Asrock p67 extreme4 vs. Asus P8P67 models

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
I felt i was pretty set on getting the p8p67 deluxe when it comes back out on newegg, but have been reading some new things about the Asrock p67 extreme4 .

For the money which is the best choice on a p67 board?

Could also include any other noteable models. I just dont want to make a mistake on the motherboard i'm buying.

Thank you!

ASUS is long and proven brand at this point, but ASROCK have been getting better and better lately. I know a lot of people on here that really like their ASROCK boards.

i've read tons of threads about asus p67 problems/issues, but havent seen any complaints about asrock p67 yet, if you dont need the extras like more sata ports or whatnot, save your money and get the asrock

alright i think i might do that. Just like this thread it's tough becuse everything i'm reading seems to be conflicting with one another.

As far as extras go i would like a board that will work well with ivybridge as well and has upgrade capabilities if i decide to go further than with everything posted on my build below.

Thanks for the help guys.

I'm trying to decide between the P8P67-Pro and the ASRock Extreme4. I'm still pretty positive I'm going with the Extreme4. As people have mentioned, there are a lot of issues with the P8P67-Pro but most seemed to have been fixed with the latest UEFI. There are a couple of much more minor issues mentioned in the Extreme4 thread. Biggest one I can remember if the mouse lag issue in UEFI with the Extreme4, which has been fixed.

**edit** Now the issues with the P8P67-Pro are much more worrisome. Voltage issues, overclocks not sticking, problems booting, and driver issues.

**edit** Also these boards according to the post at the top of these forums P67 Mobo Comparisons are identical feature wise but the ASRock is $40 less. Take that extra $40 and put it into a good HSF or better RAM.

I keep seeing people say ASRock standard warranty is only 1 year but that is not what the extended warranty page indicates.

Quote:
The extended warranties will vary from purchase locations. For instance, if you purchased ASRock P67/H67 B3 stepping chipset motherboard in a 2-year-warranty territory, your service guarantee is automatically 3 years in total. If you purchased in 3-year-warranty territory, then the service guarantee is automatically 4 in total.

Am I reading this wrong?
