ASUS P7P55D Deluxe Motherboard (Intel P55 Express) Preview - The Box and What's Inside

Before any Lynnfield processors make their way to the market, we have ASUS' P7P55D LGA1156 based motherboard in hand for a look over today.

While we can't give much away on the performance of the board, we have been given the ability to show you the board itself and what you get with it. ASUS has gone for the traditional blue box design that they now put all their Intel based boards in. On the front it's very plain. What you can notice is that ASUS doesn't actually have the chipset logo or the processor logos on this board yet, which means there may be some name changes.

On the back of the box ASUS has put a few marketing bits and pieces together. However, a lot of the space is taken up by the colour photo of the board and a full spec listing of the features and supported functions. This is a big plus, as you'll know full well what you are getting without having to open the box.

For a Deluxe board ASUS has gone a bit lighter on the additional documentation. The user manual that is included for the board is well up to the usual ASUS standard; very large and thick with explanations of the hardware and software included on the single DVD which has Windows XP and Vista drivers for both 32-bit and 64-bit OS's.

The accessories are also pretty light with only what you need provided. There are a total of six SATA data cables as well as one IDE cable. ASUS also provides EZ-Connectors to help you connect the case panel switches as well as including an SLI bridge cable. Lastly, there is a USB/FireWire PCI cover bracket expansion port.

Last on the accessories list is the Turbo-V Evo controller. This allows you to adjust BLCK, voltages and ratios with just a click of a button.
