Value LGA-1155 Motherboards from ASUS Displayed

As motherboard manufacturers frantically came up with socket LGA-1155 motherboards to display, most ended up showing their upper-range (performance and enthusiast segments) products, barring ASUS which seems to be ready with a cost-effective ATX board based on the Intel P67 chipset called P8P67D, and micro-ATX based board based on the Intel H67 chipset, called P8H67D-M. The P8P67D uses a simple 4+2 phase CPU VRM that's controlled by the ASUS EPU chip, has expansion slots that include one PCI-Express 2.0 x16, four PCI-E x1, and two PCI. The TPU unit makes overclocking easier. Connectivity includes 8-channel audio, gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, SATA 6 Gb/s, IDE, and eSATA.

The P8H67D-M is based on the H67 chipset that features the Intel Flexible Display Interface (FDI), and connects the processor's on-die graphics controller to display connectivity which includes DVI and D-Sub. Expansion slots given are one each of PCI-Express 2.0 x16, PCI-E x1, and two PCI. The board makes do with six SATA 3 Gb/s ports, IDE, its connectivity features include 8-channel audio, gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0 and eSATA. One can expect these boards to be out in 2011.

I would like to know why you say it looks like crap, as I was under the impression the H67 chipset is suppose to actually support 600Mbps for sata 3 unlike the H57 chipset as well as RAID capabilities. The MATX mobo would be perfect for my HTPC system.

yea no kidding, go for socket 1366 if you hate these boards so much, I decided to switch over to htpc systems, and the last thing I want is something ricey.

I just want something solid and reliable I wont even see my mobo in my silverstone case.

No, that TPU (I guess it means "turbo processing unit") has nothing to do with Techpowerup.
