Conclusion

Obviously one motherboard isn't going to outperform another by a huge amount, but there are almost always performance differences. Almost as important as these differences in performance are the board's layout and features. To me, layout is actually more important than performance. If I was offered two boards, one with a great layout and one that was a complete mess, only the messy board performed better, I'd still take the board with the nice layout.

The P7P55D Deluxe is not a board I'd pass up because of a faulty layout. Just looking at the board, you can tell that Asus put a lot of thought into the design. The funny thing is, Asus is not embarrassed to let you know this. Right on the box is Asus's "Xtreme Design" Logo. This is not a criticism – I believe that the P7P55D Deluxe deserves this logo on the box. It's got just about everything you could want. You want to overclock in Windows? BAM! Asus gives you TurboV and the TurboV remote. You want a board that is hard to kill with static? BAM! Asus gives you anti-EMI diodes. You want a motherboard that runs cooler and lasts longer? BAM! Asus gives you the Stack Cool 3+ technology and uses Xtreme Durable Capacitors rated at 5000 hours of run time. Asus even went as far as to make sure the entire motherboard was symmetrical. Don't believe me? Take a look at how the memory modules align with the CPU socket. It's almost as if the designers just hit the "center" button, only it worked in the real world. Asus also included the nifty MemOK! button.

The P7P55D Deluxe offers more than just cool features. Its performance was great, and it offered delicious overclockability. I can't think of a single con for this board. With that being said, I'd recommend this board to anyone wanting to utilize the new LGA 1156 socket. Great job, Asus!
