How's the Asus Sabertooth P67 motherboard?

What do you guys think about it? I'm really liking the design of it, but I'm not sure about the reliability.

Of all ASUS boards that's the last one you should question for reliability. The Sabertooth series is built around durability. i.e. Military-rated electrical components.

Haven't heard any issues of people from x58 complaining.

I think a good half of it's features is marketing bunk tho, same with every other motherboard I think that's most of what you are paying for a premium for a nice color scheme.

Only time will tell on reliability. Asus doesn't use cheap components tho or a lot of people wouldn't buy and recommend them. I am more digging the gigabytes this time around.

I'm just mainly concerned because I've read some reviews of the boards being dead on arrival. And I remember back with one of Asus' high end boards having a problem with the northbridge heatsink being too low or something cause overheating problems.

Where? not many user reviews out to even get a gist of things.

Everything is going to have some DOA rate it's just a matter of percentage. Some of this is quality control some of it is damage during shipment or whatever else. Chances are if it's working when you get it it's going to last you a good few years then you have the manufacturers warranty to cover you asus is 3 years i think.

I personally have a haf x case, i could probably run without a north bridge heatsink and everything would be cool(kidding). They are passive so it's good to have airflow, I really don't know what most users do or there knowledge i assume a lot of people don't actually have a idea of what they are doing tho. So you see a lot of junky reviews which is why i hardly ever go by user reviews and stick to professional ones and that's assuming they know what they are talking about It's really hard to find quality but there are a few.

I wouldn't over think this man, pick the brand/features that fit you best that are at a price you like/afford. Even people with the cheap biostars seem to be doing o.k. i personally would want a little more phases for safety but that's just me I have seen boards pushed to there limits and last years.
