1 out of 5 eggsP55 Classified 200 Motherboard

Pros: None yet. Came with a problem

Cons: Out of box, there was a problem. The IC's to the back of the board were already broken off and in the bag. Arent these things supposed to come with a foam pad to the back of the board to protect the IC's. will be sending it back

Other Thoughts: Hope when it comes back there is no problems this time around

5 out of 5 eggsA Really Nice Board

Pros: Lots of nice features. A gamers board for sure. Currently at dual SLI but this board is driving me to get my third EVGA 560Ti. The multiple bios is nice. Can play on one an leave your current settings alone (just in case things go bad). The sound is much better than I expected. Board installed and booted right up...tg. I have dealt with EVGA support and the response was quick and awesome.

Cons: Common.... One PCI slot for most sound cards..please. Oh well... You give and you take. Triple SLI price I pay. The provided USB card for a slot could have had slightly longer cables so I didnt have to wrap around the video card. I needed these USB slots. Optival fiber sound output would have been nice so my Tritons could have used the controller.

Other Thoughts: Dual channel memory boards seem to be getting harder to find.

5 out of 5 eggsEVGA P-55 Classified 200

Pros: This motherboard is a KA product and provides the user alot of room to grow. It worked perfectly right out of box and only change made used setting up the bois to work with the ram I got. It works like a dream and is very easy to OC, and the K boost is also nice.

Cons: It is large and you may need to get a new case. it has 6 vidio card slots and 1 pci x1 slot this may not allow you to install alot of extras. It was made to fly on games when fully populated with 4 VC.

Other Thoughts: This was may 1st build and it work as stated, this MB was build for a lower priced build compared to the X58. EVGA has great tech support and is very helpful with all question you may have. This is like any other part that you can by next week they will have the new and improved model out to replace it and tell you that it works so much better. I said that to say this the new P-67 is the new model that should replace this product. Hope this note was helpful to you and dont be worred about the latest and greatest if the unt will fit your needs.

2 out of 5 eggsCrossing my fingers

Pros: Beautiful motherboard

Cons: Worked for about 3 days then kicked the bucket

Other Thoughts: I sent it back for a replacement, and I believe that when it comes back in the mail, it will be one of the best motherboards I have bought in a long time.

I will write another review and a better rating, of course, once the replacement arrives.

5 out of 5 eggsVery stable, but a few minor things

Pros: This board has the better, hence price, 1156 socket. The CPU pins have 300% more gold - meaning that they will have better power delivery - the primary reason for buying this MB. EVGA F-T-W boards use the cheaper sockets, so beware of this if you plan on over clocking.

The switchable 3x BIOS is nice, but I rarely - if ever - use it. It's meant for over clockers - which I don't do. I prefer to run the voltages at their default state, this ensures your CPU temps stay nice and cool, thereby allowing for a longer life span of your rig.

So far, its been nothing but stable using an i5 750. I put a Noctua LGA 1156 after market cooler on this and idle temps run around 27c-28c with an ambient room temp of about 24c. Load temps range from (Adobe CS5) 32c to around 45c (spikes) running a big game. But they usually average around 38c under heavy load.

Cons: As others have stated, the voltage display doesn't work - at least on mine it only shows the CPU core 2 temp. But then I haven't needed to use this, so I could have overlooked something in the BIOS that would properly display this? No matter, it's not a big deal.

One thing that I discovered was if the quick boot is "ENABLED" expect the possibility to have SATA port errors. Once I disabled this, it takes a few more seconds for the BIOS to initiate, everything is seen and Windows 7 64bit runs smooth as silk.

Other Thoughts: Whatever you do with this board, just remember to disable the quick boot in the BIOS.

After I upgraded the hard drive to a Corsair P128 CMFSSD-128GBG2D 2.5" 128GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive, this board really slides through Win 7 64bit with little effort.

From the reviews I've read here on newegg about the memory slots failing, I have to think, how far have these individuals pushed the over clocking? While the i5 CPUs can be over clocked to the extreme, if you build your rig correctly, there really isn't any need to do so.

One of the biggest performance improvements can be had by getting a quality SSD and enabling the TRIM feature in Win 7.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this board.

If you are using Win 7, I would suggest letting Windows Update install the sound drivers. I have re-installed the OS 3 times using different hardware configurations and each time I installed the EVGA sound drivers, it seemed to make the sound distorted.
