ASRock P55 Deluxe3 S1156 Motherboard Review

Motherboards/Intel S1156 by stefan @ 2010-07-13

ASRock have redesigned their ´old´ P55 series to include SATA III and USB 3.0 and this way they made them future proof, at least in terms of connectivity; the performance of the P55 Deluxe3 board is decent and has no problem at all reaching 4GHz with an i5 750 CPU.

At first I would like to thank ASRock for making this review possible by offering me their P55 Deluxe3 Motherboard for testing and reviewing!

Comment from Oery @ 2010/07/15
Regarding your Asrock P55 Deluxe3 review;
I'm just curious:
1. Your board have Bios v1.41, mine still v1.40. I can't find v1.41 at Asrock site. Please send me download link to latest Bios.
2. I can't pass Burn In Test at 4.0GHz. Stable only at 3.6GHz. My cooler is Thermolab Bada in Azza Helios 910 cage. If you don't mind, can you post all Bios Setting or send me your OC DNA.
I apologized for my English...... and thanks for great review.

Dear Oery,

The board I have tested was sent by ASRock with the BIOS 1.41, I did not downgrade with the version on the internet, but I am very sure they will upload even a newer version that I did the tests on.

Overclocking is also very dependent on how good your CPU is. Mine was stable at VCore 1.38 and CPU VTT 1.3. I have also set the VMem at 1.65.

Be sure to set the option "Without VDrop" in the BIOS and leave the CPU Thermal Throttling on Enabled, disable SpeedStep and so on.

Many thanks for the appreciation regarding the review.
