When people think of energy efficiency they may have the misconception that it has to equate to a lack of power and excitement. In terms of automobiles, perhaps thinking that all hybrids are like a Prius. But what we have with the P5K PRO is a sporty, high performance model that just happens to have a smart design capable of saving energy. - The Review
That is definitely a strange place to put the main ATX power connection. Perharps, seeing as this motherboard is advertised as green, this placement is more efficient in terms of power (less circuits, etc.)?
Excellent review Thank you. The only thing that may be an error and I am only 95% certain of this as my board hasn't come in yet. In your description of the audio connections you describe the SPDIF /Optical connection as being the rca type plug near the ps/2 connections. I think you will find that that is a Digital Coaxial connector and the SPDIF/Optical is the black 1/8' sized connector in the audio array. The Digital Coaxial connector will give you a digital PCM audio with Dolby and the spdif will give you Dolby Digital Pro sound (Digitally Discrete channels). The difference for the audio and home theater enthusiast is significant.
