The LGA 1156 Core i5 and i7 processors have taken the market by storm since their release, and there have been more than a few entries into the motherboard arena to accommodate them. We have seen everything from entry level to mainstream, micro ATX to full ATX, all the way up to enthusiast level boards of all shapes, sizes and price ranges. It’s hard to sort through all of the choices and decide which are worth their price and which just don’t have what it takes. One thing is for certain, the race for the P55 motherboard supremacy is going to be a long road.



As with any new processor release, the big manufacturers are always sure to get their boards out to the public in record fashion. This can lead to boards that feel rushed in design and just don’t seem to offer much in the way of outstanding performance with eye catching features. Though this has seemed to be the philosophy for many manufacturers, there is one that always seems to get out their best boards quickly and manage to just wow anyone and everyone. Nobody can deny the proven performance that comes from the EVGA camp.


The EVGA P55 FTW motherboard is part of the For The Win series that we have all come to know and respect. The EVGA P55 FTW brings to the table an excellent feature set with proven performance to back it up. Full support of 2 way SLI, overclocking control panel support, onboard CMOS reset, triple BIOS, and full energy conserving 12 phase power design all demonstrate the level of quality and features we have come to know and respect from EVGA and the FTW series of hardware.
