Which P67 Motherboards ~$180??

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Im building a new computer with a i5 2500k but dont know which mobo i should buy. I want to overclock, and im gaming most off the time.
Srry for my crap english


Im realy interested in the msi-p67a-gd65, top quality, great overclocking, great performance.

Then i saw the Asrock Extreme4 and 6, well i have bad experience with the budget asrock mobos, they have poor quality parts and poor performance, but i hear great things about the extreme versions. But still prefer MSI or Asus.

Also there is the Sabretooth P67, well only extra is the cooling pad on it, and i dont think its realy worth the + $30.

And finaly the Asus P8P67 PRO, i dont know much about this mobo.

Does anyone know which mobo will be the best for ~$180?

P8P67 Pro worked wonders to me!

After updating bios and clearing CMOS it has worked wonders!

I'm running a P8P67-M Pro and overclock to 4.6GHZ just using the slider in AI Suite. This board hasn't had a BIOS update yet, and I believe runs with a simpler VRM setup than the full size boards (and no mid-board USB3.0 ports.) only issue I have had is that the pc restarts itself two to three times when new hardware is added. Figure this will be addressed with a BIOS update.

Cost was $160 shipped

UD4 is comparable to Asus P8P67 Pro or MSI P67A-GD65.

Except that their older BIOS format is still working great. UEFI is being tweaked and tested as it is still in early stages. If you're going to overclock, I wouldn't even put UEFI/BIOS as a high priority.

i wouldn't recommend the P8P67 Pro just yet. Asus is still working out bugs with the bios and i've already wasted a good chunk of time getting it working right.

The bios quirks, IMO, do not detract from the fact that hardware speaking the P67 Pro is a great board. I have it for what will be my new sig rig (still have parts in transit)

Most problems with the board, and I would surmise most of the P67 boards at this time are from overclocking (yeah I know, what are we here for if not to OC) and the UEFI. SB does not give us a lot of wiggle room with regards to BCLK since it now ties directly to the PCI-E lanes. So any changes to it directly affect just about every other system in your rig. The platform, being new, is still something we are learning about and getting better with. So in short, can the P67 Pro OC? Absolutely. How far you will get on it, how stable it will be, and what side issues you will have, really depends on how much time you put into it to get stable, the specific hardware you are using and at this time a touch of luck in getting yourself a good CPU.

The gigabyte boards have the hardware for UEFI as in they have the same BIOS chips as ASUS, they have a UEFI bootloader to allow you to use 3TB+ hdds already, and UEFi will come down the road.
