In order to begin we have our first board that is squarely targeted at the budget minded individual. The ASRock P67 Pro3 is the middle of the road motherboard, still offering quite a bit in the form of technology and features, but does not go over the top as to keep it at an affordable price point.
Anyone looking at the Pro3 will definitely get a solid motherboard with a whole lot of bells and whistles. Over the 6 months there has been a lot of talk of what the new Sandy Bridge technology would be all about. Surprisingly, most of the third hand information we received was pretty accurate. We even knew the cache, cores and speeds. Truth be told, there wasn’t much that was left for us to find out. Except for one thing: But now all that excitement is here and in the palm of our hands, and we can show you what it has to offer.
Will the new socket Core i3, i5 and i7 processors perform as well as their socket predecessor? Will the price of having to purchase a new motherboard be worth it? If so, how long will it be before we are doing this all over again?
These are precisely the questions we will try to answer for you in these coming days! We started it off with reviews of the ASUS P8P67 and P8P67 Probut while their price point is aimed at the mainstream market, it may not quite fit everyone’s upgrade budget. It is clear that ASRock is getting aggressive with the layout and color scheme of their motherboards lately, even with their mid-range models.
Continuing with the black, blue and white theme, we are seeing a change in heat sink styling. Nothing like the larger heat sinks we saw in arsock FX Deluxe4, but smaller ones which are still up to the task and a unique design displayed within them. We will talk more about the cooling in a few. The tour begins with the processor socket, which is made by Lotes. The clearance around the socket is low profile, making the decision on which heat sink to choose a lot simpler, and certainly broader.
However, while the mounting size has changed, if asfock look closely you’ll see ASRock has designed the board with mounting holes for the socket and coolers. So if you already have a high end model HSF you can continue to use it, saving a nice chunk of change that could go towards any number of other upgrades.
Memory support is not lacking in this mid-range motherboard either. Both protocols support RAID 0, 1, 10 and 5. Like most of the ASRock boards we have seen lately there is on-board power and reset buttons, as well as a Dr.
Early news indicated there was no native support for legacy PCI in the P67 chipset, so in order to get them on such a motherboard the manufacturers were left with adding an integrated PCIe-to-PCI adapter. The AXTU is a Windows software application that allows you to not only keep an eye on the monitoring aspects of your motherboard, but allows you to overclock it as well.
The application consists of four smaller application where each serves a different purpose. Under Fan Control you have rights to any fan that is connected to any of the motherboard fan headers. You can adjust the fan speed manually if you wish, or set it to Temperature for automatic speed control to keep the CPU or motherboard under a certain temperature. The Overclocking section is where we spent the most time.
You can also check the option box at the bottom so when you load AXTU those settings are applied. Additionally you can also check the box in the bottom right corner and when combined with the Auto Apply setting, will load the program at Windows start up, plus automatically apply your configured tuning.

After changing all the perimeters of the system you can save them as a profile in order to asrrock them later. If you want to save your hard earned dollars on the electricity bill, then enabling the IES function will shut down phases of the motherboard, and thus save power when less performance is needed.
The new interface allows you to navigate the BIOS using your keyboard as well as your mouse.
Intel Core i5 K 3. Microsoft Windows 7 bit Thermal compound: Well until someone can come up with a way to unlock the hold that Intel has on the chipset, whereby enabling independent BCLK control. But with all the testing we have done on other Sandy Bridge motherboards we had no issues with overclocking this one.

Since we are reviewing this po3 with a brand new retail version of the i5 K processor we started the multiplier at x Neither was x45 and x We ended the test at x47 with the CPU requiring 1. Then we tried to up the BCLK just to see what would happen. A system lock up is what happened! Wouldn’t even let us go past MHz. Regardless, it is a healthy 1.

The program was written by D. Takahashi in collaboration with Dr. Kanada at the computer center. This record should be the current world record. Details are shown in the windows help. This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environment such as Windows NT and Windows In order to calculate It’s nice because everyone running it will use the same video clip and software.
