P67 MIVE vs UD7

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi there, the time has come for me to let go of my good old Q6600. I'm going to upgrade to a Sandy Bridge 2500k, Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz 2x4gb and either the Gigabyte P67 UD7 or the Asus MIVE P67. I'm not quite sure on which one to get...
The UD7 would be a perfect board in my case since I have a black/white theme. But which one of the 2 boards is "best" performance/overclock wise? I run on air (D14)and at the moment i got a Gigabyte GTX 460 1gb, and I plan on getting one more.

PS. I don't care about the UEFI.

Thanks!

Alot of people went with asus with the 1st P67 boards bc gigabyte didnt have new bios. Now the Z67 boards do. I really like the UD7 board. But dont buy a board because of its color. id go GB ud7

Their both Great motherboards. Can't go wrong with either one. Maximus IV Extreme might be more pricy so if you are on a budget you could consider the UD7.Z68 however is a Newer chipset and you could consider a Maximus IV Extreme-Z or UD-7-Z68.

They are both going to be pretty even as far as this goes. Doing a quick look at the specs will confirm. Only real difference is ud-7 has the nf200 chip, and the ASUS has an intel and bluetooth lan.

With these SB chips its not really the mobo that's holding back your clocks these days its the chips themselves. If you get a chip that is stuck at a 55x multi then that's what you get. Not much of a difference a mobo can make this time around.

You probably won't notice much difference in either performance wise. From my understanding, overclocking capabilities come mainly from the CPU rather than the motherboard, so getting a CPU that can overclock well is purely luck.

Personally, I love my UD7. I can hit 4.4 Ghz at about 1.27 or 1275v. If I want stupid easy overclocking, I just let the board do the work and click x45 multi on the turbo and it'll automatically go to 4.5 stable at about 1.32v. Either way, the board itself has been incredibly enjoyable to work with.

If you decide to get it, it'll take some time to figure out the features if you aren't adjusted to Gigabyte boards.

Edit: If you aren't planning to use the integrated GPU (I wouldn't unless I was trying to troubleshoot a graphics card--in which case I carry old crap GPUs) or SSD caching, I would go with the P67 over Z68. You'll save a bit of money that way. I think the P67a-UD7 on Newegg is going for like 280 or 275 and the Z68 is still fully priced at like 340 or 350.

I believe that the maximus also has the NF200 chip.

Maximus has the NF200 as well. I went with the Maximus because i've had a crosshair IV as well as a Maximus III. Boards are top notch and overclock like mad.

Kyro.com has the Maximus for 326.65

haha I wont say it again but yea the M4E has the NF200.

I have a question are you just using dual GPU? Then its the UD5 or the M4E, as you want to run 2 WAy SLI at 8x/8x, and the UD5 is like UD7's cousin, same beefy VRM, just no NF200, so its cheaper.

Running your cards on SB at 8x/8x is going to be better in your case, the UD7 cannot do this, youll have the added latency of the NF200. If you have 3 PCi-E devices, then yea consider the UD7.

Anyways they are pretty equal, and GB doesn't have the GUI BIOS, they have TouchBIOS which is software, and their UEFI has no GUI in the BIOS, its old fashioned as well as allows new computer ppl to tune the BIOS through windows.

Honestly I like the UD7 more, but its your choice. You can get the P67A-UD7 for like $280 after rebate from $300 i am pretty sure.
