Best P67 board - Page 2

post #11 of 37
Thread Starter 
Have they fixed the cold boot issues with the Asus Pro's? I remember when I first bought my 1155 I chose the MSI because of those issues.

So whats the best P67 board that has simular features to my GD65?

No they haven't. Well they might have, they have a new beta bios out but I'm waiting for it to be reg release. Honestly if you cold boot a lot the only thing it does is add a few seconds more to boot time.

Whats Asrock like?

ASUS Maximus IV is most likely the "best" 1155 board

Definitely watching this thread, I hate this GD65, terrible voltage control. I actually had a UD4 for a while, but sold it so I could buy a second 6950. I would suggest that UD4 though, or maybe the P8P67 Pro. I don't have experience with that though.

For you i would suggest a board from ASRock, they offer so many nice feutures to such a minor price, also the build quality is just fine. For a ASUS or Gigabyte board in that range, i don't think that you would be very happy about as it doesn't support very much else than your current GD65 Board from MSI.

Go for the ASRock Extreme4 or Extreme6, those will benefit you in any way, it also includes the UEFI bios so many are talking about.

Here is the Extreme6:
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/261252
Price ~ 158£

Here is the Extreme4:
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/261255
Price ~ 132£

Those i would recommend

Sabertooth is approximately 154£, now your question probably comes to why i would pick any of the two boards over the ASUS ?

Heres why:

- When it comes to overclocking, the ASRock Extreme6 would perform way better because of its Phase Power Design. The ASUS Sabertooth delivers 8+2(The 2 phases goes for the QPI) tho the ASRock Extreme6 delivers 16+2 Phases, this sure will make the Sabertooth overclock the less. As the Phases defines how smooth the voltages is delivered, which will then stabilize the CPU in any way, wether you overclock or not.

- ASRock Extreme6 is also much more feuture rich than the sabertooth or any ASUS motherboard in that price range. You get a better audio, 3x x16 PCIe busses(Sabertooth is 2x x16), and so much more.

For the sabertooth, to anyone who doesn't know it, the "THERMAL ARMOR" is just a gimmick and is pretty much useless, but might be attractive to some.

When we talk about the Extreme4, you get nearly the same feutures but for around 20£ off the price, now the question is, what is the better pick ?

I think i described it pretty well to you, if you have any questions feel free to ask them

Regards,
James

I must say, that was a very informative post. Now, with the Asrock, whats the mean difference between the Extreme6 and Extreme4?
