post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Biostar TP67XE at microcenter for $141+tax shipped, pretty good deal imo considering this board supports sli/xfire and windwithme on this forum was able to hit 5ghz w/ his 2600k.

How does this compare to the AUS Pro P8P67 Board?

The Pro is a bit better as it has another PCIe x16 slot (x4 electrically), Intel Gigabit LAN, Bluetooth, onboard USB 3.0 header, digital PWM, and greater BIOS support.

: / I am still trying to figure out which board to go with. The Biostar one looks good for the money, but if there is one thing I have learned is this : NEVER go cheap on PSU or motherboards. I guess my main concern with the Biostar is warranty support and BIOS support.

The question is the PRO worth $50 - $60 more?

I would stick with the Biostar board. It's by no slouch either, windwithme did a quick review here.

Look over the layout and extra features on either board. I noticed that the Biostar has onboard power/reset if that appeals to you. It also has dual 8-pin EPS12V connections for higher overclocking.

Between this Biostar, this MSI http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130552, this GIGABYTE http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128463 and the Asus board AtomicFrost mentioned, which one is the best in terms of build quality, support, RMA and quality of the UEFI BIOS (except the GIGABYTE as the UEFI BIOS is not coming until later)?

MSI GD65 is suppose to compete with that Gigabyte board and the Asus Pro. In terms of quality, I would choose the Asus over the rest due to layout and component quality. However, it lacks in support. Gigabyte easily has the best driver and BIOS support to date. Before their boards were even released, they had 8 or so BIOSes, fixing various things. And like you said, the only thing they don't have yet is UEFI but thankfully it will be implemented sometime soon.
