Asus is very much the leader in terms of computer mainboards, and always has been the first to come up with the latest technology. The Asus P5N32-SLI  Deluxe is one of the first mainboards dished out that comes with 40 lanes of PCI-Express lanes, thanks to the additional Intel Nforce 4 CK804 MCP that will provide an additional 20 lanes of PCI-Expess goodness.

The P5N32-SLI Deluxe features quite a bit of innovation courtesy of the efforts from the Engineers toiling in Asus’s Laboratories. Made to compliment Asus’s latest tag-line, "AiLife: lifestyle to personal computing", The P5N32-SLI Deluxe features heatpipes cooling for both chipsets, meaning there isn’t a single mechanical part within the mainboard. Apart from that, Asus has also effectively ported over their Stack Cool 2 Technology, which features an additional layer on the other side of the mainboard that helps components like the FETs(Field Effect Transistors) and the capacitors etc.

In addition, the Asus P5N32-SLI Deluxe also comes with an 8 phase power design, which will significantly sooth input/output current ripples as compared to the traditional 4 phase power design. This will bring about slightly lower temperatures and result in better overclocks too. The nice heatsinks covering the FETs deserves a honorable mention too, We’ll discuss this in detail in the later part of this article.
