EVGA P55 FTW (P55 Express) Motherboard - Test System Setup and Comments

In making a debut to our motherboard section, we have EVGA's P55 FTW overclocking board up on the bench today. Let's see what it can do.

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, AMD, Kingston and Cooler Master and Sceptre.

 

The EVGA P55 FTW is a nice looking board. It was also very easy to get setup and configured. The dual 12-Volt Aux connectors were a tad tough to get connected, but not too terribly bad.

 

The driver installation was a snap.... well, almost a snap. We ran into a minor issue with SATA DVD-ROMs. We found that the P55 FTW is very picky about them. We ended up needing to buy two more to eventually find one that worked. The others would show up, then disappear during access. It was very frustrating to say the least.

 

Other than the SATA DVD-ROM issue and the inability to manually enter voltages, I actually liked the P55 FTW and the way it is laid out.
