ASUS P5AD2-E Premium

@ 2004/12/27
The P5AD2-E is ASUS’ latest board based on the i925XE chipset, sporting official support for the Intel 1066MHz CPU. Feature rich and solid performance should keep this motherboard on your short list if you are an Intel fan.

The airflow created by the CPU fan also cools the surrounding MOSFETs, capacitors, and the northbridge chipset. Obviously when you remove the CPU cooler, as we do when we use our Koolance water cooling setup on all reviews, those components mentioned above do not get the specified cooling.
Another way to put it:
I am not down playing w/c, I'm just saying other components need cooling too and w/c does not provide cooling to everything needed.

Or, say it differently ....
I love AMD but I'm also in love with HyperThreading; you see I don't play game too much since I got married. Besides, after the promotion at work, I found out that I hyperthread a lot myself wearing more than one hat at any given time.

Prescott is still the hot Mama.
