Let's start off by taking a quick look around the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard.

Expansion includes three PCI Express x1 slots, two PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots (x16 mode and x8 mode for the second), and a pair PCI slots. Along the bottom edge of the motherboard are COM, floppy, printer, USB, Firewire and IDE headers.

In SLI/Crossfire the videocards operate in x8/x8 mode. There is plenty of space for dual-slot wide videocards to be installed on the GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard.

In this corner of the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P we find the Intel P55 Express chipset under a small passive heatsink, the IDE and front panel connectors, two USB headers and tucked in between the PCI slots the Firewire header. The six blue SATA II ports are flanked by two 6Gb/s SATAIII jacks.

Gigabyte's GA-P55-UD4P motherboard supports up to 16GB of DDR3-800/1066/1333/2200 memory in four DIMMs. Along the bottom edge of the board is the ATX 24-pin power connector.

The GA-P55A-UD4P supports socket 1156 processors, like the Intel Core i5 700-series and the Core i7 800-series.

The passive heatsinks on the GA-P55-UD4P motherboard are compact, dissipating heat through use of low profile fins.
