Summary: I used this board to replace my stock cg 5275 asus system board. That board was an equivilant of a p7h55m. This board was so much better in comparison. I have never overclocked anything till I received this board and this thing makes it automatic. It is really nice. Also supports sata 6 gb/s and has usb 3.0. I have only had this in for a week but absolutely no regrets. I run with a intel i5 650 clarksdale with 12 gb gskill ripjaw at 1333.
Summary: Great board overclocks really easy. Looks great and is rock solid so far. has plenty of space for a second video card and it took my 8gb gskill ram just fine. has plenty of fan connectors as well as plenty of sata hook ups.
Summary: The Intel P55 platform has been with us for a good while now, and it is a real sleeper, having the memory controller integrated with the CPU gives it a nice performance advantage over competing products, even higher priced ones. If it has any serious shortcomings, it's the number of PCI-e lanes that it supports. With a maximum of 16 lanes of PCI-e 2.0 available for graphics cards, there is no room for expansion, if additional devices require PCI-e 2.0 connectivity.
Summary: It has been about 10 years since I last built a computer and was a little nervous that I would forget something but the instructions that came with the motherboard was so helpful. The pictures were easy to see and understand and the descriptions of how to install all the parts are described very well. Pros: Easy installation, great instructions, and very solid performance. Cons: None so far.
Summary: I used this board in a build I did six months ago and wanted to wait to see how things worked out before posting anything. The board is nicely designed and easy to use, even for 61 year old guys who get a little stressed when building a pc. Very easy to see the labeling on the board, in contrast with my last build with an Asus board that was a nightmare in seeing labels for connections. Absolutely no problems in six months of use.
Great Features and Great Overclock with this board!

Summary: This motherboard is great! Price finally came down recently, decided to upgrade and bought this board after I did alot of research on other boards out there. I really wanted this board for my i7 875k processor which is unlocked, now with this board I can use this processor to it's full potential. The main thing that I wanted to do with this board other than a simple solid overclock, was to retain power saving features and turbo boost while maintaining a stable overclock.
Summary: I decided to build a 'high end' workstation with a board that had features that would allow me to grow into the future. this board had good reviews and i especially liked the packaged software that lets me know what is going on inside the pc. with an i5 processor and 4gb(plan going up 4 more)performance is more than adequate for my needs. i do not overclock so standard cpu cooling works fine, especially with the 3 fans that came with my case.
Summary: I have had Asus MB's before with success but this board bests them all. I upgrade systems about every 2 years and when I wanted to go to a i-Core 5 or 7 I began the hunt for a MB. I came across this board actually via Amazon reviews and then continued to explore. This is the board I ended up with. It matches the outstanding reviews given by people who are using it.
Summary: If you want a lot of features at a reasonable price tag this board is for you. USB 3.0, SATA 6 GB/sec, DDR3, all with great utility software you can't beat it.
