Package & Accessories

Now that we have gone over the P8P67 PRO’s chipset and its extensive specifications, it is time to take a look at the packaging and the included accessories. At $190.00CDN+, this motherboard is firmly in the mainstream segment, so we expect to see at least a few included goodies.

Let's check it out:

For the P8P67 series, ASUS unveiled a new package design, and now they have added eye-catching B3 revision visuals as well. The box itself has a new black theme with an emphasis on the equally new DIGI+ VRM digital power design. The packaging is also adorned with logos illustrating this model's numerous features and specifications, and you will find quite a bit of additional information about all of the interesting ASUS-specific features on the back.

The accessories bundle is a little light on surprises, but honestly there's nothing missing. There are two SATA 3Gb/s cables and two SATA 6Gb/s cables, all of which feature 90-degree connectors. There is an expansion bracket with two USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ports, but this model doesn't come with the unique Front Panel USB 3.0 Box that ASUS have included with the higher-end P8P67 Deluxe. Lastly, there is the anti-EMI I/O panel, 2-Way SLI bridge connector, and Q-Connectors, which make attaching the case cables to the system panel connector a much easier process.

Here is a break down of the included items:
  • 2 SATA 3Gb/s Cables
  • 2 SATA 6Gb/s Cables
  • 2-port USB 3.0 Expansion Bracket
  • 3-port eSATA/USB PCI Expansion Bracket
  • 2-Way SLI Bridge Connector
  • I/O Panel
  • Manual / User Guide
  • Installation CD
  • Q-Connector

Now that we have taken a closer look at the accessories, let's do the same for the motherboard.
