ASUS P8P67 (Sandy Bridge) Deluxe Motherboard Review
20 February 2013
Conclusion: ASUS has really done an outstanding job with their new P8P67 Deluxe motherboard. This board has so many features that it would take a book just to list every feature available to this board. Highlights include the DIGI+ VRM, the DIP2, and BT GO! And many more features too numerous to name here. In terms of performance this board is slightly higher performing than the other boards I’ve tested with the 2600K CPU.
Conclusion: Final Words This is the first motherboard I personally have used on that has a UEFI BIOS and I have to say it is a nice change from the traditional BIOS. Some may argue that the UEFI BIOS is still in its infancy and if this is the case, I think we are looking at something great in the future. From what I can see, the ASUS BIOS engineers have done a good job in producing something that is straightforward and easy to use.
Summary: ASUS has another potential award winning board on its hands in the P8P67 Pro. What the board does not have in extras and bling, it more than makes up for in raw performance. The board brings a well designed layout and sharp looks to the table. This attention to detail is most evident with the placement of the primary PCI-Express x1 slot in a location that remains usable and accessible even with a larger video card in play.
No real complaints in using the board at all.
Summary: ASUS' latest foray in to the Intel LGA1155 market shows up in a competitive package, the P8P67 Pro. The board combines the features and technologies you've come to expect from ASUS and promises not to disappoint. This motherboard also happens to target the sub-$180 market so it will be on the list for budget minded builds.
ASUS P8P67 Sandy Bridge LGA1155 ATX Motherboard Review

Summary: But, the journey doesn’t stop there. The P8P67 ability to overclock is quite impressive. It makes very efficient use of the CPU offset voltages quickly pushing the 4.8GHz barrier and nearly matching its bigger EVO sibling. Granted, it might take a little more from supported component voltages, but it’s a further testament to ASUS’ DIY user continuity initiative.
Summary: My experience with the P8P67 was excellent from start to finish. The board did a 48 hour torture test without incident and continued to do everything I asked of it. Overclocking the P8P67 was an awesome and extremely easy experience. You can’t argue with the results and even those new to overclocking should be able to achieve great results with this setup.
Summary: ASUS' P67 chipset product portfolio can get fairly confusing at times with the slew of "P8P67" models. This time we are taking a look at the "vanilla" P8P67. Though you could say its vanilla with a lot of twists as this board offers a "B3" stepping version of the supporting chipset and sports a very solid feature set for "vanilla.
Excerpt: In January of this year, Intel launched their long awaited second generation Core line of processors, codenamed Sandy Bridge. These new CPUs are now based on a new socket and hence a completely new motherboard platform. The LGA 1155 socket that is required for a Sandy Bridge processor, can only be found on boards with the new Intel P67 or H67 chipsets, codenamed Cougar Point.
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
Cons: Lots of clicks to access to advanced BIOS menu, Not designed as a multi GPU motherboard
Conclusion: Before Sandy Bridge, overclocking your CPU involved changing half a dozen settings to try to obtain the highest clock speed. This was because there were so many different ways to obtain your maximum frequency; things were a bit complicated even if you are an experienced computer enthusiast.
