titleIn all of our LGA 1155 testing one of best experiences we had was with our Asus P8P67 EVO. Not only was the board of the best quality and feature packed, but for once we were very happy with the included software. Because of that we were very excited to see what Asus would have to offer with the launch of X79. Today we will be taking a look at their P9X79 PRO. With a full feature set I am expecting this to be a killer board, but there is only one way to find out for sure! Let’s take a look.

Before everyone goes out and spends a lot of money tomorrow, this board is something to consider. You could be upgrading your PC to the P9X79 Pro and Intel's newest and fastest CPU's!
