Asus P8P67 Pro vs. ASRock P67 extreme4

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Will be using 2500k and 8GB 1600 ram. Possibly SLI/crossfire in the future.

So, between the Asus P8P67 and ASRock P67 Extreme4 GEN3, which one is better? I can't make up my mind but the ASRock gets a plus for all-black cool factor so far.

Not wanting to spend more than $150ish on it so those two seem like solid choices. Any other suggestions are welcome too.

Which one is better? ASRock obviously.

If you were comparing the P8P67 Pro to the Extreme4, it would be a closer match.

Okay, if that was the case, which one is better?

I'm debating these same boards, and also the Z68 Extreme4. I'm not sure if going with the p67 extreme 4 just because it looks cooler is a good reason to buy a motherboard, but that's the one I'm leaning toward. I also like the idea of the virtu feature, and wouldn't mind trying out ssd caching, but I'm not sure if the extra $ justify it.

I would go for Asus.

P8P67 Pro vs Extreme4
Asus

Pros:
  • 12+2 phase.
  • Intel Gigabit LAN.
  • Onboard bluetooth.
  • Better UEFI.
  • NEC USB 3.0 controller (if you get Rev 3.0).
  • 3 year warranty.

Cons:
  • Odd color combination.
  • Slow boot.


ASRock

Pros:
  • Black PCB and slots.
  • Molex peripheral (additional power for PCIe slots).
  • Onboard power and reset buttons.
  • Rear clear CMOS button.
  • Onboard debug LED.
  • PCI Express 3.0 compliant.
  • PLX chip.

Cons:
  • 8+2 phase.
  • Etron USB 3.0 controller
  • Realtek Gigabit LAN.
  • UEFI is a bit lacking, not as unified as Asus.
  • 1 year warranty

My P67 extreme4 is rock solid great.
Got to 5.1GHz at 1.44V on WC, but as temps were too high for me I have now 4.8GHz at 1.34V. And Corsair 1600MHz cl8 is even good at 1866MHz cl10 on 1.5V.

Its even simple to change BIOS 1.9, just extract to root of USB drive.

And here some driver updates for Win7 64bit

Sound card updates here.
