As you can see, the P5Q Deluxe sports a passive, all copper cooling system, very similar to the P5E3 series of boards. It's got three physical PCI Express x16 slots, dual PCIe x1 slots, and a pair of PCI slots. Audio duties are handled by an ADI HD codec, and the I/O backplane is loaded with six USB 2.0 ports, dual LAN jacks, a PS/2 mouse or keyboard port (notice the two-tone colored port), digital and analog audio outputs, Firewire, and eSATA.
If you look between the second PCI and PCIe x16 slots, a flash memory card is visible, which features the "Express Gate", Linux-based mini-OS we told you about here.
We haven't fired the board up just yet, but will be soon. Once we're done with testing, we'll be publishing a full review, so stay tuned. Something tells us that new 65nm northbridge is going to fun to overclock.
