Default EVGA P67 FTW Motherboard Review Comment Thread

With the release of Intel’s Z68, the P67 chipset may have become yesterday’s news but no one seems to have told EVGA since they have recently introduced their flagship P67 FTW. This motherboard has some big shoes to fill considering its predecessor –the P55 FTW- was a genre defining product. But with a long list of features and EVGA’s pedigree of creating overclocker friendly boards, this new FTW should have what it takes.

I'm surprised they managed to get anything out with most of the team leaving for Sapphire and Peter jumping ship to the ASUS Rog team. Pretty underwhelming with everything else that's had a 5 month lead on them, and what is with 'high end boards' still having marvell / realtek ethernet controllers on them.

Was Cinebench ran without HT? It shows ~8.5 points and I usually get ~9.8 at 5.0. Just wondering about the conditions that's all, I don't really bench a lot.

Heard from EVGA that the next BIOS release will improve memory compatibility. Might be the ticket for that 7-9-7 that I was gunning for.

Screws for ECP Panel are also now available. Contact EVGA support and they will send them to you for free.
