Help with MotherBoard! Assist please

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello guys...

I have a question about the ASUS P8P67-M mobo... will I have problems with this microATX mobo (specs below) and what are the differences between the P8P67-M and P8P67 (Regular ATX) mobo (PLS NOTHING ABOUT SIZE)??

I will get my i5 2500k very soon (12 days max)

I have a Chieftec Big Tower case... Click here for picture!

I have Cooler Master GeminiII - Picture here! - at this moment it works on socket 775, can I upgrade it to the P8P67-M microATX mobo (socket1155)?

I am wondering if I will get any heat problems or performance issues with that microATX mobo, and will I be able to OC my SandyBridge @4,5GHz ??

I also have 2x2GB DDR3 RAM @1333MHz that I am planning to OC @1,6GHz .

Sorry if these are noobish questions, but I've never used microATX before.

Thanks in advance, Razorator

@All

Please answer! The P8P67-M is selling quickly, and it will be unavailable soon, don't want to wait for a month to buy one...
I need to know the answers to my questions before I can buy this mobo.

If you can answer at least one question listed above, please do... it's urgent.

And what would be the better option, the ATX or mATX version?

Are you a kid or something?
Begging like you're some 12 year old video game forumer, and using terrible english, like the word "Pls" isn't going to get anyone to help you. And bumping a post after four hours is just plain rude.

Um.....are you kickthecan?
I'm on alot of places...

And now that the OP has calmed down slightly, let me see...
First, the "M" version has fewer options in the BIOS than the regular P8P67.
Second, there's a chart floating around showing the differences between the boards. (also on hardforum). Third, there are other differences that you can probably find in a review, or on Asus' webpage. And the M board doesn't have digital VRM, and only has 4+1 phases, I think. Not the best if you want to overclock 5+ghz.

Just do a search for yourself. Read some threads. Don't be lazy. I don't even own one of these boards, and I found comparisons pretty easily, by just being bored and looking around.

Well, excuse me for my "terrible english" , i do not really care about my english when i'm on a deadline!

I want to now what this motherboard is really like before I buy it! I've read on the internet (I was looking for more than 2 hours, i'm not lazy) that the microATX has heat problems, and that (in some cases) it needs water cooling (which I can not afford right now)...

I don't know that much about PC components, so I asked you to answer me as fast as possible. They will go out of stock soon (maybe tomorrow) and I want to know > will I encounter any problems with it <... if I won't, I'll buy it, if I could encounter problems, I don't want to spend money on it.

So excuse me for bumping, but if this is the right motherboard for me, I would like to know it now while they still have them in stock... You know what most people say, BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY...

Thank you for your help after all...

And thank you Mr. Chocolate for that link you gave me...

So it seems after all that the ASRock P67 EXTREME4 is the best solution for me... now I just need to find one...

Why don't you google it? Or better yet, look at the asus website and see for yourself?

And if you have to ask about OC'ing your "sandbridge" then I highly doubt you will be able to.

I GOOGLED IT!

I have searched more than a hundred times for my answers... I couldn't find answers for all my questions, so I posted.

I'm not dumb, I always search extensively before I post!

So don't post "Google it" because I always do...

And I went to many sites (inc. Asus), and I know the specifications of the Motherboard... but I wondered can I attach my GeminiII cooler to the mobo (which is 775 socket), will I have issues, and can I make 5GHz Overclocks... simple questions, but I don't know the answers to it (and I don't need to know them).

Turns out, the ASRock P67 Extreme4 is more than I'm looking for, and it's about the same price as the mATX.
Going to order it tomorrow!

thanks again for your help.
