People just want whats newer, whether it helps them or not.

Same non-sense with people griping about the RST not being updated.

Well, with regards to RST the newer versions usually provide better speeds on our SSDs/HDDs. What is "griping" on that? redface.gif

Im refering to the Bios portion of the RST, not the actual Drivers. The driver updates are actually helpful. Particualrily the AHCI drivers.

A lot of people over at hardocp (there are a couple Asus tech support reps floating around over there) were griping about not getting the bios updates...

According to Asus/Intel, All bios updates benefit ONLY the Z68 platform.

Absolutely no benefits for P67

I just wish I could change the "Warning: Spoiler!" message. With the new update, I'm not sure how. redface.gif

Hey guys just a couple of questions if you guys don't mind answering:

I'm thinking of rebuilding my PC and I was wondering is it wise to go for the new version of the Asus P8P67 PRO motherboard? or stick with the v1 motherboard? (as far as overclocking CPU goes of course)

The reason is I'm scared my SATA port will start degrading, also a question on memory, I have 8GB DDR3 1600MHZ as of now, is it safe to put another 8GB?

By safe, I mean will it limit my overclocking potential?


Side question: I have the Noctua NH-D14, is there anything else that cools better or just as good but takes less space? Like say the Antec KUHLER?

Thanks in advance guys, I appreciate it.

If you're worried about the ports degrading, get the REV3.0.
Nevermind. I didn't read your post properly. I'd just stick with your current one unless you have a lot of money to blow.

With the RAM, i don't know if it'll limit overclocking potential but 16GB isn't really necessary imo. Although it does depend on what you're doing.

For the cooler, I don't know how much smaller you want it but the Thermalright Silver Arrow is apparently just as good, and a bit smaller. I'm no pro on coolers though...
