P8P67 RMA'd - What to replace it with?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hey,

So I just RMA'd my P8P67, all the problems it's given me lately has just annoyed me and the final straw was a BIOS update not giving me any video output.

So what would people recommend? I was thinking the GigaByte P67A-UD4 but I'd like to know other people's opinions, ideally the max I'd like to spend is £150.

Also should I wait for the new updates boards to come out or should I pull the trigger and just swap them now? DECISIONS.

Thanks

Wait a month for the new sandy bridges to come out. They were recalled by Intel due to a Sata-II misconfiguration. Estimated arrival to manufacturers: Late February.

Heck.. It's only SATAII... Why wait.. I would get a new board and switch it out...just use SATA III slots.. you have plenty to use 4 of them in fact.. on a Asus Pro board.

kinda tough to find a retailer who will see you a P67 board at this point... I'd say buy anything you can find.

Mine just bit the dust. ASUS P8P67 Pro. Started with a sensor issue this morning showing the mobo temp going from 28C to 123C instantly, to next reboot failing to reach BIOS and going through a repeated restart cycle. Memcheck passed and got me to BIOS, but wouldn't post on restart. Thankfully I have 5 computers for my 3ds max render farm, so I'm not without.

Apparently this is happening to a ton of ASUS 1155 boards. I cannot believe they let their QC get so poor on these.

It's like Sandy Bridge is rigged to explode or something.

I blame AMD

You won't be able to buy Sandy Bridge motherboards until about April. It is going to take awhile before the likes of Asus and Gigabyte have the fixed motherboards for retail.

Thanks for that thoughtful and insightful post.

OT:

If you're fine with another ASUS board (almost identical) the PRO is a solid choice, I've had no issues and I don't see why you would either. The UD4 is a great board, I didn't like the look of the coolers and saw the ASUS to be a better bargain personally. It comes down to features/price, they're all about the same.
