P8P67-M dont purchase this board

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
asus p8p67-m dont recommend to anyone to purchase , this board i bought has been nothing but problems. multiplier doesnt work correctly niether does speedstep

asus stated to me clearly they dont recommend overclocking motherboards, i wonder why then they are endorsing these boards so much everywhere.


bad quality for asus to release a board such as this one that is inferior to the others in stability

Jen

here is a list of options for this bios , dont mind the settings so much as to enable , disable as i changed them several times trying different ones

If you had read the threads, you would know that the M board isn't designed for pushing chips. It's designed as a low cost HTPC type setup and is fine for people who want to run stock. The fact that you can't even set fixed voltages should be a giveaway.

Thats why you get the Deluxe for overclocking.

Indeed, the m-pro version is for oc (I think).

Read the description/purpose before purchasing for OC'ing.

Not true..
The H67 boards are the ones that weren't meant for overclocking...

You are correct however that the M was not meant to "push a chip"
It should however still be able to get the chip pretty high, if not max it out at 24/7 safe voltages.

that is the H series you speak about , this one states clearly that it is easy oc which isnt the case for the one i purchased.

is the better board and didnt know of the phase difference nor did i know of the bios was different from one to the other.

reason for this board was one reason . one it fit the case i had and the pro version wouldnt.

if this board isnt meant to oc then why have the options in bios for it

the problem with this board is you set multiplier to anything in bios and it wont stay it will revert back to stock multiplier.

second problem is speedstep doesnt work ,



now thats not even pushing the board as far as i am concerned . set multiplier to a modest 39x or anything higher than stock it wont stay under load

and yes i should have read more before purchasing but i was misinformed by the easy oc it advertised itself to be

Offset voltages are not ideal for maxing out a chip because you wind up BSODing at idle or at 1 thread at high voltages, especially after load switching, because the delta just gets too extreme. Starts getting very problematic once you exceed 1.4v.

i'm not bsoding , the problem is multiplier isnt staying where i select it . this makes it go from a overclock state to a stock state .

So when you watch it in cpuz and put it under load (prime 95 or whatever you want), it doesn't go up to the multiplier you set it at?
