    ASUS P8P67 Pro Motherboard

    ASUS P8P67 Pro is better version from its predecessor of ASUS P8P67 board. It is clear that ASUS P8P67-M Pro is positioned much higher than the fee ASUS P8H67-M Evo chipset Intel H67. First, developers do not need to install the board, "tying" the integrated graphics core. Second, a few dollars in savings to replace the PCI slots on a slot PCI Express. The fact that Intel chipsets do not support the sixth series of bus PCI, forcing engineers to install an additional controller. Third, little was reduced equipment cost. In the retail board ASUS P8P67-M Pro is worth more than the ASUS P8H67-M Evo. This should not be surprised - the final price influenced by the fact that by itself costs P67 chipset ASUS higher than H67.

    In Asus P8P67 Pro we can find many of the features already familiar to us from other motherboards Asus. For example, the button MemOK. This provides strong start, even if you have problems with memory, comfortable wide latches on the connectors for video cards and slots for memory modules with snaps on one side only. System LEDs Q-Led tell at what stage of interrupted downloads. Switch TPU (TurboV Processing Unit) will automatically overclock the processor, and switch EPU (Energy Processing Unit) will enable more optimal in terms of energy efficiency modes.

    Complete set of cards ASUS P8P67-M Pro cannot be called rich: the number of standard components is only four cables SerialATA. It should be noted that not all power supplies have a large number of SATA connectors and adapters, some have to purchase separately. And depending on the needs of the user it will also need to purchase a bracket with ports USB, FireWire, COM and LPT. The board also supports AMD CrossFireX technology and NVIDIA SLI, but the corresponding bridges in the configuration there.

    ASUS P8P67 Pro

    The P8P67 Pro comes in a stylish blue color with a dark brown PCB and is characterized by a clean, uncluttered layout with plenty of space to easily install or remove new hardware. For cooling the chipset and the voltage converter ASUS uses two passive cooling elements made of aluminum. A heatpipe cooling and an on-board start and reset button and a Clear CMOS button is waived. The placement of the cooling elements provides sufficient space within the CPU socket for large-sized CPU coolers. Here, too, eight practical and perfectly placed to 90 ° angled SATA connectors. Furthermore, the ASUS P8P67 Pro donated a 12 +2 phase, digital power supply, two PCI Express 2.0 x16 ports (Dual mode x8/x8) and four DIMM slots (max. 32 GB) DDR3 2133 (OC) / 1866 ( OC) / 1600/1333/1066, USB 3.0 and 6 GB / s SATA3 support, a Realtek ALC892 8-Channel HD onboard sound chip as well as numerous features such as a Bluetooth module, ASUS Q-Design, MemOK, and much more.

    The I / O panel includes a Bluetooth module, six USB 2.0/1.1 ports and two USB 3.0 ports (blue), two e-SATA (eSATA 1x Power), a firewire, a Gigabit Ethernet port, two PS2 connector for keyboard and mouse as well as optical and digital SPDIF inputs and six analog inputs and outputs for sound. Under the DDR3 memory soldered four slots, which are equipped with only one latch from the upper side of the board, with another set lock. The manufacturer claimed modes DDR3 1066 / 1333 / 1600 / 1866 (OC) / 2133 (OC) / 2200 (OC). The product description says nothing about support for DDR3 modules 2400, but this frequency can be set to the latest BIOS (with the standard firmware it was not). The maximum amount of up to an impressive 32 GB! In connection with this announcement we can expect memory kits 2 x 8 GB and 4 x 8 GB so even with low-power 1.35 for the nominal mode, and 1.5 for overclocking whales.

    Mounting holes of the cooling system for the new platform s1155 is identical to the previous s1156, this fact alone should brighten up a little bit difficult transition. CPU sockets themselves two generations show similar design installation and mounting of the processor, but the hardware is incompatible. Consider the system of supply Digi + VRM. The power supply system impressive, as a consequence of the processor does not go hungry. Let us now see how cool the components. For this purpose, three mounted radiator.


    Chipset

    Intel chipsets are still deprived of the other fashioned built-in support standard - USB 3.0. Therefore, its implementation is fully vested in the controller of industry, in this case, the company NEC. One such marked D720200F1 is slightly above the port SATA. Intel chipsets sixth series of the updated revision B3 with the corrected error has started coming to the producers and the new board will be available soon. The new processors are just as good, the new chip does, except for the absence of the defect, will not differ from the old, and we decided to continue the interrupted series of tests prematurely boards LGA1155. This review, we fully dedicate board Asus P8P67 Pro is not in alphabetical order and not only because it is one of the largest manufacturers of motherboards.

    With the ability to pre-read a few boards LGA1155 different manufacturers, we at once isolated from their boards Asus. Mainly because the company has equipped its board of various new features, and would like to talk about them a little more than allows a synoptic overview of several boards. In addition, traditionally prepared by a whole line of boards with different functionality, so much has been said to be true for other models in the series.

    BIOS Features

    As with the P67 ASUS Sabertooth P8P67 Pro comes with the EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface) BIOS on the market. This is based on a graphical interface BIOS can be controlled by mouse, for example setting the boot order by drag and drop. The ASUS DIGI + VRM technology allows a very precise voltage monitoring. Power consumption, load line calibration, VRM-frequency switching times and phases can thus be adjusted very precisely. This reduces the power loss and the PC is gaining in efficiency and performance.

