Comments

We had very few issues with setting up the P7P55D-E Pro. We had a minor problem with the Hyper 212+ cooler we use due to the cramped upper-left mounting hole and an issue with posting with RAM in the black slots. In the end we had to use the light blue ones; when we contacted ASUS we were told that was by design and not an issue with the board. I looked in the manual for the board and did finally find a diagram that shows this, but it is not over clear and as many people do not read the manuals, this may be something that is easily overlooked.
