You can catch a review of two P55 based motherboards, the $150 Asus P7P55D and the $170 Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4P over at The Tech Report.  The capabilities and compatibilities of the two boards are very similar, with the Gigabyte having a bit of an advantage in its onboard audio, the real difference shines out in the overclocking options.  The auto overclocking ability in both boards is strong, with the Gigabyte board again in the lead.  Once the overclocking software finds a stable frequency you can either stop there, or do what comes naturally to most enthusiasts and use it as a starting point for fine tuning.  Take a look at the two boards in action here.

“Ultra-high-end motherboards for Core i5 and i7-800 processors make little sense, but there are plenty of excellent mid-range models to choose from, including Asus’ P7P55D and Gigabyte’s GA-P55-UD4P. We’ve taken a close look at how those two boards match up against the P55 competition.”
