Solved Intel p67 and p67 b3 Tags: Motherboards Intel Last response: June 26, 2011 10:52 AM in Motherboards Share lpiotoole June 22, 2011 12:45:24 AM just wondering if b3 is better and worth paying another $20 for? http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8P6... http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=... thanks for replies More about : intel p67 p67 rolli59 a c 1163 V Motherboard a c 154 å Intel June 22, 2011 12:51:50 AM Well the Asus P8P67 PRO is the better board out of the two since it can SLI/CF at x8 x8 while the second PCIe x16 slot on the Gigabyte board runs at x4 speed. They both have revision B3 chipset after the recall earlier this year! m 0 l Leaps-from-Shadows a c 107 V Motherboard June 22, 2011 1:02:15 AM You won't be able to find a non-B3 chipset board in the US any more. Other countries maybe, but not worth risking it in any case. Those two boards aren't comparable, as one can do SLI and the other can't. The UD4 from Gigabyte is the one that's comparable to the Pro from ASUS. m 0 l Related resources MSI P67A-G43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 help - Forum MSI P67A-C43 B3 Intel P67 Mobo - S/PDIF Coax Sound Issues - Forum Asus Sabertooth P67 B3 only 4 mem slots? - Forum Slow booting with ASUS P67 Sabertooth B3 - Forum Help OCing an i5 2500k on an ASRock P67 Extreme4 (B3) board? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Intel discovered that the chipset's four SATA 2 ports could fail after being used for a while. The B3 version fixes that problem. m 0 l lpiotoole June 26, 2011 10:52:24 AM compulsivebuilder said:In case you are wondering, the B3 version has a fix from Intel.
