Solid, Stable and Capable,
This review is from: Intel LGA1156/Intel P55/DDR3/SLI&CrossFireX/A&GbE/ATX Motherboard, Retail BOXDP55WG (Personal Computers)
Stable, Intel reliability. This board posted on first try. Win7 64 installed without a hitch. Have been running this for months now with no issues whatsoever.
Basic no-frills board but with some surprising extras like SPDIF audio, onboard diagnostic LED readout and external bios reset button. Paired this with a Core i5-750 (running stable at 3.6 Ghz), a ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED CPU cooler and 4 gigabytes of G.SKILL DDR3 1600 RAM (1.5V for P55 chipset compatibility). This makes for a powerful and quiet Digital Audio Workstation though I'm using it for photo editing and DVD encoding as well with excellent results! This combo has been no slouch for gaming either with a EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX+ video card. High frame rates at 1920 x 1080 for Fallout 3 and TES4!
My dayjob is I.T. and I am currently building a couple of CAD-CAM stations with this board for my workplace and highly recommend it.
I've been building my own PCs for a couple of decades now and have found an Intel Processor/Motherboard combo makes for the best stability and reliability.
