ASUS P7P55D Premium
"ASUS launched nothing less than nine different socket 1156 motherboard models based on the new Intel P55 chipset. Today we are going to take a look on one that is currently the most expensive socket 1156 motherboard from this manufacturer, P5P55D Premium, which comes with SATA-600 ports, an impressive 32-phase voltage regulator circuit, an overclocking remote control, support for SLI and more."
"This board is ASUS’s most feature-rich P55 Express board with all of the features that came with the ASUS P7P55D Deluxe board but adding the new SATA 6 Gb/second interface, making it the board of choice for those wanting the most features on a new motherboard with this chipset. ASUS has really gone the extra mile with their performance, overclocking, and the inclusion of the TurboV Remote which is a great feature allowing tweaking of the board without going into the BIOS."
"As was the case with the ASUS P7P55D Deluxe, using the ASUS P7P55D Premium was a great experience. We were able to really push the overclocking envelope of our i5 750 CPU. If you plan to watercool, this would be a great motherboard to get your hands on, as it has the capability of pushing any current 1156 CPU past the limits of air-cooling. Coupling this motherboard with an upcoming Intel i3 CPU should result in some impressive clock speeds!"
"With the advent of Intel releasing the LGA 1156 socket ASUS has launched nothing short of 17 different socket 1156 motherboards based on the newer P55 chipset. We decided to take this time to look at one of the more elite socket 1156 motherboards from ASUS, the P7P55D featuring SATA III, SLI and Crossfire, a remote for overclocking and a 48 Hybrid Phase cooling design."
"When it comes down to price, I would have to give the edge to the P7P55D-E Pro. Its feature set and performance are a match for the P7P55D Premium, but it just can't reach the same clock speeds with the stability I require, most likely due to the difference in the power circuits. Both boards are are full featured boards - each with a little something special."
Representing the new ASUS P7P55D-E series, this motherboard supports USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s. It uncovers the potential of these controllers without limiting other interfaces. ASUS P7P55D-E Premium justifies its top-class nature, offering corresponding features, quality, as well as power and cooling systems.
"While much of Intel's world has been thrown into a tizzy by the Q1'2011 Intel P67/H67 chipset recall (initial B2 stepping only), we thought it timely to look in on Intel P55 motherboards from ASUS that offer some of the bells and whistles of Intel P67 platforms, with none of the bad recall aftertaste. The ASUS P7P55D-E Pro is one such board to consider, this review is going to focus on its nearly identical twin, the P7P55D Premium. We'll touch on TurboV Evo, Hybrid Phase, ExpressGate, MemOK, EPU, Fan Xpert and Stack Cool 3+..."
