    Um, why do you say at the beginning of the article to go for P55 with i5-750, and H55 with i3-530, but then proceed to do the exact opposite in the tests?
    I'd like to see a fairer comparison (ie i3-530 OCed on this board). I think this is quite relevant with 4GHz overclocks being reported on i3-530s
    Or am I missing something?

    It's a fair question. The P55-H55 OC testing was discovered more recently after many tests on many boards, but our decision to formalise the hardware for all our testing was made at an earlier date so we can provide plenty of comparative data. Plus, P55 and H55 board prices are very similar and we prefer to recommend the i5-750 where possible.

    But Bindibadgi, you have to remember though, the H55 boards are built with media PC or family PC/homework in mind, slapping in an I5-750 is overkill, not to mention the graphics are overkill to (as a comparison)... H55 and similar boards that use the display ports should be tested with I3-530's. I know your recommending the I5-750 where possible, but are their heat implications and a bigger power supply needed to run bigger hardware? And media PC's to be fair dont need that much grunt do they...?! and the cost increases by £50 or more just by upgrading the CPU, to what would make little difference in the real world to those groups i mentioned in mind.
