    Default ASRock P55 Deluxe

    Sean C,

    I am considering the purchase of an ASRock P55 Deluxe motherboard but I have the following questions concerning the board.

    1. The latest official bios is 2.00 12/28/2009. Does this indicate that bios support has ended for this board?

    2. I do not see support for the new i7-875k cpu. Will this cpu be officially supported? Can the board be booted as shipped using a i7-875k cpu and then flashed to the latest bios?

    3. I noticed that you posted an L2.09 4/8/2010 beta bios. I downloaded the .zip file but there is no ReadMe file. Can you add a ReadMe documentation file to the download so users will know what changes were made?

    4. I was looking for a P55 motherboard that does not disable i7 cpu Tubo Boost or low power C states during overclocking. Does the ASRock P55 Deluxe bios allow you to overclock while still suporting Tubo Boost and low power C states on multiple cores?

    5. I would eventually like to use the system in a DAW (digital audio workstation) capacity. For this to succeed the motherboard must pass latency tests using Windows 7 x64. The Thesycon DPC Latency Checker tool can be used to test the latency of a particular motherboard bios combination. The free tool can be downloaded here:

    DPC Latency Checker

    Would you be willing to run this test for me and report the results?

    6. Can you plug a PCIe I/O (non-graphic) card into the 2nd PCIe 2.0 x8 slot?

    7. Can you plug a graphic PCIe card into the 2nd PCIe 2.0 x8 slot and leave the first PCIe 2.0 slot empty?

    7. Can you plug a graphic PCIe card into the 2nd PCIe 2.0 x8 slot and plug a PCIe I/O card into the first PCIe slot?


    thanks,
    Ron

    Q1 = No

    Q2 = Yes it will be supported as long as testing is done to make sure its compatible.

    Q3 = Cant give an answer for that

    Q4 = Yes, turbo still works despite being overclocked.

    Q5 = should be fine since its got both optical and coxial connections, if you really want to run a DAW, i suggest getting an external addon pci/pci-e sound card with more features than the onboard sound.

    Q6 = Yes, but first graphics card slot will be reduced to x8 lanes.

    Q7 = Yes, but why would u do it? :S

    Q7/8 = Yes.
