What should I do - Asus P7P55D

Hello all,

I have ordered just last weak a new Intel i5 and Asus P7P55D. And then I read article about burned processors and motherboards on 1156 Foxconn chipsets.

What should I do? I don't have in plan to overclock processor but still as people say it can happen once. And no warranty will be there.

Do you think it will work since I won't overclock a processor?

Which motherboard do you recommend if I choose Core 2 Duo LGA 775 processor?

Thank you.

    It's not Foxconn chipset, it's Foxconn socket. And unless you plan on doing something extreme, you're probably fine. You can test-install the CPU to see if the socket leaves marks on the bottom like it's supposed to, but most people will be fine even if it doesn't.
  2. I would install the cpu once and leave it alone. Don't remove it if the voltages are stable. It either works or doesn't.
  3. Thanks to all of you.

    Chipset / Socket - sorry it was late.

    May I ask how much is a warranty in Europe for Asus board and what would happen IF processor would be burned because of socket.
  4. I just contacted a distributor in my country and he said IF processor would be burned because of socket-board, ASUS would NOT cover the new processor, unless they decide differently (if they admit the whole series had a problem).
  5. Hello everyone,

    I just got my new Asus P7P55D and i5 so please tell me what do you think:



    The red area does not have a contact in my opinion.
  6. Stupidly or not, my i5 750/Socket has the same issue in the same core/Place..

    =(:S

    Amazingly or not i OC it to 3,5ghz/1,22v Core and Prime95/Intel Burn Test it passes no errors...


    Confusing? How it´s that Core "OK" or Fully Working if Contacts are all messed Up, i can´t RMA it, Asus says it´s was fault ...Hahaha
