We've got three high end LGA775 boards on test today.

Quote: What makes a good i955X motherboard? From what we've seen in this review, it's a combination adding a number of useful discrete features to boost a i955X-equipped motherboard to deluxe standard. All three motherboards here carry additional SATA support from Silicon Image, FireWire800 connectivity, and in the case of the ABIT AW8-MAX and Gigabyte Royal boards, dual PCIe Gigabit LAN ASICs from Broadcom. Both also add in enthusiast-specific features, with ABIT opting for heatpipe northbridge cooling and Gigabyte running with a potential 8-phase power supply.
