P55 Asus P7P55D Deluxe

Asus package their P7P55D in a blue reflective box which has plenty of information on the features under a flap. Inside we find a decent bundle which as always includes items such as the Q-Shield and Q-connectors. Also included is a small control device which allows us control of overclocking without entering the BIOS.

Considering the P7P55D Deluxe is not the top enthusiast board from Asus it is surprising to see such an eye-catching design. The large chipset cooler and power circuitry heatsinks both have a fancy design with the former lighting up when powered on. With regards to fan connectors the board is a little lacking with only three system fan headers but otherwise it does not disappoint. The slot layout for example is very good and offers PCIE 16x, PCIe 1x, PCIe 1x, PCIe 8x, PCI, PCIe 4x, PCI. Sitting below these we find onboard power and reset buttons along with two headers for Firewire and two for USB.

Down at the bottom left of the board we find the SATA connectors, there are nine on this product. Further up the PCB we find the 24pin power connector and like the Maximus III Formula this sits beside a MemOK! button. Press this and the board auto-configures to stable settings for the installed modules. The P7P55D allows us to select up to 1600MHz as standard and then higher with X.M.P. modules and profiles in addition to overclocking.

External connectivity is very thorough on this board and starts with PS/2 which sits alongside a clear CMOS button. There are eight USB ports, two GB-LAN, firewire, and optical/coaxial and analogue connectors for the 7.1 audio. ESATA can be added by installing the bundled bracket.


It is the standard, excellent, Asus BIOS which is installed on the P7P55D Deluxe. All of the usual features such as EZ-Flash are available, as is Express Gate. A new addition to this particular board is the OC Tuner. By selecting this the system reboots and goes through a series of tests while changing the multiplier, BCLK, memory and voltages. It finds a stable overclock and then reports it to the user. On our 750 CPU the result was 168×20 (3.37GHZ) and on the 870 our board configured to 161×21 (3.38GHz).
