Intel’s Sandy Bridge CPUs need a new socket and NorthBridge to function. Asus’ Sabertooth P67 on test here satisfies both pre-requisites and proves itself a cracking companion to Intel’s latest line of screamers.

Being a new motherboard the Asus is equipped with a modern Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) rather than a 32-bit BIOS.

The UEFI not only looks better but it also allows interaction via a mouse and you get 3TB hard drive support. At last.

The Sabertooth P67 is also unique in that the entirety of the board is covered by what Asus refers to as ‘TUF Thermal Armour’. Essentially, the PCB is covered by a black plastic shroud that, apparently, helps dissipate heat and isolates the board’s capacitors, VRMs and MOSFETS from other heat sources. Whether or not this directly influenced our overclocking endeavors or not is hard to say but we were able to push our Intel Core i7-2600K processor to a colossal 4.2GHz.

In terms of performance the Asus didn’t disappoint. We recorded a CineBench R10 multi-core score of 25,970 while it took one minute and 34 seconds and 16 seconds to complete our Lame 3.97 audio encode test and DivX 720p encode test. Gaming-wise the Asus managed figures of 450.88fps and 7,090 in Street Fighter IV and Final Fantasy XIV. Superb results.

Verdict: The Sabertooth is a superb board to build your Sandy Bridge rig with. Its fast and overclockable.

When you look at the specs of the p67 board, it does look impressive. The design means that the full power of Intel’s new graphics set up can be utilised.
