    After quite some lull, a new motherboard by EVGA is taking shape, the EVGA P67 FTW B3. As the name suggests, it is a top-tier motherboard by the company, based on the Intel P67 B3 chipset. The P67 FTW ("for the win", in gamer jargon) supports LGA1155 Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors, and is geared for extreme overclocking of CPU and GPUs, and is particularly laid out for supporting 3-way and 4-way NVIDIA SLI. The board uses an NVIDIA nForce 200 bridge chip over the processor's PCI-Express 2.0 x16 link to give out two x16 links, which are further configured as four x8 links, if four x16 slots are populated with graphics cards. The board uses a 12-phase CPU VRM with split heatsinks, the CPU is wired to four DDR3 DIMM slots, supporting dual-channel DDR3.

    Storage connectivity includes two internal SATA 6 Gb/s, four SATA 3 Gb/s; other connectivity includes 8-channel HD audio, two gigabit Ethernet interfaces, USB 3.0, and a number of USB 2.0. There are several overclocker-friendly features, such as support for EVGA EVBot, an external overclock control and monitoring module, jumpers to toggle specific PCI-Express slots, consolidated voltage measurement points, onboard power/reset buttons, and LED POST diagnostic readout. A strong VRM and feature-rich BIOS should top it up. The new board is priced at a juicy US $200, and should be available soon.

    That's pretty cheap compared to the pricing of their P55 lineup @ launch.

    That's really tempting considering I just spent $200 on this GA-P67A-UD4-B3 that's whining at me like no tomorrow. If they can come out with this within the next week and a half, I may return instead of exchange my GB board and snag one of these.

    LOL

    They already have the WTF version, they were the ones that were pulled out however because of the SATA/chipset issue. :laugh:
    Arrakis+9 and buggalugs say thanks.

    That's a pretty good price for such a feature packed board.:)

    I also like how the 24pin is angled.

    I find the board in a very bad desigh, they could have just gone with 3-4x PCIe slot and limited it to 3GPU config and added 2x PCI slot. this would be a killer budgt P67 mobo.

    I love my PCI soundcard mate..
    If a mobo doesn't have PCI, I skip it as a matter of routine.
    Naturally, if one isn't bound by this, then it is redundant, of course :)

    Yeah it's being dying for the past few years, that's why many sound cards are still released on pci, like mine :D

    Cant you get a widget for infra red? i used a usb creative infra pickup for a while, win 7 just installs the driver natively for it.

    Indeed!
    Such sacrilegious sentiments are quite unbecoming of you, good sir XD

    Although, I *do* like my PCI soundcard, as I pointed out above.

    Besides, have a look at the layout of the board.
    Say, just for argument's sake, you have 4x GTX580s and you want to SLi them.
    Oops..

    EDIT: Yes, unless they're single-slot or dual GPU solutions, there's no chance of quad SLi.
    "Let's try that again, shall we?
    Yes yes. Without the 'oops'"

    Bah, there's like 3478954 motherboards for you, but maybe a dozen available for us PCIe purists! ;)

    I'm waiting for the P67 'BBQ' version - it comes with an overclocked GTX 590.

    Tastefully packaged in the shape of an extinguisher perhaps?