    However, in the settings we can change a lot, in particular, to make a start mode Advanced Mode . For all the novelty of EFI BIOS, with a mass of features and options, different looks and ability to manage not only the keyboard, and mouse, very pleased that, in general, preserved and easily recognizable well-honed over the years of development is still quite convenient structure BIOS of Asus. As before, the bulk of the parameters of interest are concentrated in the section Ai Tweaker . Most of us are familiar, but there were also new. For example, we can now not only include energy-saving technologies by using the EPU Power Saving Mode , but also to choose the right level of energy efficiency. Such flexibility also provides many other options, for example Load-Line Calibration and Phase Control. Some parameters moved to separate sections - a CPU Power Management and DRAM Timing Control.
    • In the Advanced you have the opportunity to control the settings of the processor, chipset, additional controllers and interfaces.
    • In the section Monitor You can check the core voltage, temperature, adjust the fan speed.
    • In the section Boot you can set up a polling order of the starting device and a number of other parameters related to the stage of system boot.
    • The Tool includes a number of us are familiar functions such as updating the firmware with a built-in utility EZ Flash and save setting profiles in the section OC Profile. There was also something new for the motherboard Asus - the ability to view information in the SPD memo

    AI Suite :

    There is something news in this called as AI Suite. Many tools integrated into the software system AI Suite II . In this approach have its pluses and minuses. Even with a high-speed network access is not everyone wants to swing a huge archive of about 300 MB when you need only adjust the fan speed, for example. However, the download will complete all other options do not exist, but you can choose to install only one set of tools that it needs. Apart from others, the very first panel is a button Auto Tuning . It opens the appropriate section Utilities TurboV EVO, which will automatically overclock the system. When you press the buttons on the majority AI Suite II open drop-down menu where you can select the desired program. For the button Tool the very first hidden utility TurboV EVO .

    Separate utility DIGI + VRM allows you to manage advanced features that have emerged thanks to the digital processor power management scheme. Utility EPU allow you to choose the right level of energy efficiency. With the help of FAN Xpert it is easy to choose one of the predefined modes adjust the fan speed or set up a profile in its sole discretion. Utility Asus Probe II monitors indications of monitoring: voltage, temperature, fan speed. With the help of Sensor Recorder easily monitor the dynamics of change in voltage, temperature and fan speed in time. Opportunities Utility BT GO! Is largely determined by ability is connected via Bluetooth devices. You can exchange files, synchronize contacts and directories, play music, use the device as a remote control and access the Internet. Button Monitor Panel AI Suite II conceals the possibility to control the parameters of the monitoring, the frequency and CPU utilization.

    Quite naturally, the button Update called the utility to update the firmware. In addition, the utility MyLogo we can start to change an image that is displayed on the initial stage of loading fees. Use the System Information We can learn basic information about the board, processor, memory timings, sewn into the SPD. Button Settings allows you to configure a list of installed programs, change their color scheme.

    Overclocking Support

    By overclocking (overclocking), one tries to achieve a higher overall system performance. With the very large, automatic overclocking tools and DIGI + VRM - Digital Power Design Technology - We leave the ASUS P8P67 Pro complete control of overclocking on the CPU 2500K-I5. Only manual setting affects the multiplier increase. All BIOS settings to default, or we can AUTO. The system achieves a CPU clock of 4'900MHz with a bus clock (BCLK) of 100 MHz and a multiplier of x 49 of a CPU voltage at 1.48V.

    Package Content
    • P8P67PRO User Guide (User's Guide motherboard)
    • DIGI + VRM / BT GO! User Guide (User's Guide software components DIGI + VRM and BT GO!)
    • Quick Start Guide (installation instructions);
    • ASUS P8P67 Series SATA Mode Notice (leaflet on the treatment of the SATA ports).
    • Two cables SATA 6 Gb / s;
    • Two cables SATA 3 Gb / s;

    Conclusion

    Due to the richness and flexibility of settings, work with the board Asus P8P67 Pro more than interesting – fascinating. Particularly pleased with the appearance of EFI BIOS settings that affect energy efficiency, you can now not only include economic mode without the aid of tools, but also to manage them. Everything is very clear - turn EPU Power Saving Mode and immediately see how the reduced voltage on the CPU to allow a dynamic adjustment of the number of active phases of power by using the Phase Control and watch as reduced energy consumption alone. Of course, not every option in the EFI BIOS is so clear and easily visible effect, but in the course of studying the features of the board there is a pleasant feeling of complete control over the system and its settings.

    Good points for the same for good performance and the overclocking support. These are useful features like onboard Bluetooth and sensible, easy-to-use tools. The BIOS is very clearly laid out. Only the lack of Crossfire bridge disturbs the otherwise very good impression. Unfortunately, the more you work with the board, the more you discover minor errors and deficiencies. This is normal, considering the magnitude of the changes, as long as they were eliminated as quickly as possible.

    In short: The ASUS P8P67 Pro provides for a reasonable price is a good platform for entry into the new Intel Sandy Bridge technology.
