Intel DP55KG

The Intel DP55KG ‘Kingsberg’ motherboard marks the latest step in a long, slow journey as Intel attempts to convince the buying public that it can build interesting motherboards. Provided that you expect an Intel motherboard will offer stability and precious little else then the DP55KG manages to offer a certain amount of wow factor.

There are two graphics slots with CrossFireX and SLI support; a decent array of PCI and PCI Express expansion slots; eight laid-down Sata connectors; eight USB 2.0 ports; one Firewire port; and digital connections for the integrated audio.

You don’t get a legacy ATA-133 connector as Intel has deemed that the world has moved to Sata, and you can forget about a PS/2 connector for your mouse. But these are small crosses to bear.

Intel has cleared the headers and connectors away from the usual location in the bottom corner of the motherboard. The On/Off micro button is located at the top of the board next to the main power connector, and the front-panel headers and the connectors for case-mounted USB and Firewire ports live outboard of the four DDR 3 memory slots.
