Asus' P55 Maximus III Formula crown jewel

We managed to score a few new pictures of Asus' top of the line P55 Maximus III Formula motherboard. This socket LGA1156 motherboard supports Intel's upcoming Core i5 processors and features Asus' recognizable black/red Republic of Gamers color scheme.

The rest of the features include four dual-channel DDR3 memory slots, three PCI-Express x16 slots, two plain PCI and two PCI-E x1 slots. The first PCI-E x1 slot will of course be used by the bundled Asus sound card.

Asus has made sure that all the heatsinks are quite low so there should not be any problem with clearance for both graphics cards and large CPU coolers. The single IDE and and six SATA slots are also angled and Asus apparently made sure that those little design details are perfect. In addition to six angled SATA connectors, Asus has supplied two more near the edge of the board.

The back panel includes eSATA, Firewire, Ethernet and a bunch of USB ports. The motherboard comes with several on board buttons, including Power, Reset and Clear CMOS, as well as a single button that Asus still has to explain once the motherboard is officially announced.

Without further delay, here are the promised pictures of Asus' P55 crown jewel.
