ASUS P7P55 WS SuperComputer (P55 Express) Motherboard - The Box and What's Inside

We take a dive into an ASUS Workstation board complete with an 1156 Xeon to see how it holds up under pressure.

Package and Contents


The box the P7P55 WS SuperComputer arrived in was not too bad looking. It had a "13th Floor" look to it that I found cool. One thing I am becoming less of a fan of is the outer shell with an identical inner box. I agree that having that flap can clean up the packaging and allow more information, but it can be a tad much.




As you can see, under the flap is even more of the hard sell on the features of the P7P55 WS. We also want to bring the Tesla logo to your attention. This really does make the WS a SuperComputer if you drop three of these into the system.




More advertising on the box under that front flap.




The back of the box has a nice image of the board and a complete list of specs.




Inside the box you will find (after you buy one of course) a nice assortment of goodies. There is a three-way SLI bridge, a very long Crossfire bridge and a diagnostic module.




The diagnostic module has a pair of LEDs in addition to a power and reset button. It is a nice touch and allows for quick trouble shooting in the event of boot failures.
