ASUS P5B Premium Vista Edition Motherboard Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Extra Features

What is hot about this motherboard is its extra features not found on motherboards from other brands.

The first thing that is different on this motherboard is its power LED. At one of the corners of the board there is an ASUS logo that is lit in blue when the motherboard is in stand-by mode (i.e., system turned off but power supply power switch turned on) and changes its color to red when the system is turned on. You can see this on Figures 8 and 9. We took these pictures with our motherboard outside a case, so when assembled in a case the logo should bright more, as the chassis will reflect more light back to the logo.

This motherboard comes with a good array microphone, which can be seen in Figure 11.

It also comes with a remote control, where you can control remotely your media player, turn your PC on/off, launch applications, etc.

But what is really special about this motherboard is its LCD display, ScreenDuo.
