Now that P67 Mobos are back...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've been waiting very patiently for a long time. Within the next 2 weeks or so I'll be piecing parts together for my 2600K rig. The only thing I'm questioning now is which Mobo to get. I was originally looking at the ASRock Extreme4, but now I don't seem to see it anywhere. Maybe it'll still be a little bit before those come back on the market.

But really I'm lookin for a Mobo that can handle Crossfire of 2 6950s, gonna run 3 HDDs with 2 of those in Raid. And the most important thing is reliability and ease of use. Suggestions?

Thanks guys!

Doesn't seem like the LE is able to run 2x PCIe cards at x8 am I right?

What about the Asus M-Pro, I don't seem to see the regular pro on Newegg.com.

I can recommend the MSI P67A-GD65. One nice feature is a little Overclock button right on the board. It will handle your two video cards. But from all my research, it seems just about the same as the Asus P8P67 Pro, so it probably comes down to personal preference. I just chose the MSI because it the B3 version was available before the Asus B3 version.

Oh god MSI boards! Oh GOD!

I never had good experience with MSI, I was building a P55 rig for my mate and the board lit up (I fully grounded myself and followed all basic safety procedures). Had to RMA it, but it took a month until the replacement arrived.

I'm glad that nearly all P67 mobos on newegg are sold out, haha. Guess I'll wait a bit and hope the Extreme 4 pops back up.
