Asus P7P55 LX
Released September, 2009
The Pros:MemOK feature allows for system to boot with mixed memory modules. Relatively low cost considering the LGA1156 CPU socket type and ATX form-factor. Well documented - easy to understand manual.
The Cons:Slow boot up - can take 20-30 seconds to finish POST. SATA port and PCI-E slot connections can be intermittent. Poor build quality - board feels cheap and flimsy.
