your CPU! The patented AI NOS™ (Non-delay Overclocking System) technology intelligently detects system load and automatically boosts performance for the most demanding tasks. Unlike other dynamic overclocking techniques, AI NOS™ reacts much faster to satisfy your unending need for speeds .

PEG Link for dual VGA cards
Automatically gaming performance tuning for single/dual graphics cards
This latest technology, PEG (PCI Express Graphics) Link Mode, is a unique feature that enables users to boost graphics card performance for superior video quality.
PEG Link allows users to raise GPU and VGA memory throughput via the motherboard BIOS the same way system bus and memory bus are tweaked. PEG Link Mode enables powerful video performance on DX8 and DX9 applications. ASUS engineers carefully fine-tuned the parameters for every single PCI-Express card to provide system stability during high-speed graphics operation.

ASUS CPU Lock Free
The P5N32-SLI Deluxe offer the CPU Lock Free feature, which allows you to adjust CPU multiplier to 14x. The reduction of multiplier value provides more flexibility for increasing external FSB frequency to raise memory bus bandwidth. CPU Lock Free boosts overall system performance by making synchronous modification possible. Enjoy better performance at the same CPU operation speed and improve your system without pushing the CPU to the limit.

C.P.R.(CPU Parameter Recall)
When the system hangs due to overclocking failure, there is no need to open the case to clear CMOS data. Just simply restart the system, the BIOS would show the previous setting and then users can amend the CPU setting again.

Dual Gigabit LAN and AI NET 2
The integrated dual Gigabit LAN design allows a PC to serve as a network gateway for managing traffic between two separate networks. This capability ensures rapid transfer of data from WAN to LAN without any added arbitration or latency.
ASUS AI NET2 remotely detects cable connection the second you turn on the system, and any faulty connections are reported back up to 100 meters at 1 meter accuracy.

Smooth and efficient multi-RAID solution offer data protection and optimal data access
The NVIDIA nForce4 SLI Southbridge supports RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5, and JBOD span cross 4 of Serial ATA 3Gb/s and 4 of Parallel ATA drives, totally up to 8 drives for Multi-RAID function.
The Silicon Image Sil3132 controller offers 2 additional SATA 3Gb/s interfaces and allows RAID 0 and RAID 1 functions for best data security.

IEEE 1394
IEEE 1394 interface provides high speed digital interface for audio / video appliances such as digital television, digital video camcorders, storage peripherals & other PC portable devices.

ASUS Q-Fan2 technology intelligently adjusts both CPU fan and chassis fan speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation.

NVIDIA DualDDR2 for high performance memory support
NVIDIA DASP 3.0: The third-generation DASP 3.0 (dynamic adaptive speculative preprocessor) consists of pre-processors that are tasked to track data threads and pre-fetch the appropriate data. It has been re-architected for improved performance and lowest latency.
NVIDIA QuickSync : Designed to allow the use of the highest possible FSB and memory speeds without any negative impact on system performance. It features a patent-pending QuickSync synchronization technology that transfers memory requests and data between the FSB and memory clock domains in the shortest amount of time, thus maximizing system performance.
