Summary: I purchased this motherboard to compliment an I7-870k processor, around a year ago. The board is very reasonably priced, and comes from one of the most trustworthy oem manufacturers available, ASUS. The mobo, while a bit dated, brings a slew of exceptional features to the table above and beyond what one could expect for $100.
Summary: Relatively easy installation and setup. Fairly clear and straightforward instructions for basic setup. Instructions could be more complete for more advanced setup. Overall though, excellent mobo.
Summary: This board was part of a 4GB 1600mhz ram, i5-750 cpu bundle. It's been running about 12 hrs a day for the past 2 months without any problems. I love the overclocking. Set bios for normal, better, or turbo performance, tell it to test settings, and it auto adjusts cpu and memory clocks for max performance. It bumped my i5 up to 3.3ghz- VERY fast, but I had to slow down the cpu clock to 3GHz to cool it down a bit since I'm still using the stock Intel fan.
Summary: Good Motherboard. worked liked a charm and the features on it are pretty cool, the express gate is surely something useful, at least for me when I want to do a quick check of my mail and get out without having to boot up the operating system. The other features include OC software which I have't tried yet but looks easy to use.
Summary: Asus has several versions of this board depending on your needs. This is one of the basic versions. I've used Asus boards for years and they always included back chassis adapters for serial port, firewire and digital audio, but none of those are included here - just the MB connector for each. There is also no support for a floppy drive. If you still use them, you'll need to use an external USB floppy drive.
brilliant buy for any i5 system, if you want sli or crossfire tho, avoid

Excerpt: I recently purchased this motherboard along with an i5 750, and 2 sticks of crucial's ballistix ddr3 memory. I have seen massive improvements over my old core 2 duo set up, and would very much recommend this motherboard to anyone trying to build a computer for standard use, or for gaming under a budget. it features everything you would expect from a motherboard, and looks very slick with a blue and black colour scheme.
Excerpt: P7P55D är ett moderkort från ASUS som är baserat socketen 1156, vilken används huvudsakligen av intels i5 processorer, men även deras i7 8xx serie. Jag köpte detta för ganska exakt 1000 kronor, och det var det absolut värt för att få ett stabilt och snyggt kvalitetsmoderkort. Hårdvaru-stöd På moderkortet finns 2 stycken 2.0*16x PCIe platser, tyvärr kan P55 chipet bara köra ett grafikkort i x16, om du ska ha två stycken körs dom i x8 båda två.
