Really nice layout, such as the dual 8pin placement and a rotated 24pin connector.
But the Classified logo on the SB looks a bit cheap.
otherwise, it looks awesome.

Should I be surprised that they've made a "Classified" board for P67? I would have thought they would reserve the Classy for X68...

The angled 24-pin is nice, hope it becomes a trend in other boards. Would have liked to see UEFI as a feature, but I guess it's still in early stages of adoption for PC. Also looks a little light on heatsinking, considering that earlier Classifieds tended to get hot in that area once you turned up the frequency. Is EVGA sticking with the digital VRM's for it's classified models? Or is the increase in phases because they're going down to analog.

EVGA made a P55 Classified as well as the X58. It's kind of their "Super Ultimate" brand now, like ASUS Republic of Gamers boards.

Is it not UEFI? Every other P67 board I've seen is UEFI in the specs, and I thought it was a requirement for the chipset.

Right you are - I completely forgot about the P55 Classy. Goes to show how irrelevant that board is, I guess.

Hopefully it uses EFI, because their bioses could always use some work.
