why did most people get an ASUS P67? - Page 10

post #91 of 130
btw Sin, Gigabyte also uses some Foxconn parts (Sockets mainly).

And yeah the Microcenter i5 2500k Bundle prices are a main reason why people get asus boards im thinking.

2500k and P8P67 Pro is $340.00 + Tax
2500k and P8P67 is $300.00 + Tax.

Spec sheet wont tell you anything on the PWM. find the digital PWM and read the number off of it type it into google and if they have released the spec sheet then it will come up, intesill also has not released to the public. I can show you an example tho, as i will just to make you feed better.

here is an older version of both, first if a analogue pwm, second is a digital pwm.

listen man i don't just talk out of my ass, i can show you the article on the volterra vs interstil it think it has chil in there as well.

you honestly do not know what you are talking about and its ok, your not an EE i don't expect you to understand what is below, but you can see the different styles of how the signals are passed. The current Intersil and Chil pwms are under their own internal NDA, idk why but they are.

i just want to say tho, that is really doesn't matter and i hope asus got the certification, but earlier they did not. The PWM means very title to overall board or even VRm performance as long as the company didn't cheap out on it, which asus and gigabyte do not. All in all the powerhouse of the VRm are the MOSFETs which change 12v to 1-2v for the CPU and they are the ones that define the power of the board. When they say 16 phases they are talking about 16 MOSFETs, not a PWM with 16 phases are they don't make those, they make 4 -12 phase pwms and then piggyback MOSFETs and it works.

The ones pictured below are for the R3E and for the UD9/UD7/UD5/UD3
Now if I think the issue with ASUS's VRD12 crap was that Chil didn't redesign the whole PWM simply added a secondary DAC and ADC for SVID and then updated the firmware b/c that is the beauty of digital pwms, you can update the firmware, and thus change the operating parameters.

Thanks Sin. I thought you need like special access to be able to obtain these spec sheet, like intel's vrd12.

Yes i know they do, and i am the one going around and telling people they do when they ask lol. everyone things because legit reviews said it was lotes that its lottes, if you look in the threads i am the one saying its foxconn on the UD5 and UD7, because it was said those boards have lottes.

Well VRD12 isn't released yet, but it will be release just like VRD11.1 and previous VRD versions.

Chil's policy is that you can see th product brief but you have to request in depth charts.

Volterra is nothing but request(they are aholes)

Intersil is public about everything.

Renessas is public as well.

lol the q/connect is useful i must say, but not necessary, my Lian-Li case comes with a version of this that is universal.

or do people buy based on name alone?
I just switched from asus to biostar for the sandy bridge. I got the tp67xe and I'm very impressed with everything about the board. I just got tired of Asus un-reliability and non-working features. I used asus for 5 years, and I was never able to get RAID, or eSata to work in any version of any board. Also, about half the time, I always had trouble getting my virgin boot with Asus boards, and have had several DOA's during the time I used them as my main brand. Glad I've made the switch.

How is it universal? o_O

The pin layout varies from mobo to mobo.

I chose the Gigabyte UD4 over the Biostar because I was not hearing as much about the Biostar. I did see it overclocked to over 5Ghz, but there was not much else. This is my first build so I figured going for a larger brand would help with layout and support if needed. Since I plan on keeping my system for 2-3 years the difference in price was not that big. Once I am more comfortable building and knowing exactly what I want I will consider other brands.

well they are all the same size, so you figure out where they go , and then plug it in, that is why the q-plug or whatever its called is useful, because you don't have to try and plug them in one by one.
