Asus P7P55D-E Deluxe is enough for i7 @ 4Ghz?

Good evening gentlemen.

I'm building my new computer and it's almost ready i just have to choose the mobo and i would like to know your opinions about the Asus P7P55D-E Deluxe and if i will be able to hit 4Ghz without much trouble and make it stable for 24/7 with power saving options turned on like C1E to downclock when the computer is idle. What do you guys think? Is it possible with this mobo?

I choose this one over the Maximus III formula because i will need USB 3 and SATA 3 in the future and i'm not planning on upgrading my computer so soon.

Complete rig:

Core i7 875K 2.93Ghz (CoolerMaster V8 + Artic Silver 5)
P7P55D-E Deluxe (probably)
G.Skill DDR3 2200Mhz 4gb 2x2 w/ Fan (F3-17600CL7D-4GBPIS)
EVGA GTX 480 1536MB GDDR5
Gigabyte GT 240 512 GDDR5 (Just for PhysX)
1 SSD OCZ Vertex 2 120GB
4 HD's SATA (6TB)
Power Supply XFX 650 XXX Modular
Gabinete CM HAF 932

The processor is unlocked and i will try to reach 4Ghz with the memory G.Skill @ 2000Mhz CL 6-9-6-24 but as i said before i really would like to keep the power saving options turned on because the machine will stay up for 24/7 and stable of course.

My Best Regards,
Queiroz

  1. Hi Queiroz,

    In this review, they were able to get a stable overclock at 4.2 GHz but no mention of the power save functions enabled or not. It looks like a good board and you should have no issues with it.

  2. It's a good board just make sure you get a newer release with a bios that will support the 875K out of the box.
    Bios Version 0806.
  3. About the board i cant help you, i posted a similar question myself just now... but seeing your rig i notice you have two graphic cards, one "Gigabyte GT 240 512 GDDR5 (Just for PhysX)", i dont see why, since the GTX 480 suports PhysX itself.

    Best regards
  4. Sure i will update the bios before i start overcloking it but i have to be sure about the power saving options first because with my E8400 was a pain in the ass and in the end i had to turn off every power saving option to get it stable but thanks for the review link i will read after work

    Best Regards,
    Queiroz
