$119.99, not designed for the overclocker

Over the past few months, many Intel motherboard vendors have been curiously observing market demand for the new mainstream chipset platform set to replace the aging legacy of socket LGA 775. When it launched in September 2009, the Intel P55 platform based on socket LGA 1156 was released prior to the introduction of Core i5 and Core i7 compatible processors, allowing partners some additional time to release their P55-based designs in time for the launch of these CPUs.

looks like a good board if you don't overclock. Yes, another P55 board thread, but this one looks good for it's pricetag.

Why does that board look so barren?....Seems like it is missing some phases and something for the I/O

Still an amazing price for a P55 board. Add a I5 750 from microcenter for $150 and you are golden

It doesn't have massive heatsinks for the P55 or VRM as well.

Since there are 100-120 dollar P55 boards that will OC fairly well, this board doesn't really standout.

Guys if you think this looks bare wait until they start putting more stuff on the chip. Remember there is no north bridge on 1156 so that frees up some room.

Ewww. Electrolytic capacitors I haven't seen those used other than extremely low end boards, in a while.

Most boards are covered with them afaik except for the power delivery system. The only board's I know are server grade boards and this


Even this board



Is covered with them at it is $500

You should research "electrolytic capacitors". Hint: the P55-V has them, and the boards you linked don't.

Well I meant to say the traditional electrolytic capacitors, most boards nowadays use solid polymer capacitors. Usually they don't have any electrolyte fluid.

You've been looking at too many enthusist boards. Most board still use electrolyte fluid capacitors. (i.e. OEMs, entry/mid-range mobos)

Yeah i am sure everyone could have assumed he meant liquid caps when he said electrolytic. I love how people are so quick to say you must not know what you are talking about
