The boards for P67 really make little difference. As long as its a half decent board, you'll get a great overclock out of your chip. So just pick ANY MOTHERBOARD that fits what features YOU need.
And you will NEVER be able to convince me that ANYTHING made by Gigacrap is "the best".
They offered a amd mobo, how wrong is that?
Are you joking? what you think reviewers buy their boards?
To be very honest I bought my first GB mobo X58A-UD5 rev 2.0 i did a review because i found that all the reviews on the net were all BS, and well i posted it on XS and here, it got a lot of people excited because they have never seen a review done like that, and gigabyte offered me more boards to review, its something that asus does, and msi, and well all the mobo companies, they offer mobos to select members of forums review for them. It brings in search hits from the search engines. Google P67A-UD7 review, or X58A-UD5 rev 2.0 review, people come to the forums through those links, so actually no i should be getting paid. I feel as if its my way for giving back to the forums from all the help i have gotten through them. I bring in traffic from the net to OCN and XS and any other forums i post on, on the other hand do you?
I am done with this stupid argument. Think what you want. Just because i like a company they they give me boards to review i get a bunch of people saying i can't express my opinion, well i like GB boards and i use them, i don't work for GB, and i have my own opinions.
lol @ your gigacrap comment, see asus fan boy, if asus sent me boards you wouldn't say any of that.
Fact is I have helped a lot of people here at OCN, i don't have rep for no reason and neither do you, i know my stuff.Edited by Sin0822 - 3/19/11 at 7:20pm
