Default Asus P5K3 Premium part 2

The performance in 2D testing favours slightly better in the way of the Premium, and even at 1,500MHz it doesn't really extend the lead that much. Also, it's not like you can't just buy some 1,500MHz memory and drop it in a Deluxe, however it seems to be tailored more to preferring lower latency memory like the 1,066MHz DDR3 at 6-6-6-15 instead of 1,333MHz at 7-7-7-20.

Overclocking is not outright superb, although it is certainly capable and stability is much the same story. In all it feels like a very average board for Asus and one just not worthy of the price tag: it can be had for 140 more than an already expensive product combination, it only comes with a three year warranty on the memory and if just one of the 32 chips go the whole board has to be returned. Hats off for the innovation and having the balls to make a product like this, but I wonder if Asus will actually sell enough to recoup at least the development costs? I think this should be chalked down to "nice effort, but stick to what you're good at".
