Thanks, will do that

Hi everyone, i'm new on this Forum.
This is my first post at this thread, and the first of many I expect hehe

I'm a future owner (probably proud) of P8P67 Motherboard Series.

My only doubt it's about buying the PRO or the EVO one.

Don't really need the 2nd ETH, and the Power/Reset/ClearCMOS switch buttons will be used 2 or 3 times at most, nothing that I cannot replace with a clip

Just one thing it's making me consider to buy the EVO, that its the extra heatsink below the socket (the one with the pipe).

Do you think this will make a difference in the later OCing process??

I was looking for a review where compare both -PRO vs EVO- but i didn't found it.

What do you suggest me guys?

The other components for the rig will be:
- SandyBridge i5-2500k (stock cooler, by the moment)
- G.Skill RipjawsX 1600 [F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM] (unless you suggest me a better)
- EVGA GTX260 216sp 55 nm SC (owned)
- LCPower LC8750 750W (owned)
- NZXT M59 (2xTacens Aura PRO 120mm @ TopUp) (owned)


Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english.

No, the Pro and EVO OC the same. If you want a better board than the Pro get the Deluxe. It has more power phases and a front USB connector box. These boxes sell for about $20 so it's worth it if you have an older case and want front USB 3.0 ports.

Its on the Deluxe as well. And it lights ups. lol

since the higher priced boards are targeted at extreme tweakers, the extra power phases can create extra thermal waste. its just added thermal control just in case.

Yeah, for sure it looks much more with the extra heatsink.

Anyway, you are talknig about the Deluxe, that have 16+2 phases, but PRO and EVO have 12+2 phases both of them right??

Whats the truly function of the extra sink?
Anyone know whats the function of the chipset that it cools?

Maybe someone with the PRO can tell me what it's that chipset under the socket.
