post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
does this MB is B3?
witch one should i get: this one or the gigabyte P67A-UD4-BE, because if the asrock is B3 to, i don't see any differences.
and can i setup with this MB, windows 7 on SSD with all tweaks and stuffs?
because i don't see, that he has this ACHI board, only ACPI.
thnx.

IMO Gigabyte > Asrock. Also the Gigabyte one has 12 power phase delivery vs the Asrock one which has 8+2

Nothing wrong with the Extreme 4, it'll run your SSD just fine. It's much cheaper too! Even the much cheaper Pro3 has AHCI and UEFI, but you can't run a multi gpu setup with that.

Another thing to consider is the layouts between the UD4 and the Extreme4 being quite different, so you might have preference for one over the other based on what other add-on cards you have.

Yes they are pretty much the same, and your SSD will work just fine with any of them.

They both use the P67 chipset so the features will be similar. Purchase the one you like the most.

It will say on the box whether it is B3 stepping or not. Most if not all B2 stepping should already be recalled at this point, just check carefully.

ACPI has nothing to do with AHCI.
ACPI is a power management feature.
AHCI is one of the modes in which the SATA ports work (You can usually select IDE for legacy Operating Systems, AHCI enables some advanced capabilities, and RAID which enables you to combine more than 1 HDD/SSD for more performance or reliability).

Don't worry, the Asrock has AHCI.

Now, this I don't quite understand. Just ensure after plugging in the SSD in your motherboard to select AHCI, and not IDE in the BIOS. As I said before AHCI enables a few features that aren't supported on IDE mode.

Also install Windows 7, is the only Windows OS that has TRIM which makes sure your SSD doesn't degrade!

If you want to learn more about the Asrock P67 motherboards I would take a look around this thread.
