Asus P8P67 PRO Motherboard Review

P67 board is still a good option for those not wanted onboard video system.

The Board

The usual ASUS styled heatsinks around the socket.

The PCI-E slots,

2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8)
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, black) *1

I doubt anyone would be using the 3rd slot, I still dislike PCI-E x16 slots that are far at the bottom, any graphic card on that slot will hinder access to the buttons and connectors. In most cases, you can’t connect anything once there’s a huge heatsink blocking the path. CrossfireX + Physx card setup perhaps?

4 Dimm slots, the usual stuff.

Lovely 8 forward facing SATA ports. I’m always a fan of forward facing SATA ports on larger sized casing.

Just in case you wonder what’s the difference between the dark blue, light blue and grey ports,

2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), gray
4 x SATA 3Gb/s port(s), blue
2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), navy blue

*taken from the official product page.

Beats me why they had to color code it differently for the SATA 6gb/s ports.

And of course, the back-panel with a wealth of output.

ZOMG it still comes with 2x PS/2 port! I like it! (It also means it’s time for me to upgrade my KVM and keyboard).

Full details at the official product page.

Conclusion

This is on the more pricey side of the P67 boards available in the market. It’s feature rich and you don’t get them without paying more, the board retails at around RM 500.

  1. not deep enough to be considered a review,more like a preview to me.

    there’s not even a benchmark result.

    not like it’s your first time here. 🙂 a P67 board is a P67 board. it’s not like the procoessor will perform significantly different with others.

    not planning to do OC either – sorry, limited time. i’m not anandtech, tom’s, hexus, guru3d, others. 🙂 i like things simple and enjoy doing it this way.

  3. then its better to rename the article cos it might confused the 1st timer to the site no?

    just because you have an expectation, that doesn’t mean i have to rename my stuff. 🙂

    nothing to be confused. a review is a review. detailed or general, long or short. it is still a review.

  5. “Beats me why they had to color code it differently for the SATA 6gb/s ports. ”

    Actually quite simple (applies to P8Z68-V Pro that you reviewed too),

    White coloured SATA 6gb/s ports comes from Intel PCH .
    Dark blue coloured ports comes from Marvell Controller

    I own this board.
