ASUS P7P55D-E Deluxe Motherboard

Date: September 14, 2010
Product: P7P55D-E Deluxe - Intel Socket 1156
Company: ASUS
Author: Patrick Rader

Board Layout and Features (cont):

Moving up the right side of the board ASUS included a feature on the board called MemOK that allows for greater compatibility of memory. It will check the memory and try different voltages and timings to try to get your system to boot the memory. Of course it has to be DDR3 and fit in the slot. Next to it is the 24pin ATX connector which has plenty of room around it so you can easily unplug and plug it in without getting your fingers jammed around a bunch of other cables and a little further up the board is a header for a COM1 serial port and another 3 pin fan header.

The memory slots of the P7P55D-E Deluxe are something new to me. They only clip in from the top. The bottom of the slots have a stationary retention clip that doesn't move. It makes putting your memory in a little easier and to be honest it hold its in more securely than the two clip method. The slots are also color coded in black or blue to show the two different channels for running dual channel memory. Above the memory slots ASUS gives us overclockers even more control; they have three overvoltage switches that will allow you to crank up the DRAM, IMC, and CPU voltages well above the normal specs with these switches flipped.

Around the CPU socket we see some heatsinks that could almost pass for abstract art. Above them is the 8 pin connector. To the left of them is the Turbo EVO remote port, but more on that later and below those are two more 4 pin fan headers, one for the CPU and one for a chassis fan.

The board has ASUS' TProbe feature which will load the power equally across all the power phases. Finally, this brings us to the back of the board, which is pretty standard and it doesn't look like there are will be any clearance issues with any of the backplates for heatsinks.
