    Just Another P55 Pictures

    An EVGA P55 Motherboard, pretty Focused at Overclockin:



    Only 12 phase for VCore 300 to 1,100KHz.

    Dual Clock Generators, one right beside CPU, one below PCIE, Specialists.



    Slots:




    LGA775 mounting holes rotated slightly at 1degree, together with S1156 holes and socket in normal position



    F1 EE nice mount





    LICC (Low Inductance Ceramic Capacitors) used in socket cavity, same as ones used on intel cpus/chipsets, notice polar ends compared to typical MLCC




    PCIE Slot Disable Jumpers, which I find useful, this time cutting off Powergd signals to VGA Vregs for no VGA heat,
    so get your single card runs done first with second card's pot empty the whole time.




    Good old ECP support




    triple bios




    future fun

    Does it need any heat sinks or is it good to go since P55 runs so cool?

    Wicked stuff. Fun times ahead with these boards. You wil need a heatsink, although passive works fine on the ICH. More tweaker options on this board than any other so far.

    nice peter
    cant you guys make those PCIe jumpers into something more user friendly like slide on and off position or even using those jumpers that you can easily grab onto that have a bit of an extention facing up

    i like the look of that socket area. Prefer that over classi that has a socket close to the edge. i always fine that iceberg that sank the titanic on the edge of the board much like Giga X38/48 board did

    can you guys make a joystick based device instead of buttons on that red penal thingie

    it has to be tough enough if not many new users will be calling to say their pcie slots died.

    Well I figured there were more mobile phone users than Streetfighter players (though i play a crappy Ryu :P ) , plus the other time i was texting a friend while pouring LN2 and it felt so natural to me....

    It's the mainstream chipset and X58 is the high end. Just like X48 and P45, X38 and P35, etc...

    Why no heatsink on the PWM? Seems like a bad idea to me.

    im guessing its so the mobo has a biit more material in between the 2 socket mounts alowise there would be a danger it could break as it would be like tinnnnnny gap between them

    theres no gap, the holes will overlap into each other to form peanuts

    the socket is not rotated but the 775 mount holes are

    this board looks amazing, i love the all black look, this would look great in many of the newer builds that are hitting the scene, like the white murderbox mods and so on, technicaly what can you say, maybe, is there anything it doesnt have would be a better question.

    ive been feeling some love towards EVGA recently, this is the icing on the cake for me

    thanks for the pics

    Can you discuss the PCI-E bandwidth for each slot? Im hoping the widest bandwidth slots are furthest apart... so few companies get that right

    Thanks for sharing the pics

    they only have 16x pci-e2 coming from the CPU then 4x pci-e1 coming from the SB they cant do much with it, if u wanted more lanes for sli then u would need the nf200 but that chips is worthless for sli and just adds latency so its rather worthless to want more (and it wouldent make sense for intel since this is main stream and 3/4gpu would be high end)


    dose it have a header for a TPM chip next to the front panel header or is that for the ecp

    Hope the price is not soo high :p Looks really cool and I can't wait for some first testing results from sham. specially how the 8x/8x SLI/CF and bclk behaves and what RAM voltage is healthy.

    Got a beta sample here, early doors but some of the tweak options are gonna leave other vendors in the dust (P55 prodding and poking adultery).
