Summary: The P67 Sabertooth was first announced during a press conference at CES 2011, the reaction from the crowd was extremely supportive of the new design. Admittedly, I was skeptical of the board and for a variety of reasons.
Pros: Twelve Thermal Sensors, Thermal Armor, Military Class TUF Components, Q-Led Debug System, 5 Year Warranty, Armor is a Great Canvas for Modders
Cons: Thermal Armor makes installing screws difficult, Access to PCIe tables difficult without a "tool", Mobo cooling fan not included
Summary: The name has always been synonymous with quality and performance, and the Sabertooth P67 motherboard certainly doesn't disappoint. We actually got a better overclock from it than the Maximus IV Extreme we looked at previously.
Pros: » Pretty good overclocker, » Good bang for the buck, » Tons of features, » Innovative and effective cooling design
Cons: » No active cooling included (recommended option for water cooled or passively cooled systems), » Priced in the higher end of P67 boards, » Only 2 external USB 3.0 ports
Summary: The ASUS Sabertooth P67 mainboard is certain to garner attention from onlookers. Perhaps one of the reasons is many of the mainboards out there have started to blend together with the same general look.
Conclusion: Overall the P67 Sabertooth is definitely an adequate performer in all respects. The P67 Sabertooth comes with plenty of unique features such as the thermal shield along with plenty of nice features such as the addition of numerous USB 3.0 ports on the back and front panel.
Summary: This isn't the first time we've seen a motherboard telling us that it is built with military grade components. What it actually means though is that it uses highly resilient components that are resistant to heat, abuse, substandard power, and extended periods of extreme use.
Pros: True Military Rated Components, MemOK! and three separate SATA controllers, DIGI+VRM: Highly tuned VRM and Turbo Performance, Thermal Armor: Unique opportunity for modders, Very attractive design and concept, Exemplary overclocking and stability, US Military Approved With Certificate
Summary: The Sabertooth P67 motherboard is the latest member of ASUS' TUF series of products. The board is built to be champion, with some of the best performance we have seem to date out of the Intel P67 platform.
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.
Pros: UEFI Introduces Graphical User Interface BIOS replacement, DIGI, VRM 8+2 Enable digital precision voltage control, MemOK! Increases memory compatibility for bootup, ASUS DIP2 with TPU and EPU, Four total SATA 6Gb/s storage channels, NEC-D720200F1 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 controller, Supports ATI CrossF...
Summary: Asus' Sabertooth P67 is a very good motherboard. Its performance and power consumption are solid, the BIOS is excellent, and there are plenty of overclocking options for folks looking to go to town on their K-series Sandy Bridge CPUs.
