ASUS P8P67 deluxe vs Alternatives - PLEASE HELP

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I cannot seem to find a replacement at MicroCenter in Columbus, Ohio anytime soon for the original ASUS P8P67 Pro I got so the next best option in the ASUS line is the Deluxe.

If am willing to spend the difference then I have to be open to competitors around that price, $239. This will be an 1155 build of course focused on the 2500K. I do not plan to ever use triple graphic cards so I don't need the extra stuff for that.

Does anyone think that there is a better 1155 P67 board for that price? Or is the ASUS Deluxe the way to go?

I just didn't know if there was a better quality company to go with such as Biostar or Asrock. I had a good experience with Biostar years back when I had to RMA a board. All support was decent and in English and it was a fairly fast process. Have yet to know how ASUS is with that or the current quality of their boards. I know at one point ASUS dipped in quality, but used to be the king of the mountain.

Willing to go with another Manufacturer if they can equal the Deluxe.

Please give me your thoughts (specifics please).

You should look at Gigabyte. I went from Asus to Gigabyte, not only due to quality but also Customer Support. The equiv to the deluxe will be the UD5, it has a couple less features but has more VRM's and some other features the Deluxe does not have.

Are you an owner of the B1 or B2 rev boards and you want a B3? You can always call Asus directly and they'll advanced RMA you.

So what you are saying is no extra gas to MicroCenter? How long does advanced RMA take? I have heard horror stories with their RMA process. Do you think they would let me pay the difference for an upgrade to the Deluxe or is it even worth it?

I personally have no experience with it, but I've helped tons of members recently and they've all been able to get advanced RMA from calling Asus directly.

This is the number for ASUS tech support. 1-888-678-3688

Best of luck

UPDATE: My local MicroCenter rep said they would be getting a truck with P8P67Pro boards this weekend. If that is true and I am able to pick up the B3 revision of my existing board is there any real good reasons to go to the Deluxe version?

More features, that's it really. Better for overclocks in the long run.

So 16 vx 12 phase, front panel usb 3.0, differently mounted heatsinks, error code display, and physical switches for OC on the board. Did I miss anything?

Yeah, I will be using a soundcard or external DAC anyway. So no loss there. The power phase should be more than enough on the Pro. And the heatsinks are push pin vs screwed.

Obviously the error code display is nice. The internal switches are not something I am familiar with or know if I would use more than initial setup.
