That also doesn't include the Sabertooth or the Gigabyte boards which I would like to see in an actual comparison to the ASUS boards instead of just against each other.

  • 16+2 phase (deluxe)
  • # SATA Ports
  • Intel GigE
  • MOBO power & reset buttons
  • QLED
  • LED diagnostic code
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • BT Turbo Remote OR Rog Connect mobile applications
  • Motherboard layout (Personal Preference)
  • Superior audio

A few off the top of my head I know the other boards have less SATA ports, we know some have less phases, some play tricks in SLi or crossfire, and some have inferior layouts or worse, PCI slots . The Sabertooth is marketing, if you plan to OC then it isn't for you.. Besides ASUS the other boards all seem the same from LAN chips to audio chips.

We've seen all boards are capable of a good OC.. The difference should come done to features, warranty, and support.

*Edit - here is a review that indirectly compares the ASUS Deluxe, Gigabyte UD4, and the MSI GD55.

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cpu...ore-i5-2500k/1

The reviewer indirectly compares the BIOS of each board and gives hints on how to OC SB. In short it seems the reviewer enjoyed the ASUS EFI over the MSI, and gave a quick shove to Gigabyte for lacking such support at launch.

Here is a great write-up that compares the ASUS, Gigabyte, Intel, and MSI boards. It definitely helped me to understand why the ASUS boards are by far the best option.

http://techreport.com/articles.x/20190/15

Now it comes down to what is the better buy between the Deluxe, EVO, PRO, and Sabertooth. The Comparison feature on ASUS' website isn't working for me for some reason. -_-

The thing is these MBs are to new to compare. Your going to have to be the guinea pig now.
I'd have to go with either the Pro or the Deluxe. They are almost identical except as you stated the 16+2 compared to the 12+2 power design. For OCing I'd go with the Deluxe (16+2) for the extra $30. I also see that on all these 1155 boards the PCIe 2 slots run at 8X each in Xfire/SLI, only 16X with 1 card. The Sabertooth and some of the Gigabytes only run at 8X and 4X. Also the Saber and some of the Gigas only have USB 2 and SATA 2.
So bottom line go for the Pro if your not going to OC or are on a big budget (only $30) or the Deluxe.
To bad the Sabertooth is so weak, it looks Soooo good.

No, the Sabertooth is actually x8/x8 as well. ^_^ They finally have the full specs for it listed on the ASUS site.

Sabertooth

It is, however, only 8+2 Phase.

I stand corrected. It's guess it's just some of the Gigabytes. But none of them run 16X +16X like the old MB/CPU.
Yes it's to bad the Sabertooth is so weak. I like it.

you cannot have more lanes unless you have some type of chip. unless you have a Nf200 or Lucid Hydra, you can only do 8x,8x. i woudl go Gigabyte, save yourself some headaches.

What are you referring to that would cause headaches? From the reviews I have read, ASUS is preferred for performance and ease of use when it comes to the P67 boards. Thanks!

Alright, I'm going to add a poll to this and hopefully that will help me decide. lol

These are the boards I am considering at the moment. If you have a suggestion of a better board in the price range that isn't listed, please feel free to vote so and explain why it is better.

EDIT: These boards are in the $180-$220 Price Range.

lol what? it's weak because it's 8+2? highly doubt you'd ever notice a difference vs 12+2
