P8687 vs P867-M Pro

Hi, All,

I'm a bit lost as to which board is better between these two. On the actual ASUS compare page, it makes it out to seem like the P867 has more features, but they also don't always seem to be consistent in comparison text, so it's not making my decision easy here.

The two boards in question are here:

P867: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8P67/

P867-M Pro: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8P67M_PRO/

I realize the -M Pro is a micro atx. I DO plan to overclock, and I am undecided on Crossfire. I currently run an AMD 5870, and don't feel the need to do crossfire, and considering I've never been interested in it or SLI in the past, I may well not here in the future. At the same time, it may be nice to leave that option open (the micro board appears better for this), but I am NOT going to let this one thing be the deciding factor. I'd like the 'overall' better board of these two, thus I am posting for opinions.

I currently have one PCI card in my machine for Wireless N from DLink. I note the micro atx does not have a regular PCI slot, whereas the standard ATX board has three.

Any help, opinions, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  1. The Micro-ATX board doesn't have all of the overclocking options in the BIOS. Based on that alone I would go with the full ATX board.

    How about full overclocking options and SLI/CrossFire and PCI? ASUS P8P67 Pro is easily the most popular P67 board out there.
