Asus P67 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 269

post #2681 of 3000
I posted it in the other board but ill put it here too since it's relevant.

I just wanted to come here to tell you all to stay the hell away from the p8p67 series. I've never owned a more horrible and troublesome motherboard.

Backtrack to january 9th~ when the Sandy Bridges first come out. I order a p8p67 deluxe: everything works fine! Until it dies two weeks later. No problem, I thought. This happens. RMA'd it.

The one I got back was dead on arrival. Rma'd Again.

Third board had a defective top GPU slot, 2 ram slots didn't work but I figured...who cares? It's been over a month and a half that I cant use my CPU, I'll deal with it.

Fast forward a year and the second gpu slot dies aswell. I'm forced to run my PC OUTSIDE MY CASE because I cant fit my gpu into the third slot. Rma... AGAIN...

Get my FOURTH ... supposedly 'tested' board:

TOP gpu slot still doesnt work, but at least the second one does!
two ram slots STILL dont work.
Heck, I don't even know if it boots into windows yet because I didn't have time to mess around with the sata wires trying to get it to see my HDDs.

Worst. Board. Ever. Holy ****. I can't believe ASUS is associated with this product

I ordered the following last night:

ASUS P8P67 Deluxe (Rev 3.0)
I5 2500K
PowerColor HD7950

these components are added to the stuff I've already purchased and was waiting on the above to finish this build...

120GB Intel 320 SSD
1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3
GSkill Ripjaws X2x4GB DDR3 1600 (2 sets of these)
Corsair HX750 Power Supply (Modular)
Corsair Obsidian 650D case
etc
etc
etc


So I never really install the junk that comes off the CD from mobo's, is there anything I need with this one?

Also this is my 1st try at running an SSD as my OS drive (Windows7), I'vee read that I just refrain from installing my hard drive till afterward. Any other tips or BIOS settings i need to be checking for the SSD, or really anything you think of?

Much appreciated. I'm excited for this upgrade over my sig rig.

As far as SSDs and installing the OS, all the information can be found here in Sean's thread. helpinghand.gif

I tossed my supposedly spare Asus p8p67 LE to retailer and switched it with a Gigabyte Z68AP-D3. Very old-school looking board, no leds(LPT1, COM and HDMI ports look odd at the back biggrin.gif) but it gets the job done. I dunno why my main P8P67 EVO gave up or P8P67 LE didn't even run. EVO is on RMA, probably gonna use it when the new one comes back. I never had cold boot problems, I did have RAM problems thou. 1 boot it was stable, another wasn't.

I think all mobo manufacturers should slow down on making zillions of versions of boards. Just test them with all kinds of rams, gfx cards then switch to mass production. Mobo is the backbone of a system, it can not fail, for every mobo going bad in the warranty period, they must send gifts and a card saying "we are sorry" biggrin.gif
