Vista broke me of my early adopter habits. Nice board, but the 4 DIMM slots is odd. Still, a sign of good things to come.

Windows 7 Professional x64

My P55-UD4P was SUPPOSED to have SATA 6 but due to a list minute detail with the Marvell company (I think) it was not included. Some of the previews had the controller on it. Ah well. USB3 is going to be very cool!

Thanks bot

Why odd? Lynfield only has two memory channels, so 4 mem slots divides quite well.
