Hi,
I am interested in this Asus P8p67 pro Rev.3.0 & 3.1 However, There seems to be some confusion with regard to no. of PCI slots on these two boards. Most sites/sellers indicate 0 or 1 pci slot,while on asus specification it states 3 PCI slots! Can someone please clarify this for me?

Thanks.

REV 3.0 – NEC USB 3.0 controllers
REV 3.1 – ASMedia USB 3.0 controllers
They are the same, except the controllers.

Frankly, I liked the NEC controllers (3.0); less problems. NEC charges more than ASMedia so 'we are' getting the cheaper chips now ;)

Frankly, if I had the choice to pay an extra $25~$50 for an 'Only the Best Chipsets' MOBO I wouldn't think twice. IF I knew I would have near zero problems and the MOBO would be the last component to die.

Intel is the guilty party : ))

It should have been included on the chip.

I'm thinking about ALL the chipsets above and beyond USB. Heck I'm even seeing, IMO dumb stuff, cheaply produced DIMM slots causing unnecessary problems, and I'm questioning the DIGI+. A MOBO is loaded-up with all sorts of chips, on the X79 I really don't like how the AB | CD is split-up; right bank AB and left bank CD so the power distribution spits (kits) channels.

In a less specific manner, I really meant ALL the components and design of the newer MOBOs.

Can you link the one you're looking at? I noticed a micro version with fewer slots than the full size.

Hi,
Sorry for replying a little too late,as i didn't get any e-mail warning! Well, I couldn't find the link ...forgot where/ which it was!I bought mine on e-Bay!
This MOBO seems to have been discontinued as no UK retailer is stocking them anymore! However, you'd still be able to buy the M(micro) version, if that's what you're looking for? This Micro board has MOBO less expansion slots!
