Asus P5N-T Deluxe 780i Motherboard
Packaging and Package
As usual, Asus have done a decent job of packing the P5N-T Deluxe. Their AI Lifestyle range are a little more subtle in the approach to box art than a lot of other manufacturers and everything looks professional and informative.
Plenty of detail and information has been put onto the box to ensure that you know what you're buying before you pick it up off the shelves...if indeed you physically pick it up!
Inside the packing is a little haphazard with a not much protection from the elements going on. The board should be absolutely fine in there but it's just not quite as good as some of the top-line boards in that respect.
The P5N-T Deluxe is pretty well catered for as far as the package is concerned. You get:
* User Manual
* Driver CD (not shown)
* Fan for heatpipes
* IO Backplate
* Molex to Dual-SATA power converter
* Asus EZ Motherboard Connecters
* 3-way SLI bridge
* Extra long SLI bridge
* 6 x SATA cables
* HDD IDE cable
* FD IDE cable
The package is nice, but falls a little short of the extras packaged with the P5E3 Deluxe, which is a little disappointing. Still, I did mention that you may not use some of these bits and pieces last time, and the cost does seem to reflect the slightly reduced bundle.
Onto the board itself.
