Asus P8H67-M EVO - A Closer Look


Gigabyte may have stuck to their roots with their packaging theme, however Asus have unleashed an all new colour scheme - that's right folks. Black.

Like the Gigabyte, the accessory set is quite conventional. Note that a CrossfireX bridge is not included in either package despite motherboard support.

The box theme may have changed however motherboard style is identical to the previous generation. This however is not a bad thing as Asus' board layouts for most of the part have been well thought out in general.

The only major difference between the Asus and Gigabyte in terms of connectivity is the former's implementation of a PCI slot. This is great news for those who don't wish to get rid of their expensive Creative X-Fi Sound Cards or similar from x years ago. Otherwise, the ability to use up to 3 PCI-Express devices still stands.

So you're looking to build an entry level Sandy Bridge computer; which H67 board will win?

Co9uld it be possible that CPU OCing will be available via a bios upgrade with these boards?

Doubt it, I think the H67 motherboards are aimed at people that don't know or want to overclock, so they will purchase the non "K" CPUs.

I like the look of these (not just these two) for building pcs for other people.

The price may massage, but it all looks nice and handy to me.

A bit pricey imo for a board that is not going to appeal to basically the majority of the people with some knowledge of PC's apart from maybe people whom make/build PC's for customers. But still if I was building a computer for a simpleton whom only wanted to use it for internet/emails etc I would go with a cheaper board.

Edit*

Although saying that supporting GPU for a internet/email and some simple games user could completely eliminate the need to buy a graphics card which would save an extra £100ish but does it add up? £50 Mobo, £70 CPU & £80 GPU or £120 Mobo, £150 CPU £200 vs £270 for a everyday pc Ofcourse the sandybridge option will run smoother but is it worth the extra £70 :x!

This review lists your test setup as using Mushkin Redline DDR3 @ 1333MHz but it looks like Mushkin Redline DDR3 is rated for 1600MHz. Is it possible to run the RAM at 1600MHz (or higher) on these boards? From what I have read, the H67 chipset can allow memory OCs but I haven't been able to tell if any of the mobo makers have allowed it yet.
