Pros: This board has a ton of overclocking options. Very stable with enough PCIe lanes, it will do x16/x16.

Cons: Bios could use some work..

Other Thoughts: EVGA has always been about quality and performance. They didn't let me down..

3 out of 5 eggsWARNING: Does not support Ivy Bridge CPUs

Pros: Probably a great motherboard. I've been very pleased with EVGA boards in the past and I'm sure this one will be no different, but....

Cons: *** The P67 does NOT yet support Ivy Bridge processors ***

EVGA says they are working on a BIOS update for the P67 board so it can take the i7 and i5 Ivy Bridge CPUs, but for now make sure you are buying a Sandy Bridge CPU if you intend to build a system with this board.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

You are correct that at this time Ivy Bridge is not supported by the BIOS as the board was designed around the Sandy Bridge CPU's. Our Z77 boards do however support Ivy Bridge.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Lots of features and extras, temperature gauge on board

Cons: I didn't know much about the Marvell controller when I bought the motherboard, but I became an expert quickly with the problems I encountered. When connected to the SATA III ports controlled by Marvell, my new build would hang every other boot. I beat my head against the wall for weeks. Once I connected to the SATA II ports, the issues stopped. If you want to use SATA III don't get this board. My Windows performance score went from a 5.9 connected to Marvell to a 7.8 when I connected to the (supposedly slower) SATA II.

Other Thoughts: Expected more from a board that costs this much.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I do apologize for any issues with SATA III. The red SATA III ports are native to the Intel chipset. If there is an issue with the SATA III Intel controller we can support you with a replacement. Please contact our 24/7 technical support so we can assist you further (888)-881-3842

5 out of 5 eggsBe careful of video card size

Pros: Good board so far.

Cons: I will comment more later as I learn more about this board but I wanted to warn you that if you have a large video card, it will make contact with the chipset heatsink. This could be dangerous, so you are better off putting the card in a lower PCI-E slot. This board has plenty of PCI-E 2.0 x16 slots so you should have no problem getting your card in safely.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than a MIVE P67 and WS Revo P67

Pros: -Easily overclocks my cpu, much better than the Asus Maximus IV Extreme and the P8P67 WS Revolution (its true!).
-Supports triple sli.
-Pcie jumper shutoff option(or optional evga panel, ~$20); great for troubleshooting multiple cards when on water.
-Bios are very easy to work with.
-Motherboard block available! (Watercool Heatkiller, two-piece mb water block for the enthusiast water cooler :D ).

Cons: -Old school bios (love or hate it these days tbh)
-Pcie shutoff use very old school jumpers. Would like to see switches but not a total loss since EVGA does offer the bay panel as option.
-Very picky on ram. It won't let me run my Patriot ram at any speed other than default. Common issue with these boards, check the EVGA forums.
-Led debug at bottom, useless when you have three cards. Thank goodness my DD Double wide case is made of black, shiny, and reflective acrylic.
-Pcie slots spaced a little bit low (blame the chunky nf200 cooler). The P8P67 WS Revo has the best spacing of all the 1155 boards imho (P67 and Z68), pre IB.

Other Thoughts: After owning a P8P67 WS revolution for several months, then a Maximus IV Extreme P67, non of these boards could push my 2500k and 2600k past 4.9 using the basic overclocking options (though they never had any issues with my ram and I loved the digital bios). I picked up the EVGA after I decided to give the MIVE a second try and it turned out defective. Though, initially I was not thrilled with the old school bios after owning the two Asus boards, it was a cinch to get my cpu up and running. I was blown away how easily this board got my 2600k up to 5.1 with just basic adjustments. I was only using this board in hopes of getting another MIVE but its so good that I'm staying with it. I was gonna knock out one egg for the cons I listed but this is the first mb that has gotten me past 5.0 and it was super easy. Highly recommended and get the EVGA pcie switch panel if you are running three cards, especially with water.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Amazing EVGA Product

Pros: Great design, easy to overclock, and EVGA support.

Cons: The included info face plate did not fit as tight as I would have liked, so I decided to leave it out of the final PC. The case I used for this build was a Corsair Graphite (Black).

Other Thoughts: Newegg did not have this board in stock so I had to purchase it elsewhere but since this though only site worth looking for reviews I will comment here

2 out of 5 eggsP67 FTL

Pros: The board functions fine if I'm not overclockng, this is why it gets two eggs.

Unfortunately I bought this board for the express purpose of overclocking and driving my poor 2600K into the ground.
In this regard it fails. Hence I docked it three eggs.

The board could have better layout but then I saw the X79 series and I was suddenly okay with mine.

Cons: Now for the cons...

If everything is set to stock but I set the voltage high (over 1.4ish) it endlessly boot loops. No fault codes are given on the POST display.

Also if I use the front panel to add voltage the machine instantly shuts down.

If I set the multiplier higher than x46 it usually won't just start/restart but it takes you to BIOS where I have to save and exit again for it to boot/reboot properly. Even though the 4.8Ghz clock speed had proved stable for over a week. Apparently the board has its own opinion.

On more then one occasion the POST display has given me codes that were not in the manual. I just love those. Well they are in the manual but if you look they say something like "reserved for future use by AMI" or something to that effect. Either way it's annoying to no end.

Other Thoughts: Needless to say I have not been pleased with the boards performance thus far. I contacted tech support about the voltage problem (at that point I had owned the board for a couple of weeks) and they blamed the OC.

When your CPU does 4.8 at 1.31 for a week straight then you up the voltage by .1 and the whole computer instantly shuts off...the CPU isn't the problem. No BSoD, no warning, not a reboot...just off.

I even plugged in a 2nd 8 pin CPU power connector (yes, my PSU has 2) and no dice.

Of course now then if EVGA did RMA the board I would get a refurb back and since mine more or less works I won't take a chance on that so EVGA gets a free pass from me this time. Well, the only time because I won't buy another.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are unhappy with the performance of the board. Unfortunately we cannot directly assist with overclocking. From your description it sounds like you may have a weak CPU or it is possibly overheating. I would highly recommend you ask the advice of our forums regarding overclocking the board, they are very knowledgeable and eager to help: http://www.evga.com/forums/tt.aspx?forumid=37
