First question - is one available!? :confused:

Second question, which is best? I would want to run a 3.2Ghz+ Intel P4 processor with it (using Zalman 7000 cpu cooler.)

Hope someone can help. :)

Cheers,

Steve

I've got an ASUS P4P800-VM and it's great so far.

Or the Asus P4R800 using a ati chipset, the only difference between this and the p4p800-vm above and a full size asus p4p800 board is that they dont have any ability to overclock if that matters.

I'm using a P4P800, 2.6 800fsb P4 with a Thermalright SP94 cooler, very quiet.

Yeah good point John, I got a P4R800 by mistake at first, it seems the same as the P4P800, except it has onboard VGA but doesn't have SATA - swings and roundabouts really.

My P4P800 with a 3GHz P4 (with zalman 7000 Cu) would be silent if it weren't for the incredibly disappointing samsung spinpoint SATA drives, they're whiny as hell :(

I too have the P4P800-VM. Very nice board, does have onboard VGA but does not have fan temp control on board unfortunately. Neither does it have gigabit LAN like it's big brother.

I've a P4C800 - Deluxe myself, and just built 3 for work based on the P4C800E Deluxe. No problems so far, apart from it refusing to talk to a Sony DVD combo drive.

All are using 3.2 P4s, Zalman 7000 AlCu coolers and Corsair 3200LL matched pair memory.

Thanks for the responses guys. Looks like it's going to be an Asus mobo then!
