Having a hard time picking a P67 mobo... - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I've had a asus p67 pro and a gigabyte ud4. I really don't like EUFI for some reason. I've always had gigabyte, maybe can't use to it?

Also can't disable auto - lower clock if the computer doesn't need it. So I'd say get a gigabyte

Can't you just set all multi's the same on the ASUS? If you're running at 4.8, set all 4 turbo multis to 48x ?

4 is the absolute minimum. 2 of them would be driving 2 fans each with 4 headers.

So are the problems mostly present on the PRO line or have there not been much talk about problems on the EVO because not many people bought one?

I'm looking at the Newegg user reviews and I see a lot of people with the cold boot problem on the PRO, but not a single review up for the EVO.

I've used the Biostar TP67XE and the Gigabyte UD3P boards so far. One 2600k and one 2500k build. I really have been a longtime fan of Gigabyte. Never had one fail and always have been solid, stable, reliable boards. This is only my second Biostar but so far I've been satisfied with price/performance for both. The Gigabyte UD3P has 4 fan headers (including the cpu fan header). Biostar I'm not sure off the top of my head, but I think it only had 2.

I'd recommend either board heartily so far. The 2600k on the Biostar has hit 5.2ghz stable, but backed it down to 4.8ghz 24/7 for a more comfortable voltage range (1.38v). Cooled by stock H50 in push/pull (yate loon fans).

The 2500k I'm just finishing a regular stock burn in test with it now so I haven't really gotten around to pushing the o/c, but as with any sandy bridge I've seen so far over 4ghz on air was incredibly simple.

Actually 3 fan headers...I was going to recommend that mobo but he specifically needs a minimum of 4 fan headers.
