Asus P7P55D Premium Review

Last week we had a look at the ASUS P7P55D Deluxe motherboard. Today we put its big brother, the P7P55D Premium on the hot seat.

One of the biggest differences between the Deluxe and Premium are the number of Phases in the VRM design. While the Deluxe had a 16+3, the Premium is 32+3. Add in the T.Probe, which monitors the load and temperatures of the VRM, and you have a monster that will be sure to handle just about any overclocking you could dream of throwing at it! With the T.Probe, ASUS considers this design as a 48 Hybrid Phase.

Other changes include a pair of SATA 6Gb/s ports. Have a look below at the key features of this motherboard
