Asus P8P67 review

The P8P67 takes an early lead in the race to be our favourite P67 motherboard.


LGA1155, ATX, Intel P67 chipset, supports: Core i3, Core i5, Core i7

The rear panel has six USB ports and two USB3 ports, plus there’s a USB3 header to add front ports. An optical S/PDIF accompanies the six minijack outputs. There’s also FireWire and two PS/2 ports for older input devices.

There’s also a built-in a Bluetooth receiver, and apps are available to easily allow your smartphone to control media playback, share an internet connection with your PC, sync files or even remotely control your BIOS settings and overclock your PC. We’re a little sceptical about the need for the last one.

Asus P8P67 Ports

Asus’s interpretation of the new EFI BIOS is the best we’ve seen. The initial screen lets you see your PC’s current status, with constantly updated temperature, voltage and fan speed bars. You can adjust your PC’s power settings here, and even drag-and-drop icons to set your boot priority list. More advanced settings consist of text-based lists with clickable buttons, though, much like other manufacturer’s efforts.

It’s early days, but the P8P67 is a well-designed P67-based motherboard. It has all the features you’re likely to need, and maybe a couple you probably won’t. With USB3 and SATA3, storage devices are well catered for, and the excellent BIOS is a boon for overclockers. Prices for P67 boards are certainly higher than we’d like. Still, this is our pick for the time being, but if you can hold off, we’ll cover more boards next month.
