The EVGA P55 LE is built with the new Intel® P55 Express Chipset, supporting the Intel® Core™ i5 and Intel® Core™ i7 processors in the all new LGA1156 package. The revolutionary two-chip layout enables lower power consumption and more advanced performance tuning for a smoother, more realistic experience. The new P55 chipset has eliminated the Front Side Bus concept and now links its Direct Media Interface directly to the CPU. EVGA has brought incredible overclockability to this board using 100% Solid State capacitors in the CPU power section, allowing the use of DDR3 memory at speeds of 1600 MHz or faster. Six SATA and ports deliver greater flexibility. Build your system quickly with 90-degree rotated SATA ports and easy-to-locate, aligned front-panel headers at the edge of the board. The new EVGA E-LEET Tuning Utility software allows for adjusting overclocks directly in the O.S. without needing to enter the BIOS while an onboard CPU temperature monitor lets you keep an eye on your CPU to keep it from overheating. With incredible support for up to eight threads of raw processing power, dual-channel DDR3 memory, the EVGA P55 LE brings the best weapons to any application or game. Today’s extreme gaming, digital photography, and video editing demand breakthrough technology. The EVGA P55 LE supports the latest processors, and Intel’s cutting-edge technology delivers even greater performance and power efficiency.
