The guys at HardOCP have taken the new Asus P5N-E SLI motherboard for a test run

However, there are a few areas of improvement that became more apparent during the overclocking test runs. My biggest complaints center on the board cooling mechanisms, or lack thereof. The northbridge passive chipset cooler was barely adequate for stock running, but quickly became too hot to handle when any overclocking was attempted. This was easily remedied with a low speed fan. The southbridge also suffered from heat issues, more so due to the fact that ASUS chose not to cool this chipset furnace. Again, the addition on an active cooling solution easily solved this problem.
