Bought m/b as part of a new setup. Really easy to setup and great instructions. Loads of room around CPU for custom heat sink. Found seller really good, fast delivery, great packaging (nothing left to chance). Using i5 2500k CPU and 8gb ram, runs brilliantly. Changed stock cooler to cooler master 212. Will report back in a couple of weeks with update. No issues to report at the moment.

I had the P8p67-m Pro, however, I was affected by this Series 6 recall problem. So, I contacted ASUS and they said I could send my board back to where I bought it from (Amazon) and I noticed that'd be faster, so I did that. I wanted to get away from that problem, and this board happened to be £2 more expensive at the time, and I bought this. It also went with my Coolermaster Storm Scout's red/black colour scheme, so I was very happy.
Well, what can I say?

Installation was a blast. Unlike the five or six other boards I've put it in in my time, I didn't have to push the board firmly into the I/O port thingy and get my mum to screw it in. When I got into Windows, I put in the disc from the box and quickly installed the drivers for audio and ethernet ports.

I didn't buy a P67 board and an i7 2600k to not overclock. I "quickly" overclocked it. On my old board (without a voltage setting ability, and it was a faulty board I believe) I managed to get stable at around 4.5ghz (although, due to it's faultyness, it would BSOD in games), so I went straight to 45 multiplier and upped the voltage to a fairly standard Sandy Bridge overclocker's voltage. I probably could go further.

1.4v, 4.5ghz
Idle temp: 35
Load: 67

I could probably do something about the temperatures too, but my heatsink is a Corsair A70 and I'm only putting on one fan as they're so loud! I could always just change the heatsink's fan, but the plastic fan attachment thing, while very easy to install, is very fragile.

So far, the only games I've played are Star Wars The Old Republic, Empire and Shogun Total War and a bit of Crysis, and my single 6870 handles them all beautifully. I've reconsidered getting a 2nd 6870.

Hi fellow Amazon shoppers,
I've always purchased Asus motherboards and I've never been let down. I've matched this motherboard to an i7 2600K; 16GB corsair RAM; and a GeForce 580 3GB all jammed into a uATX case. I'm not an overclocker and am running everything at stock speed, but if you want to you can tweak 'till the cows come home. Everything plugged in and worked first time, easier than expected.
Good packing as always.
Thanks for reading,

Well well well... This is a great motherboard still using it havent had any problems for now (2 month since purchase). It is a powerful motherboard but there are better out there for around the same price. I had previously bought the Asus P8p67 which customers had a 50/50 chance of getting a faulty. However if your looking to buy a motherboard I would wait around for the Asus P9X79 as this is going to be awesome.

It seems the BIOS on this board is very picky about processors. I built up a complete box based on this and then found it wouldn't boot. I gave it to a friend and they had better luck using a different i5 processor. In the end I bought a Zotac ITX board which does everything I need and was a lot easier to set up than this. Advice - read the QVL before you buy.
