    Is it only me that's like ????? Only one question comes into mind? WHYYY? Design (and naming i55) also reminds me of Biostar with a slight touch of colorscheme from EVGA. Not saying I dislike it, I'm just so confused, it doesn't make any sense, they got full range covered for P55 already and this is really an oddball. But what's offered looks very reasonable if price is right but it's definitely not any real highend board, more like mid-to-high, something there between 150 ~ 180 EUR.

    But what it really looks to be about is this "TUF"-design, what does that short form stand for?

    This reminds me of that super ugly "military" board that looked exactly like this one (those colors).

    I pass on this one

    if it performs is all that counts for me... looks are subjective anyway...
    Question : Why do some overclockers switch into d*ckmode when money is involved

    Remark : They call me Pro Asus Saaya yupp, I agree

    GPU reviews have been on hold for the last two months since I wanted some quality time trying out Windows 7 in order to decide when we should make the transition.

    As for this board, as long as it isn't another one of ASUS' technology demonstrators instead of a real board, I am sure we are TUF enough.

    i can only assume that this board was built for maximum longevity, my hope is that will result in excellent overclocking longevity. or perhaps this board is better suited for sub-zero duties.....

    the LOL series apparently has the caps and chipsets etc at the back of the board so all you see is the cpu socket, memory and pci-e
    did i just say that? i was just thinking aloud

    no, you got it all wrong, the LOL series has the cpu socket and pciE slots and memory slots on the backside of the board! ^^

    I think its difficult to determine the purpose or target audience for this board with only two screenshots, and I think that also makes it difficult to pass judgement on the board at the moment. Obviously I cant comment on the performance of the motherboard, but I at least see the color scheme in a positive light. I think the market at the moment has a sufficient amount of black and red, or black, white and blue colors schemes for motherboards. Its refreshing to see a change in this trend, although I'm not everyone is a fan of this color scheme, I reckon there are some in the modding community who will appreciate it. I don't particularly agree with the choice of heatsinks though, they seem a daft really, kind of a try hard sci-fi theme, not sure what ASUS were aiming at. But then again, I guess you could always just remove them!

    When spoken, the exclamation marks are to be delivered with a stiff karate chop to the cranium. This aids adoption by promoting a sizeable reduction in frontal lobe brain cells.

    I think they picked them up off gamer tags btw..

    later

    BTW, I do like the appearance of the board though (aside from the rogue orange coloured SATA connecter). It's hard to come up with anything new really. This is a little different and as with all things, perhaps an acquired taste.

    looks like a lovechild of Biostar and EVGA.

  24. #24
    looks like one of P7P55-series boards just with different color scheme and a lot of PR slogans attached

    feature1:
    so, they deliberately made P7P55 heatsinks so crap so that they can come up later and say "we have it improved" ?

    feature2:
    no way, you can't place a fan on the mems on a regular board. this is so goood, thanks asus
