Information overload!

Hi,

I've searched a lot, but I'm actually finding too much info about the Asus P67. My question is this.

All I plan to do for OC'ing is run the "auto-tune" function on the i5 2500k. Does it matter which board I choose between the P8P67 M, LE, normal, or Pro boards? I have no interest in voltage tweaking, just the auto oc.

Additional info: single GPU (no need for SLI), 8GB ram, 64G SSD SATAIII main drive and 1TB SATAII data drive.

Thanks for the help :love:

Are you looking for an ATX (P8P67, P8P67 LE, P8P67 Pro) or uATX (P8P67-M) Form Factor?

ATX Form Factor - 12 inch x 9.6 inch ( 30.5 cm x 24.4 cm )

uATX Form Factor - 9.6 inch x 8.8 inch ( 24.4 cm x 22.3 cm )

Do you need/want Bluetooth support (P8P67, P8P67 Pro)?

I don't care about Bluetooth support, and my case would handle either form factor. Thanks for bringing that up, though, it's something I hadn't thought about. But if those things don't matter that much, do they all end up being nearly the same?

-These boards have 1 PCI slot

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|13-131-685^13-131-685-TS%2C13-131-690^13-131-690-TS

As you can see, not much in the way of BIOS options

-These boards have multiple slots but none are doing ant SLI with 2nd slot limited to X4

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|13-131-681^13-131-681-TS%2C13-131-689^13-131-689-TS%2C13-131-687^13-131-687-TS%2C13-131-686^13-131-686-TS

One (P8P67 LE ) has TPU which appears to be what you are looking for:

Quote:
TPU - Increase Platform Performance Instantly with Self Optimized Settings while retaining Full System Stability


-These can all do twin GFX cards

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|13-131-679^13-131-679-TS%2C13-131-682^13-131-682-TS%2C13-131-695^13-131-695-TS%2C13-131-691^13-131-691-TS%2C13-131-693^13-131-693-TS

All but the P8P67-M PRO can do the auto overclock thing

Double check w/ Asus web site as I have found newegg's data not always to be all inclusive.

For things that you care about they are pretty much the same. The more expensive motherboards that you've mentioned have features that you've indicated that you won't use.

The P8P67 LE is the cheapest board and meets all of your requirements.
