EVGA is a company that is well known for its more enthusiast based motherboards and GPUs. They are also one of the only remaining NVIDIA-only GPU shops. However, they have moved on to use Intel chipsets in their products (especially considering that NV is in a legal battle with Intel over them).
So what does happen when you get a company like EVGA to tinker around with an Intel P55? Does the enthusiast mindset kill off "normal" performance? Or can you get a balance of normal and overclocked speed?
Well, we managed to get a hold of an EVGA P55 FTW motherboard to find out. So without all the usual fanfare let's dive right in and see what this $184.99 motherboard (thanks to big savings on Newegg right now with a $30 mail-in rebate) can bring to the table.
