ASUS P6T Deluxe OC Palm Edition is probably one of the most fully loaded socket LGA1366 motherboards to arrive on the market for the Core i7 processors, based on Intel X58 chipset with ICH10R south bridge chip. Features not found on most competing motherboards include a small 2.5” LCD display for overclocking options, three x16 PCI Express slots, support for SLI (finally), support for SAS hard disk drives, an impressive 16-phase voltage regulator circuit and several other features common to high-end boards from ASUS, like Express Gate (which allows you to immediately load an internet browser and Skype even without a hard disk drive installed), passive heatsinks with heat-pipes for the chipset and voltage regulator circuit and solid aluminum Japanese capacitors. Let’s take a look at this motherboard and what you should expect from it.

We have published a detailed article about Intel’s high-end motherboard for the Core i7 based on X58 chipset, DX58SO “Smackover”, so a comparison between the two is inevitable.

The “OC Palm” on the model name refers to the 2.5” LCD display where you can adjust overclocking options, like voltages. While you are not overclocking your system you can use this screen to monitor you system (temperature and fan speeds, for example) or to open a Yahoo! Widget, such as weather forecast.

This display is connected to the motherboard through any available USB port and in fact it is the same display that was included in some previous ASUS motherboards, such as P5B Premium Vista Edition.
