Asus P7P55D-E LX
Released March, 2010
The Pros:Connecting most things is simple and straight forward. Positioning of the SATA drives is convenient, keeps it all up out of the way.
The Cons:Installation CD has a lot of useless software. Unstable and prone to crashes until flashed with the latest bios. Installation of the memory is a bit more involved than usual.
