The product

To get to know the motherboard better, we will take a tour of it, to see where the different components are placed, and how they look. For starters, we can see that the board is ATX-sized, and it is made of black PCB. The color theme is black, with blue sockets and cooling profiles. 

ASUS have, as always, worked a lot on the design of their cooling profiles, even though the profiles on this board is not that wild. There are no heatpipes or profile between MOSFET and the north bridge. Maybe to save money, and make the product cheaper. There are three fan-hearders, besides the CPU cooler. A 3-pin Power fan is placed at the top at the 4th memory socket, a 4-pin case cooler connection is placed between the I/O panel and MOSFET. Lastly, we got the 3-pin case case cooler connection which is placed under the north bridge. 



There are four memory sockets running dual-channel. P8P67 supports up to 1600 MHz, but can actually reach 2400 MHz when overclocking. If you wish, you can install up to 32 GB RAM, but it requires four 8 GB ram modules, and they are pretty rare these days. 

At the right side is the EPU switch, that you can use, if you do not want to turn it on by software. Next to that is the MemOK! button, which makes sure that every RAM module is compatible with this ASUS board. You can also see the 24-pin ATX PSU connection at the bottom. 



ASUS P8P67 uses a pretty big cooling profile for the northbridge. The new P67 Express does not release a lot of heat, so it could be smaller. But for cases with a bad airflow, the big profile makes a difference. 

You can also see the 8 SATA ports, two are light blue, and they are for SATA2, and the white is for the built in Intel SATA3 controller, while the dark blue are for the Marvel SATA3 controller. They are all angled at a 90 degrees, which makes sure that the graphics card does not cover them, and make them unusable. All the Intel SATA ports can run RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10. 

There is also an USB 3.0 front panel header between the SATA ports and the RAM sockets. The front panel does not come with the board, but can be bought separately. P8P67, which is tested in another review, comes with a panel header. 



Here are all of the internal I/O headers, which are S/PDIF sound, IEEE1394a (FireWire), USB2.0, 1x COM-port and lastly at the right, the headers for the case, where you can use the ASUS Q-connector that comes with the board, and makes the installation a bit easierIf you have good eyes, you can also spot the TPU chip, which is at the right side of the TPU marking.

 



ASUS P8P67 have 2x PCI-Express 2.0 x16 ports, but the blue one runs at x16 speed, while the other one can run at 4x speed, but only at 1x as default, as it shares bandwidth with the two PCI-Express 2.0 x1 ports, which we also find on the board with the USB 3.0 controller, which has been connected through a x1 port. We also find three PCI-ports, even though not many are using these anymore.

Even though there are only two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 ports, whereas one of them only runs at x4 at max, this board supports Quad-GPU CrossFireX. I cannot recommend CrossFireX on this board though, because I think that you need at least x8 speed on every port to get enough bandwidth. 



ASUS P8P67 uses the P67 chipset, and that is why it only supports 2nd generation of the Core i-series. This also means that the board has an Intel LGA 1155 CPU socket, so it is possible to use Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs with 32nm, but because of the P67 Express chipset, you cannot use the built in graphics processor (iGPU/iGP).

 

If we take a look of the external connections, the I/O panel, we will find (from left to right) 2x PS/2, Toslink S/PDIF, 1x BT GO!, 6x USB 2.0, 1x Firewire, 1x Gigabit ethernet, 2x USB 3.0, and lastly a 6-way audio connection, which makes it for a 8-channel sound connection. 

The last thing we will take a look at, before we go to the BIOS, is the back of the board, but since there is nothing of interest there, we will go on.
