Asus Previews Latest P7P55D Evo Design

If you haven't yet seen our first-look preview at Asus' upcoming P55-based P7P55D Evo motherboard for Intel's Core i5, you can check it out right here.

In that preview, we mentioned that the board's design wasn't yet final, and that Asus would update us when the color/cooling was sorted out. That has happened, it seems, and we received a couple of shots of the new P55 heatsink and color scheme.

Of note is that these shots still show eight SATA ports, while we've heard from Asus that the Marvell controller's drivers are not ready and that Gigabyte is pulling the 6 Gb/s chips from its P55-based designs altogether.

    O.o What a southbridge heatsink.

    My only concern is that those VRAM sinks will get in the way of 3rd party HSF's but other then that it's shapeing up to be a nice board.

    looks nice. any word on SLI/CF support? The board layout suits it nicely. And not having a northbridge anymore gives so much more room around the board
