Asus P7H55-M LX compatibility review

The Asus P7H55-M LX uses the Intel LGA 1156/Socket H CPU socket. Any compatible Intel CPU will have the same socket entry. It uses the DDR3 memory type, with maximum speeds of up to 1333 MHz, and 2 DDR3 slots allowing for a maximum total of 8 GB RAM.

Released on 01 Jul 2010, the Asus P7H55-M LX is now over 9 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This motherboard will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little support from Asus.

Conforming to the ATX standard, the Asus P7H55-M LX should fit into the majority of cases. ATX is the most common form factor, and as such has a high degree of compatibility with other components while providing a decent number of slots to widen your expansion options.

The Asus P7H55-M LX has 6 SATA 2.0 hard drive slots. These allow for data speeds of up to 3GB/s. SATA 2.0 is a very common standard, and despite the emergence of SATA 3.0 - whose potential is difficult to reach currently - SATA 2.0 remains a viable option.

The Asus P7H55-M LX does not support onboard graphics. Any system build that uses this motherboard therefore requires a separate graphics card, or a processor that has a GPU on the same die, such as AMD APU processors. There are 1 PCIe x16 slots on this motherboard. This means it is perfectly capable of accommodating the latest graphics cards, although it is important to try and use a graphics card with the same graphics card interface of PCIe v2.x, as anything below will not reach the motherboard's potential, and anything above will have its performance slashed to the bandwidth maximum of the Asus P7H55-M LX's PCIe v2.x. The Asus P7H55-M LX does not support multiple graphics cards via Nvidia SLI or AMD Crossfire.

The Asus P7H55-M LX has 9 USB 2.0 slots but no USB 3.0 slots. While USB 3.0 slots are so far by no means necessary, and with a plethora of USB 2.0 peripherals to choose from, the USB functionality on this motherboard should be fine. If planning on building a new system, a motherboard with USB 3.0 is likely to have a longer life cycle, however.
