Hello everyone:
Im looking for a Asus motherboard for my i5 750 processor.
Im not planning to do any overclocking but I want to keep crossfire/SLI as an option.
Also can anyone suggest a g.skill ram module that will work well with this build. (I think 1333mhz will work well?)

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you,
JJ

Hello and welcome to the forums :) 
ASUS P7P55D-EVO or ASUS P7P55D-Deluxe are good options.

Hello Maziar,

Thanks for the reply. I think I'm going to go with ASUS P7P55D-EVO. Do you know what ram will work well with this combination (ASUS P7P55D EVO and i5 750)? I was thinking of the g.skill ones because they have the low voltages that will meet the requirements of the i5 750


Thank you,
JJ

What are the exact specs of the RAM ? can you post a link of it ?

I would highly recommend picking up these G.SKILL RAM.

Also, I would consider getting ASUS P7P55D-E Pro for your motherboard, as well.

Hello Tecmo,
Is there a specific reason for picking that motherboard? I originally had that motherboard on my mind too, but didn't know which one to choose from from all the ASUS.
I trust ASUS for motherboards and I actually want one that will make my setup easy because I'm not going to overclock this computer that I'm about to build, I want a motherboard compatible with the i5 750 and will not have a lot of settings to change in the bios. In other words, I can set up this computer rather easily, nothing complicated.

Thank you,
JJ

The reason I chose the P7P55D-E Pro is to me it is the best all around LGA 1156 motherboard... IMO. It offers the best features for the price, which provides a nice upgrade path (Crossfire x8,x8, USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0Gb/s).

but will the BIOS be hard to configure?
I read a lot of the forums on here and a lot of people say that there are lots of changes that need to be made in the BIOS before this computer can install the OS (Like, all the specs are funny fluently).
This is my first time building a computer so I don't want anything too complicated to handle with :p

It will be no different than any of the other ASUS motherboards. The only thing you'll need to configure is your RAM's voltage, speeds and timings, if don't default to specifications at startup. You aren't running a SSD, so you don't need to worry about switching to ACHI mode and your not overclocking, so that takes the other adjustments made in your BIOS away.

Sorry, but what is SSD? :p ....I'm kind of bad in short form stuff haha.
So the Ram's voltage, speeds and timings I have to adjust them to the ram's original specs right?

Thank You so much

SSD = Solid State Drive

You are correct on the RAM.

Tecmo,

For this combination of motherboard and cpu, are there any ways to find the appropriate settings for the bios? Because I've been seeing a lot of forum topics where this combination leads to slower cpu if you leave everything as it is when you build it.


Also, for the CPU Level Up function on this motherboard in the bios, does it help me overclock my computer (CPU)? In other words, does it help me change all the voltages and ratio/multipliers so that I can run it at the usual i5-750 mode (or maybe even better)?

I read on this other forum page that someone who built this combination (P7P55D-E Pro and i5-750) leads to his cpu having a speed of 1.33Ghz (from the specified 2.66 Ghz) and a multiplier of x9 (from the specified x20 multiplier that Intel supports)

I'm trying to learn a little more about overclocking so maybe I can test it out in the future when I build this computer. The CPU Level Up option will be really helpful for a beginner like me if it does what I think it does. :)

Here's the forum page with the person having problems with his multiplier for i5-750.
He fixed it by manually changing the core ratio in BIOS.

Can you find out if using the CPU Level Up option will change all these settings (including the multiplier)?

Thanks a lot,
JJ

I will have to do some research on my part as this is the first I've heard of these issues with the i5 750 not running at speeds.

Also, I'll check up on the CPU Level Up option...

Okay... the CPU Level Up is an automatic overclock funtion of the motherboard, so you make an adjustment and it makes all the required adjustments, which is a great feature for a first time overclocker.

You don't need nothing to do, just go in BIOS and go on LOAD DEFAULT SETTINGS, click on that choice save and exit. After that install new copy of win and enjoy...

Don't go in RAM setting, don't need it. Especially if you are begginer... :non: 

Have a good days with you'r new system :bounce:

since these specs for i5-750 are given from the Intel website, I'm going to expect those specs right?

Like the motherboard will not somehow adjusts my settings through their "Auto" and lower the performance of my CPU?

so if I just Load Default Settings, all the settings (which most of them will be normal) should be the default settings for my i5-750?

For example, if I install windows afterwards and run CPU-Z, I'll get the specs for my CPU as 2.66Ghz and x20 multiplier (and some of the other specs)?

Yes that's right and don't worry. For everything have first time :D 

On first boot, go in BIOS and choice "Load Default Settings" save and exit, after that install new copy of win and drivers... (recommend Win 7 x64, but this is on you)

Download some app... for testing and test all hardware.... CPU, GPU, HDD, DDR3, everything. Install 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark06 and PCMark Vantage and run.. First of all run RealTemp or CoreTemp and see how is temp on you CPU...

After all this, when you learn much more go in BIOS and change what you want... :kaola: 

I hope this will help you :)  :hello:  :hello:  :hello:

Take it easy men and don't worry.

Yes you'r spec about i5-750 will be how on intel site, just you go how i told you :) 

tecmo34 have a good step by step build pc, take a look:

Men, i don't read this...

Look, on every i5 750 speed in idle is 1.200Mhz and multiplier x9 (this is for power saving). When is need i5-750 automaticaly will increase clock speed and multiplier to 2.66 and x20. (If is Turbo mode enablet to 3.2Ghz x24)
Don't worry, this is normal...

JJ...

I'm with Misko195... Just load defaults and go from there. In reviewing the post that got you worried, I think the issue was more related to setting up RAM timings and things went downhill for the OP from there. I won't worry too much or dig into it too much. Just go with the motherboard you want and go from there with your build. With any build, you never know what you are going to get into or what will go right or wrong with any build.
