Summary: The P8P67 EVO Socket 1155 ATX motherboard is a solid choice for those still in the market for a Sandybridge motherboard. It offers some great features, but isn't one of those bundles that runs up the price by including every bell and whistle imaginable.
Pros: » Pretty good overclocker, » Good bang for the buck, » Tons of features
Conclusion: After diving into the P8P67 EVO and throwing everything we could at it, I came out extremely impressed. This good looking board has the performance to back it up and a strong feature set including an Intel NIC, Bluetooth v2.1, and 8 internal Sata ports.
Summary: In the beginning of this review we asked the question of what makes an enthusiast motherboard and does product segmentation really play a big factor in what you can do. Having used several P67 motherboards up to this review we have come to the conclusion that a little goes a long ways.
Pros: Easy to use UEFI BIOS, Extra space between video card slots, Digi+ VRM for stable power, Onboard Bluetooth, Gigabit Intel LAN
Cons: Lots of clicks to access to advanced BIOS menu, Chipset cooler not connected to PWM
Summary: The P8P67 EVO is the second mainstream P67 board that we have looked at since Sandy Bridge launched at the beginning of January, the first being the MSI P67A-GD65. So how does the ASUS offering stack up against MSI's board? Pretty darn well, I'd say.
Conclusion: IMPORTANT: Although the rating and final score mentioned in this conclusion are made to be as objective as possible, please be advised that every author perceives these factors differently at various points in time.
