EVGA 120-LF-E651-RX LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Intel P55
  • Core i7 / i5 / i3 / Pentium (LGA1156)
  • DDR3 1600

4 out of 5 eggs Many features, small package. 01/19/2012

This review is from: EVGA 120-LF-E651-RX LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

This micro-ATX motherboard holds a lot of features for it's small size: The 1156 slot means it can hold the new quad core- i series generation of Intel CPUs which is nice for new builds. The 4 RAM slots means you can fit a ton of memory into it and it is SLI capable.

Cons:

The BIOS is very restricting. NO overclocking the CPU at all, that feature does not exist. So if you are looking to overclock your CPU this is not the mobo you want. Also it does not have regular PCI slots, just the PCI-expressx1 which is no good if you have components from a previous build that require that.

Other Thoughts:

If you are planning on running SLI with a larger GPU (one that takes up two expansion slots, so 4 total), you probably won't be able to fit anything comfortably into the PCIx1 expansions slots. It would probably only accommodate 2x smaller GPUs (such as Geforce 9800s for example). Also, (problem I ran into) this mobo only accepts SATA, NO IDE, so if you are upgrading an older system make sure you have SATA components or a way to reclaim data from an IDE source. It was my dumb mistake, I am only docking the rating one egg due to the lack of overclocking/restricted BIOS.
