Asus P8P67 WS Revolution Review - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I love my WS board. Still running 1103 bios and my memory would work in either blue or black slots. Had one stick of RAM that was dead so I only used 2 sticks for 8gb instead of the 4 sticks for 16gb. RMA'd the ram already new stuff will be here Tuesday. Overclocking with this board is really easy. The UEFI took a little getting used to for me but now it is super easy to navigate.

Easy as could be. Set multi to 45, disable a number of items, change voltages (vcore, dram, PLL) and alter a few other settings and away it goes at 4.5 ghz.

I'll post a full list of settings shortly to attain 4.5ghz.

They stripped out a bunch of non essential items (JMicron controller, Bluetooth support) and provide a key feature by way of the NF200 chipset. The PCI-E layout is also pretty much optimal for any GPU config.

Is the bios chip Winbond or the same MX w/ the B2 & is it soldered or can be easily replaced?

That's weird. The 3 sets of RAM i put in the blue slots worked perfectly fine (Eco & Ripjaws X & some slow Kingston). I didn't even bother trying the black dimms.

Hmm... I'm looking at the pcie slot layout and comparing it to the M4E. This board beats the M4E with its pcie layout, handsdown.

Just set up my first I7 build and loving the P8P67 WS Revolution!

Anyway I am currently running 3 Sapphire 6950 Flex vid cards on a Asus P8P67 WS revolution board. Also this is my first time trying eyefinity w/ 3 identical monitors.

The issue I am having is that the Bios screen will not appear while booting if the monitors are plugged in on anything other than the 1st card top card, it will just be a black screen until it starts booting into windows. Is there a fix for this? Is there something that I am doing wrong or do I not have a choice on this matter?

I would really prefer to connect the monitors on the 3rd vid card because the board defaults this card at x16 and the other 2 at x8 and also the 3rd card runs the coolest as its not being blocked by anything.

That's the proper initialization order, top to bottom. If you want it different, you'll have to tell the bios too do it in a different order.
