Summary: Although its a bit outdated now, I love this board. I have been working it like a dawg for 2 years now. Not a problem at all. I can multitask several different things at once. I play all the new games, even still 2 years later. It has many EVGA overclocking abilities. I am very impressed with Evga products,and no I don't work for them, lol.
Summary: Extremely pleased with the product. Still exploring all of the possibilities at this point as I have not had as much time as I'd like to work on this build, but so far it's blowing away the Gigabyte (should have been BITE) that it succeeded. Looking for quick evidence of a quality piece of equipment? Just check out the I/O cover plate and compare it to that of other manufacturers in the same price range. Is it as cooling looking as an MSI?
Summary: I recently upgraded my computer from a Core 2 Duo with an ASUS P5W DH Deluxe motherboard to this EVGA motherboard with the Intel Core i7 870 2.93GHz Quad-Core LGA1156 Desktop Processor and OCZ Technology Gold Series PC3-10666 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) Low Voltage Dual Channel Kits OCZ3G1333LV8GK . I am so pleased with everything, especially with this motherboard. It took me quite awhile to decide whether I was going to purchase this motherboard or not.
Summary: I have mixed feelings about the EVGA P55 series in general. I first started with the P55 FTW board and ran into issues installing Windows 7. Luckily with the help of the EVGA forum community, I was able to figure out that the Intel SpeedStep feature was causing my BSODs. Updating to the latest BIOS and drivers didn't help, so I eventually returned that board.
Summary: Picked mainly due to wanting a consistent visual look inside a cm690II advanced case. Chosen over a gigabyte motherboard, happy in the end. This board has a lot of LED's, including a pulsing evga logo, for those of you who have a window. This board also features an error code/cpu temp readout screen... helpful on evga's forums if you run into a problem. As for the aforementioned double boot, there was mention that newer bios files have eliminated this.
Summary: I researched current P55 motherboards for over a month before deciding to purchase the EVGA P55 SLI. I used tech site reviews, motherboard forums and my own personal needs to make my decision. The P55 SLI met my needs and was reasonably priced for the feature set it provides, but more importantly (to me) what it leaves out. There are NO onboard headers for IDE or floppy drives (two almost dead interfaces), which is something I was looking for in a new motherboard.
Summary: This board is just awesome. Rock solid components and a name to trust for value and reliability. No manufacturer is perfect, but EVGA does care for it's customers, unlike other companies. I've had no problems. Only some minor quirks but nothing at all bad. 1st, I'm typing this on an i5 4GB eVGA P55 SLI that is overclocked to over 4GHz on air and is rock stable. I also have a GTX295 that is overclocked and this board does not blink twice with that beast installed.
