Motherboard not work as it should work

I bought this ASUS motherboard pk5 with quad core processor.
1st i got the problem that i bought a alien case with 700 watt power supply.
It was mad wrong that time.
Now i am using ultra 500 watt power supply.Its working but its not working like it should be.
my configuration is quad core q6600, OCZ dual chanel 800 Mhz (2 X 2) = 4 gb memory, Ati readon 9250 -256 Mb memory card, WD 400 GB HDD . And I,m using vista ultime 32 bit. But its not working properly. Like its not so speedy computer.It works but very normal like my other p4 computer does.
Is this is a motherboard problem or something else.

Is this the 1st time your using Vista? Vista currently runs very slow. Vista service pack 1 or SP1 is addressing those issues. SP1 is due out at the end of the month if i remember correctly. I'm running the beta SP1 and it fixed alot of my slow issues.

One thing you can do to compare your pc to others is download PCMark and run a test. It will compare your stats to other computers to give you an idea if your computer is slower than normal or not.

You can also try a vista built in benchmark called Winsat. Go to control panel, then Performance information and tools, then click on the advanced tools, then click Generate a system health report.

Hope this info helps!

Asus rampage 2 extreme no beeps on first boot, does not enter post, i.e nothing shows up on screen, with the 8 pin power connector in the motherboard the pc will boot then shutdown for 2 seconds and reboot...


1 - Test the memory in another pc; if it's at fault change it completely.
2 - That 8 pin connector is there to provide extra power to the processor sources - either one or more of them are fried = replace motherboard or the processor itself is gone =  test it in another pc and replace it if necessary.
