New to computer building, actually my first build.

been waiting for the B3 1155 boards to come out again.

found some in stock today over at Compuplus so i ordered one.

Got the P8P67 M Pro board but now i am questioning myself.

whats the difference between the Mpro and pro?

i used ASUS comparison chart but the language is a bit technical for me

P8P67 PRO vs P8P67-M PRO

Did i do ok by ordering the Mpro, should i cancel my order. I know i Jumped the gun but i have not been able to find any ASUS 1155 boards in stock so as soon as i saw this i ordered it.

help :)

  1. It's a smaller microATX form factor board. But it does have basically the same features, including the Pro feature to do CrossfireX/SLI @ x8/x8.

  2. so there is no "real" negative to the difference. Maybe a few less slots and it might run a bit hotter since everything is closer together?

    Another question-will standard CPU coolers fit or do i need to buy a micro CPU cooler?

    Anything special when buying my case? i didn't intend to buy a small case, mid or full size tower-will it fit properly or do i need to buy a micro case for micro boards.

    Thanks so much for the help!
  3. Also-another question.

    Will my video card fit properly in both the micro ATX board AND a mid to large tower case?

    i have a feeling it will fit the MOBO slot but then won't reach the back of the case.

    i'm thinking i should return the micro board and wait till i can get a normal sized ATX
  4. Called ASUS and asked. Said the Micro ATX board would not fit properly with the video card i have. Returned the board-will keep looking.

    Thanks for all the help WR2
  5. I typically do not recommend m/u/ATX MOBOs unless you are building an HTPC or 'small PC' e.g. basic desktop. The ASUS P8P67 PRO is fine if you don't need SATA3 RAID.

    Maximus IV Extreme {2~3WAY, x8...x8, Marvell 9182 [ASUS typo? 9128] RAID 0/1, Dual Intel LAN}
    P8P67 WS Revolution {2~3WAY & 4-WAY Quadro only, x8...x8, Marvell 9128 RAID 0/1, Dual Intel LAN}

    P8P67 DELUXE {2-WAY, x8/x8 + x4 open, Marvell 9128 RAID 0/1, USB3 Ft Panel}

    P8P67 EVO {2-WAY, x8/x8 + x4 open, Marvell 9120 no RAID, Dual Intel LAN}
    P8P67 PRO {2-WAY, x8/x8 + x4 open, Marvell 9120 no RAID}

    P8P67 LE {cheap}
    P8P67 {cheap}
    P8P67-M {cheap}
